PRESS RELEASE BY SVEN HOLMBERG,

CHAIRMAN OF THE FEI JUMPING COMMITTEE

AND BUREAU MEMBER OF THE FEI

 

Today I have resigned as Chairman of the Jumping Committee and as Bureau member of the FEI.

My reasons go back more than a year; I did not agree with decisions that were being taken and in many of these cases I openly voiced a different opinion.  Some of the decisions were in fact altered, but after lengthy and very expensive procedures.

More recently the recommendations and advice of the Jumping Committee have been disregarded or dealt with in such a way as to convince me that, for whatever reason or reasons, the Jumping Committee is not respected as the technical advisor on the discipline of jumping.

My heart, my knowledge and my passion are, and have always been, with the sport and I have been seeking to make it grow and develop both at the very top level and also at lower levels outside the core area.  All who know me also know that my dedication is not limited to jumping only but includes all aspects of equestrian sport. 

The politics and the power games currently played in the FEI, which unfortunately expanded last year, will not benefit the development of our sport.  I find that in some aspects my integrity is being questioned.  I no longer find it meaningful, or useful, to participate in the politics as a Bureau member.

My passion for the sport, my experience and my know-how will always be there and I will be continuing in my other roles.
