Horse & Hound - - News Insider -

THE In­ter­na­tional Jump­ing Rid­ers’ Club (IJRC) has un­der­lined it is work­ing “with, not against” the FEI and other ma­jor stake­hold­ers for the ben­e­fit of the sport.

French Olympic team gold medal­list Kevin Staut was elected as the IJRC’s new pres­i­dent in De­cem­ber.

“We’re not fight­ing against any­thing, we are sim­ply fight­ing to­gether for our sport,” said Kevin.

IJRC di­rec­tor Eleonora Ot­ta­viani stated the IJRC is not work­ing against the FEI, organisers, nor the Global Cham­pi­ons Tour or League.

“These events are im­por­tant for rid­ers,” she said. “We are work­ing to achieve our goal: to give equal chances to all ath­letes.

“We be­lieve we are all in the same boat and are try­ing to find a rea­son­able so­lu­tion.”
