The FEI has been forced to make yet another statement during this Olympic Games.
This time, it concerns a meeting which took place in the competitors’ briefing room, as FEI vice-president Chris Hodson said “at the very unusual time of 1.30am on Monday morning”.
It involved the ground jury, TD, appeal committee, FEI officials and representatives of the Danish, German, Dutch and American teams.
Other teams have raised concerns as to why this was taking place, mid competition, and a second meeting was held the following day with representatives from all competing teams.
The matter is now the subject of an FEI enquiry and a statement is expected soon.
