2      Code of Conduct for the welfare of the horse

The WAWE expects all those involved in international equestrian sport to adhere to the Code of Conduct and to acknowledge and accept that at all times the welfare of the horse must be paramount and must never be subordinated to competitive or commercial influences.

 

  1. At all stages during the preparation and training of competition horses, welfare must take precedence over all other demands. This includes good horse management, training methods, farriery and tack, and transportation.
  2. Horses and athletes must be fit, competent and in good health before they are allowed to compete. This encompasses medication use, surgical procedures that threaten welfare or safety, pregnancy in mares and the misuse of aids.
  3. Events must not prejudice horse welfare. This involves paying careful attention to the competition areas, ground surfaces, weather conditions, stabling, site safety and fitness of the horse for onward travel after the event.
  4. Every effort must be made to ensure that horses receive proper attention after they have competed and that they are treated humanely when their competition careers are over. This covers proper veterinary care, competition injuries, euthanasia and retirement.
  5. The WAWE urges all involved with the sport to attain the highest levels of education in their areas of expertise.

The riders must have the passport of the country they represent.

WAWE in accordance with the national federation or national organization recognized by WAWE cannot authorize a participation of a rider that competed in non-WAWE competitions in the same year.

A rider that, from 2017 on, has already competed in a championship for one nation, is not

allowed to participate later for other nations.

 

The classification is based on the total number of points scored in accordance with a Score Chart (see Appendix 1 of the current regulations of WAWE) for the 3 best team performances in question in each of the 4 championship trials. In case of a team competing only with 3 riders, all their results count for the team classification.

After all the tests, and in case of equal number of points between teams, the tiebreak will be decided by the best total of points of each Team, in:

1 st – Dressage Test

2 nd – Maneability Test

3 rd – Speed Test

Any substitutions will comprise both horse and rider and not either horse or rider.

This classification will be based on the results achieved by competitors belonging to a National Team and wearing the traditional Working Equitation costume of the respective country, i.e. team members and reserves.

 

0 (zero) points will be awarded to any competitor disqualified in any trial.

 

The general classification will be ordered as follows:

 

  1. Number of trial completions.
  2. Highest number of points.

 

After all the individual Tests, and in case of equal number of points, the tiebreak for the higher places will be decided by the best result of each rider, in:

1 st – Dressage Test
