LAUSANNE, Switzerland, Sept. 4, 2015–The World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses (WBFSH) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the International Equestrian Federation (FEI).

The WBFSH represents 70 sport horse studbooks from more than 30 countries with the aim of stimulating horse breeding development worldwide and integrating breeding with horse sport.

Under the agreement, the two bodies agreed to establish a FEI WBFSH Council to strengthen collaboration.

“Breeders produce horses that our athletes need, and for that reason the horse breeding industry needs the support of equestrian sport,” said Jan Pedersen, WBFSH president. “Our cooperation with the FEI is logical, natural and a necessary link between producers and consumers, which we must nurse and nourish.”

The WBFSH has cooperated with the FEI on the organization of the FEI World Breeding Championships for Sport Horses in the three Olympic disciplines of dressage, eventing and jumping since 1992.
