The FEI Jumping Committee has ruled that the German team, which was withdrawn from the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup leg in St Gallen (SUI) on 31 May, will be permitted to take part in the remaining three Nations Cup qualifying competitions and earn points towards the 2013 Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup Final. However, he German team will not be awarded any points from the St Gallen event.  “The German National Federation respected its commitment by sending a team to take part in St-Gallen and acted in good faith with respect to that obligation,” John Madden, a member of the three-man panel said, “but the horse owners did not want their horses to jump due to the conditions. Neither the German National Federation nor the FEI has the right or the authority to instruct owners on what they must do with their horses at an event. “It would not be in the spirit of fair play to sanction the German National Federation because of a decision beyond its control, so the Jumping Committee has ruled that Germany will be eligible to collect points at its three remaining qualifying competitions at Rotterdam, Aachen and Hickstead in an effort to try to qualify for the 2013 Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Final.”
