FEI Events in Australia

In the past, Australia has had special dispensation to use our AERA logbooks at FEI events instead of the official FEI/EFA passports. This is no longer an option as the FEI is insisting that each national federation must be using the same documentation at international events.

The AERA has come to an agreement with the EFA that instead of the full FEI passport ($260), AERA state divisional members may compete at FEI events using the EFA National Identification Document (NID).

The NID is available from the EFA National office at a cost of $88 and is valid for four years. A veterinary identification will be required. You will need the NID to compete at all 3 Star FEI events. You will not need the NID to compete at 2 Star events. Also, you do not need to be a member of the EFA to purchase a NID.

Members are also reminded that all horses and riders must have a current FEI registration to be eligible to compete at FEI events. Cost is $20 per year per horse, and $20 per year per rider. FEI Registration application – Horse and/or RiderFEI Registration application – Horse and/or Rider

Any nomination for this series must be sent in one month prior to the first event for that horse.

For riders and horses entering the 2* you must have the equivalent * qualification to enter the event, ie. a successful completion of 1* ride or in the old rules a 2* (90-119 km) in the preceding 24 months. This will have to be produced at time of entry or preferably at time of nomination
