IG­NASI CASAS VAQUE has been “re­lieved” of his FEI en­durance du­ties while fac­ing as yet un­spec­i­fied dis­ci­plinary ac­tions for his be­hav­iour at WEG.

He was chef d’equipe of the Span­ish team, who were in gold po­si­tion when the ride was stopped be­cause of the num­ber of dis­tressed horses be­ing re­ferred to the clinic.

On Face­book Live, Casas Vaque was seen at the cen­tre of ugly scenes, and can be clearly heard threat­en­ing the ground jury pres­i­dent Jean-Pierre Al­le­gret. Po­lice were called.

Dr Casas Vaque is also ex­pected to ex­plain why he wore a num­ber tabard al­lo­cated to the groom of an­other team.

De­ci­sions are still be­ing made about the dis­ci­pline of other of­fi­cials and par­tic­i­pants, fol­low­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the false start and other in­ci­dents by the FEI’s Equine Com­mu­nity In­tegrity Unit.
