The rules apply to eventsstarting at or after April 1, 2013. With this release is is possible to enter the times of bothheats in Flag Race FR1.FIPO 2013The new edition of FIPO contains changes decided upon by the Delegates Assembly2013. To follow the same line in finals in Tölt classes and in gaited classes it is decidedto change FIPO in such way, that the sequence of gaits in finals in four gait and five gaitis no longer open for discussion among riders, but has to follow the sequence asdescribed in FIPO. At the last three World Championships riders couldnt choose theirown start box, but had to take the box marked with their colour. This was done toensure calm and quiet handling of the start, and the general feeling is that it helped.However some riders considered this as being of disadvantage, as they could changeeven if they would agree. It is decided now to adapt FIPO 8.5.5 in such way, that thefastest rider in a start group has to decide before the start group is called into the startboxes which box the rider prefers, with no right of change the moment the startingprocedure has started. These changes in FIPO will be valid for events starting at or afterApril 1, 2013. Before that date FIPO 2012 is still valid. All changes are listed in a list ofchanges, available for download. The complete FIPO is available for download as well.Doping case at Mid European Championships: B-sample confirms A-sampleThe results of the B-sample of the doping test from the Mid EUropean Championships2012 are now available: The Institute for Biochemistry of the German Sporthochschulein Köln in presence of a representative of the rider opened the sealed sample, whichhad been taken routinely from Sjarmi frá Skriðuklaustri (starting for Austria). In theanalysis the prohibited substance mefenamin acid was also found in the B-sample.Following the anti-doping statutes of our German member association IPZV and theGerman FN evidence of the existence of a prohibited substance has been provided incase of identical results of the A- and B-sample. The arbitration panel of IPZV will onthis basis now continue the procedure against the rider of Sjarmi, Petra Reiter-Tropper.FEIF Events until 10 August 2013 European Championships - Horses on Haarlem (nr23-Mar Netherlands Ice 2013 Amsterdam)05-Apr - FEIF Sport Judges Seminar Berlin Germany06-Apr (International Sport Judges)06-Apr World Championships Sport Judges Berlin Germany
