This week, the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) launched FEI Campus, a unique and free e-learning gateway for everyone with a love of horses and equestrian sport, wherever they are in the world.
FEI Campus content and courses have been carefully crafted by equestrian experts and are designed for everyone, including those looking for invaluable horse training and stable management tips to educational programs on veterinary needs, equine behaviour and also for judging certification.
The platform is designed to give the equestrian community an immersive experience, with all courses and connection with tutors and peers just a click away from any device.
FEI Campus will be constantly enriched with up-to-the-minute and wide-ranging information to reflect the global interests of the rapidly growing international equestrian community, which now includes over 41,000 athletes, 7,500 officials and 750 million fans around the world.
One of the key goals of this important development tool is to make it less expensive for current and future FEI officials from across the world to get education, meaning that they will be able to follow courses without the costs of travelling and accommodation. Although FEI Campus cannot replace practical courses, it will also help reduce education costs for our National Federations.
“FEI Campus is a real milestone for equestrian sport,” FEI President Ingmar De Vos said.
“We’re connecting to millions of fans by sharing invaluable content on a sport and hobby we all love, and we’re modernizing the way we educate our officials and athletes with the natural efficiencies that come with e-learning.
“We’ve focused on making strong, memorable and attention grabbing content that is easily accessible for our international equestrian community that is always on the go.
“This is just the beginning for FEI Campus, with new information and courses being added throughout 2017 and beyond.”
