Pan Am Games Qualification & Jumping Rules
Please find following a discussion paper from the
FEI
Technical Committees, submitted to thePan American Equestrian Confederation (
PAEC
) during the recent
FEI
General Assembly. The paper proposes options for qualification systems to determine which athletes may participate inthe three equestrian events at future Pan American Games. It also suggests potential changes tothe rules and format of Jumping at the Games themselves. The new qualification systems andcompetition rules would come into effect in time for the 2015 Toronto Games.
Qualification Systems
As you may be aware, at the 2011 Guadalajara Pan American Games, Equestrianism exceeded itsquota of athletes in all three disciplines. Currently, the Pan American Sports Organisation(
PASO
) sets a maximum of 130 equestrian athletes at any Pan American Games: 40 in Dressage;40 in Eventing; and 50 in Jumping. Nevertheless, there were 157 equestrian athletes at Guadalajara.
PASO
agreed to allow the extra 27 competitors at these Games because the unprecedented number of interested athletes was genuinely unforeseen, and because the excess costs to the competitionorganisers were offset by
PAEC
and the
FEI
. Given the 2011 experience, it would not bereasonable for our sport to expect
PASO
to accommodate numbers beyond the quota at futureGames.I expect that, with the $1.1million horse transport subsidy the 2015 Toronto OrganisingCommittee has promised to
PAEC
countries, we will see still more equestrians coming forwardfor the Toronto Games. The
PAEC
Chair and Executive Director are in discussions with
PASO
 about increasing Equestrianism’s quota for 2015 and beyond, but it is possible that
PASO
willeither decline to increase the quota, or that it will increase the quota to a level that still will notaccommodate all the equestrian athletes countries wish to send. We will therefore likely need aqualification system to determine which athletes are able to compete at future Pan AmericanGames.

Jumping Rules
The FEI Jumping Committee has made some detailed proposals, designed in part to bring the PanAmerican Jumping rules more in line with those that prevail at the Olympics for which they serveas qualifiers.
Consultations
I should be grateful if you would take some time to review the attached document and to discussits proposals at a meeting of the
EC
High Performance Committee.Given the gravity of the decision before us, it is important that our three Olympic disciplinecommittees carry out consultations with our athletes’ committees and with our membership atlarge on the qualifications proposals, to ensure that Equine Canada’s ultimate position has the benefit of the widest range of views and is genuinely representative of and accountable to theathletes and disciplines affected.The proposals on Jumping Rules should of course be referred solely to our Jumping disciplinecommittee, and include similar athlete and member consultations.
PAEC
has indicated that its discussions with
PASO
will unfold over the next month, so I will needto ask you to assemble the initial views of our Olympic disciplines no later than31 December 2011. I will let you know the deadline for our final submission, as soon as the dateis set by
PASO
.With best wishes,Akaash

2015 Pan Am Games – DRESSAGE
Proposal from the Dressage Department for the 2015 Pan Am Games Eventing competitions to beconsidered during PAEC meeting at the 2011 FEI GA Rio de Janeiro, November.1.
 
Level of competition
: discussions with PAEC during the Pan Ams involve proposals of teams in 2015, consisting of a minimum number of riders in the small tour and a minimumnumber of riders in the Big tour, which will together make a team. This could be a goodstep in the direction of having a pure Big tour team competition in the future. This will of course also have an effect on the number of participants.2.
 
Quota
: based on 40 athletes/horsesThe first feedback, before discussion it with the Dressage Committee, would be twocriteria:-
 
A minimum eligibility criteria, which should be 60% in respective level, obtained by an FEI judge. It has to be discussed if this has to be done on a CDI or if a national event isenough-
 
If more than 40 participants enter, the number has to be capped. As this is a qualifier forthe Olympics, we must secure that the best teams are permitted to participate. One waycould be to cap the individual participants, based on their obtained eligibility results.
2015 Pan Am Games – EVENTING
Proposal from the Chairman of Eventing Committee/Eventing Department for the 2015 Pan AmGames Eventing competitions to be considered during PAEC meeting at the 2011 FEI GA Rio deJaneiro, November.1.
 
Level of competition
: Eventing to remain at 2 star level CCI for 2011 (however only one(from 2) qualifying space for the Olympic Games, as the level has been lowered from 3star, the issue being the difficulty of the nations to reach minimum eligibility standards if qualified at this level).The 2 star level was discussed at the Eventing Open Forum during the Eventingcompetitions in Guadalajara and there was an agreement that the lower level was currentlyadequate for the region, however the Olympic qualification was essential for NOCs tofinancially support the teams participation.2.
 
Quota
: based on 40 athletes/horses. 5 athletes/horses per team (as per Olympic format)to be reduced to 4 per nation if over the 40 quota. (to be mentioned in Pan AmRegs/Equestrian handbook)3.
 
Qualification procedure
:-
 
Increase the minimum eligibility results for the Pan Am Eventing to riders and horseshaving completed a CCI2* & a CIC2* with a reinforced MER for both competitions (max60 Dressage penalties, no penalties on XC and 4 obstacle penalties in Jumping)
Note:the principle is already used for World Young Horse Championship
.-
 
If the quota is over 40 then reduce the team to 4 riders-
 
If the quota is still over 40, then use ranking list of the region as basis for selection andreserve list.It is believed that 2015 will be a different in Toronto as the distance away for the South AmericanCountries, therefore to keep the 5 per nation would be good to ensure that the quota is met.
