At this moment, Jeroen Houterman (NED), Miguel Gutierrez (ESP), Benjamin Aillaud (FRA) and Heather Briggs (USA) sit on the committee that is overseen by the chairman, Károly Fugli (HUN). As an athlete representative you will also function as part of the FEI Athletes Committee, which is formed from representatives across all FEI disciplines.

To apply as a candidate you must be 18 years of age or older when voting opens (1 July 2022) and have represented your country at least once at a World- or Continental Championship for Seniors in the last 8 years. You must also have a clean anti-doping record with respect to both the Equine Anti-Doping & Control Medication Rules (EADCMRs) and the Anti-Doping Rules or Human Athletes (ADRHAs) as of April 2012.
