badminton time

IN last week’s issue, the statisticians predicted Ingrid Klimke would win this year’s Badminton. And a few days later, she withdrew. So little is certain in horse sport, but we are at least guaranteed an exciting competition at Badminton this week. It’s like Groundhog Day for Oliver Townend, returning from Kentucky with a win on Cooley Master Class and heading straight on to Badminton. He is surely a favourite to lift the three-horse trophy on Sunday, which would see him having a crack at the Rolex Grand Slam again come Burghley. An equal chance this week sits with our horse hero (p28), Laura Collett’s ride Mr Bass — a horse once destined for a very different career having failed the vetting on X-rays. Hope, then, for anyone who needs the inspiration…

opinion divided on official film and flag rule

OLYMPIC disciplines have clashed over whether unofficial video evidence should be allowed in appeals. The use of video evidence was raised at the FEI sports forum (15-16 April). Panellists from the Olympic disciplines were divided over whether unofficial video recordings, such as smartphone clips, should be considered by officials when riders challenge their decisions. It has been a particularly hot topic in eventing, where appeals over the controversial flag rule (news, 11 April) have hinged on one camera angle. FEI deputy legal director Áine Power said “a lot has changed” since the video rule was introduced in 2012. “We all walk round at an event with basically a high-definition video camera in our pockets,” she said, referring to mobile phones. She added the FEI has been discussing updating its rules to “keep with the times”…

measuring of ponies is in for major overhaul

PONY measuring faces an overhaul following a high-profile dispute at an international competition last summer. The FEI has revealed plans for a new system, which it hopes will be fairer and lead to less heartbreak as a result of equines “measuring out” at competitions. A dispute over a pony’s height and the measuring area at Hagen in Germany escalated to two FEI tribunals (news, 6 September). Under current rules, ponies can be measured at events and may be up to 150cm unshod. “It is stressful for children, parents, chef d’equipes, trainers and not to mention the measuring vets,” said FEI veterinary director Dr Göran Akerström at the FEI sports forum (15 to a6 April). “The height tolerance of 2cm at shows has created a drift towards too-large ponies. It’s also a bit irrational as if…
