Schedule CSI Ascona | TI (SUI) – 2013 Draft version 1, May 27th 2013 www.csi-ascona.ch Circle Assist® , Global Equestrian Services Page | 2 THE FEI CODE OF CONDUCT FOR THE WELFARE OF THE HORSE The Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) expects all those involved in international equestrian sport to adhere to the FEI’s Code of Conduct and to acknowledge and accept that at all times the welfare of the horse must be paramount and must never be subordinated to competitive or commercial influences.

1. At all stages during the preparation and training of competition horses, welfare must take precedence over all other demands.

This includes good horse management, training methods, farriery and tack, and transportation. 2. Horses and competitors must be fit, competent and in good health before they are allowed to compete. This encompasses medication use, surgical procedures that threaten welfare or safety, pregnancy in mares and the misuse of aids. 3. Events must not prejudice horse welfare. This involves paying careful attention to the competition areas, ground surfaces, weather conditions, stabling, site safety and fitness of the horse for onward travel after the event.

4. Every effort must be made to ensure that horses receive proper attention after they have competed and that they are treated humanely when their competition careers are over. This covers proper veterinary care, competition injuries, euthanasia and retirement. 5. The FEI urges all involved with the sport to attain the highest levels of education in their areas of expertise. A full copy of this Code can be obtained from the Fédération Equestre Internationale, HM King Hussein I Building, Chemin de la Joliette 8, 1006 Lausanne, Switzerland, Telephone: +41 21 310 4747. The Code is available in English & French.

The Code is also available on the FEI’s website: www.fei.org.

ADVERTISING AND PUBLICITY ON ATHLETES AND HORSES The athletes are authorised to carry the logo of their personal sponsor in accordance with FEI Art. 256.3 and 257.3 of the FEI Rules for Jumping. The Chief Steward will check that the advertising and publicity on Athletes and horses complies with these articles. Athletes not complying with art. 136 will be reported to the Ground Jury and will not be permitted into the arena during the course of the competition, until the use of the sponsor’s logo is in compliance with this article.

2. GENERAL CLASSIFICATION AT THE END OF THE COMPETIONS Prix du Vainqueur | ‘Zenith’ Prize in kind: A Zenith watch, representing a value of CHF 10’000,-- for the athlete, being the best classified during the big tour at CSI 3* Ascona – 2013. The classification will be established as follows: In the competitions no 5, 10, 12 and 16 points are awarded according to the following system: The winner gets as many points as the total number of athletes starting in the competition; the second placed athlete gets one point less etc. In case of ex-aequo placing all respective athletes will receive the points corresponding to their placing.

Athletes eliminated or having retired will receive no points; however, this does not apply to eliminations or retirements during any jump-off or second round. Notwithstanding the above, the points obtained in the competitions no 5, 10 and 12 will be multiplied by 1 and the points obtained in competition no 16 will be multiplied by 2.

In case of equality of points for the first place of the final ranking of the Prix du Vainqueur, the best result obtained in competition no 16 (the Grand Prix) will be decisive. Should this result be equal also, the best result obtained in competition no 5 will first serve as tie breaker; subsequently, in case of further equality, the best result obtained in competition no 10 will be decisive. The provisional classification will be updated following each competition, the results of which are counting for the Prix du Vainqueur ranking.

3. PRIZE GIVING CEREMONY Following each competition a distribution of prizes will take place; with the exception of the Grand Prix: athletes up to and including the 6th place will be invited to attend to each prize giving ceremony.

For the Grand Prix, athletes up to and including the 8th place will be invited to attend to the prize giving ceremony. The owner(s) of the winning horse(s) of the Grand Prix is (are) entitled to attend to the prize giving ceremony. 4. INSURANCES All owners and athletes will be personally responsible for damages to third persons caused by themselves, their employees, their agents or their horses. They are therefore strongly advised to take out third-party insurance providing full coverage for participation in equestrian events at home and abroad, and to keep the policy up to date.

The Organising Committee will not accept responsibility for any accident happening to owners, participants, grooms, to or because of their horses to third parties in whichever circumstances, inside or outside the show grounds, during, before or after competitions.
