In a 5 minute video posted on Facebook, Tarek Taher of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the FEI’s Endurance Rider Representative, announced that he had submitted his resignation to the FEI on 7th September 2020. As a consequence he will also no longer be a member of the FEI Endurance Task Force. Taher has been in this position since 2018. He took on the role at a time when relationships between many in endurance and the FEI were strained. He stated that he had recently found that his own “personal code of ethics” and the FEI policies were in conflict and specifically mentioned the COVID-19 policy for “return to play”. Taher has been involved in high level endurance since the 1997 World Cup Final in Doha in which he was placed first. Taher also thanked all the members of the FEI Endurance Committee and the FEI for its vision in establishing the rider representatives and different committees to provide a “better world for the horses”. So far there has been no comment from the FEI.
