FEI has approved the updated rules for 2021;
Some interesting ones;
547.2.4 Frangible/Deformable Obstacles: The introduction of mandatory frangible devices to higher level events will be extended across all levels for 2021. All open oxers, open corners, verticals or near verticals with open rails, top rail on triple bars and gates where the rail dimensions and weight fit the acceptable parameters of an FEI approved frangible device, must be fitted with frangible devices.
547.2.5 Water Crossings: Each cross-country course must have at least one obstacle related to water.
LOVE this one
547.2.7 Ground Lines: Ground lines must be used on fences at all levels.
Also clarification on a rule that last year had a lot of discussion;
Annex A 1.2 & 1. 5 (Dressage bits): The ‘French link’ snaffle is allowed.
Looks like leather bits are allowed for dressage too?
