18/10/2020 – Various social media have announced lately that Reining is no longer an FEI approved discipline because the FEI and NRHA cannot come to an agreement. Consulting the FEI learns that Reining remains an FEI discipline, although both the NRHA and the FEI came to the conclusion that an agreement between the two bodies could not be reached for governance-related reasons. The FEI is the governing body of equine sports worldwide; the NRHA is the governing body of the reining sports worldwide.
The only way an FEI discipline can be removed is by a vote of the member National Federations at the FEI General Assembly and that is not on the table for the 2020 edition, which will be held online next month.
