‘Not an attempt to censor or prevent transparency’: FEI responds to outcry over rules on filming

The FEI has told H&H that updates to its policy on filming at certain shows are to protect broadcasting agreements – and “are in no way an attempt to censor or prohibit transparency”.

This week confusion has arisen online following updates to the FEI’s social media guidelines at “FEI named events”. Although this policy is not new, concerns have been raised by some that they could have an impact on openness in the industry.

FEI named events include World and European Championships, World Cups, Nations Cups, and the Longines League of Nations, and the guidelines apply to “non-rights holders”’ such as riders, rider support personnel such as grooms, owners, national federations, officials and accredited media. The policy relates to content published on websites, blogs, social media, and mobile apps.
