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.
: 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.
: 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.
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.
