Equestrathon: the new name of Eventing?

Eventing Horse UAE

Equestrian triathlon, Equestrathon or Tri-equathlon?

The FEI is set to examine a list of proposed changes later this month at the FEI Sports Forum in Switzerland that would enact sweeping overhauls to eventing at the Olympic, championship and all FEI levels.

This comes after the FEI hired Charles Barnett, former director of Ascot Racecourse, to “conduct an audit into eventing with the purpose of identifying factors that may affect eventing as an Olympic sport.”

You can read all the background on why the FEI is proposing these changes at the beginning of the document at this link. But let’s jump right in, shall we?

One of the changes is to the name of the sport.  Proposed names are:
1.Equestrian triathlon
2.Equestrathon
3.Tri-equathlon
