Dear Friend Jumping Official,

On behalf of the International Jumping Officials Club (IJOC), we hope this letter finds you well.

As you all know, we’ve been actively working on a proposal to improve the remuneration policy for FEI Jumping Officials at international jumping events. The past few months the board of our club has been closely working together with different stakeholders (like the Equestrian Organisers) and the FEI. We are delighted to inform you that yesterday during the yearly FEI Hybrid General Assembly in Cape Town (South Africa) the new policy has been approved. These new amounts (with differentiation between levels, shows and even regions) outlined in the table, will go into effect as of January 1st, 2023.

This is a starting point in our journey for more professionalism and of course not the ending point. We want to continue on this path and start additional discussions on how to move forward in the near future together with all stakeholders, including but not limited to evaluation of officials and appointment of officials.

During our 2023 Officials Forum in Lisbon (Portugal), where we will also have our General Assembly as well as different maintenance courses, we want to talk to you about these challenges ahead of us and have a roundtable about “The Future of Officiating”. We are looking forward to meet you there in Lisbon and talk about the future.

Kind Regards,

Ali Küçük
Secretary General
Glenn Maes
