Lexington, KY- The United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) is pleased to announce that 19 USEF eventing competitions have been approved by the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) as Targeted CNs. The approval of FEI Targeted CNs comes in response to concerns voiced by National Federations to the FEI regarding Eventing Rules that went into effect January 1, 2013. Among the new rules implemented was the deletion of CNs, often referred as National Horse Trials, in the Matrix of Qualification in order to move up the levels of FEI Competition.
Results achieved at FEI Targeted CNs will be considered equivalent to that of a CIC of the same level, this will only be effective in the 2013 competition year.
However, it is important to note that qualifying results at FEI Targeted CNs may only be used for the purpose of qualifying for a higher level in 2013 but will not count towards rider categorization by the FEI. Additionally, qualifying results achieved at FEI Targeted CNs may not be used to qualify for the Adequan/FEI North American Junior & Young Rider Championships presented by Gotham North.
The list of FEI Targeted CNs in the U.S. can be found here.
