4.3 - Invitations and Competition Entries


Details regarding invitations to compete must be listed in the event's FEI Schedule. Invitations must be managed in accordance with Art 115 of the FEI General Regulations and the relevant discipline's rules (see below). For CI competitions, invitations can be sent directly to National Federations by the Organising Committee. Invitations to National Federations to compete at a CIO (Art 103 FEI General Regulations) must be sent by the National Federation of the host country. Discipline specific rules relating to invitations can be accessed as follows:

The FEI Online Invitation System for Jumping has been developed to manage the CSI Invitation Rules corrrectly (Annex V FEI Jumping Rules). Further information can be found here. There is also a comprehensive 'how to' information available for Athletes and National Federations using the Jumping Online Invitation System here.

Athlete & Horse Registration

All Athletes and Horses participating in FEI competitions must be registered with their own National Federation and the FEI in accordance with Art 113 of the FEI General Regulations. National Federations are responsible for processing all registrations (National Federation and FEI). For more information click here.


As with invitations, entry conditions and details regarding the entry process must be listed in the FEI Schedule. Entries are regulated through Art 116 of the FEI General Regulations and for CI competitions primarily through the relevant discipline's rules:

FEI Entry System

The FEI has developed an online entry system that must be used for submitting and processing entries to FEI events. Comprehensive entry system user information for Organising Committees can be found here.  Furthermore there is an FAQ section here. Currently the FEI Entry System has been implemented across a number of disciplines.  Further information about the FEI Entry System for each discipline can be accessed below:







The FEI How To online resource includes plenty of detailed information about the FEI Entry System and how to use it. The relevant section can be accessed here. There is a specific section dedicated to the FEI Entry System for Jumping

The FEI will notify National Federations and Organisers when the FEI Entry System is being introduced for other disciplines. In the meantime an Organiser of disciplines not yet catered for in the FEI Entry System may use their own or National Federation's system for receiving and administering competition entries.
