FEI Extraordinary General Assembly approves removal of reining as a discipline

The International Equestrian Federation (FEI) has removed reining as one of its disciplines, after modifications to its Statutes were approved at an Extraordinary General Assembly.

The FEI Board decided last month not to sign a new agreement proposed by the National Horse Reining Association "because it considered it devoid of any meaningful commitment."

It agreed to maintain a decision taken in June to ask the General Assembly for the removal of reining as a discipline because "as per the FEI Statutes, the FEI shall be the sole governing body for the FEI Disciplines, which is not the case for reining."

An Extraordinary General Assembly is required for changes to the Statutes.

It began with the election of scrutineers for both the Extraordinary General Assembly and Ordinary General Assembly, held in a hybrid format for the first time.
