New Water Jump Rules
2013 Specifications for water jumps – REMINDER!
As indicated in the modifications to the Jumping Rules approved by the 2011 FEI General Assembly and published on the website on 8 December 2011, Art. 211.1, relating to the water jump, was modified as follows:
1. For an obstacle to be called a water jump, there must be no obstacle in front, in the middle or behind the water. The water must have a minimum spread in excess of two metres and must be dug into the ground. For details of how the water jump should be constructed refer to the Memorandum for International Jumping Events on the FEI website.
Effective 1 January 2013: If the water jump does not meet the specifications as described in the Memorandum for International Jumping events, a vertical obstacle must be placed over the water as described in JRs Art. 211.10.
In addition to being included in the Memorandum for International Jumping Events, the specifications for the water jump have been published on the FEI website in the Jumping/Rules section.
NFs are asked to ensure that all OCs of outdoor events are aware of the above so that they can take steps, if necessary, to reconstruct their water jump prior to the 2013 outdoor season.
