Postponing the Olympics does not affect the time line on the implementation of the new FEI hind boot rules.
Normally, these rules would be applicable starting the first of January 2021. The general idea was that riders qualifying and riding the Olympics, would have been subject to the same set of FEI rules. But the FEI announces now that this date remains.
The new rules were already in use during FEI events for U25, Young Riders, Juniors, Pony's, Children, Amateurs en Veterans.
