After competing in a National Event or FEI Event, a Horse may not compete in any National Event(s) or FEI Event(s) for the following Mandatory Out of Competition Period:
839.2 Additional MOOCP:
839.2.1 In addition to the period set out in Article 839.1, the following Mandatory Out of Competition Periods and other consequences will apply where the following circumstances occur at an FEI Event or National Event (where more than one of the circumstances below apply, the additional Mandatory Out of Competition Periods will be cumulative):
839.2.2 It is the responsibility of the President of the Veterinary Commission, President of the Treating Veterinary Commission, and Foreign Veterinary Delegate to review the treated Horses at the end of the Competition on a case by case basis, and to specify if those Horses must (i) have an additional Mandatory Out of Competition Period under Article 839.2.1, or (ii) receive authorised treatment, without requiring such additional Mandatory Out of Competition Period.
839.2.3 The Mandatory Out of Competition Period for Serious Injuries or repeated FTQ-ME may be extended further at the discretion of the FEI Veterinary Department based on a diagnosis by a designated referral centre or other approved clinic (see Article 840).
839.3 Consequences during MOOCP:
839.3.1 For Article 839.1, the standard Mandatory Out of Competition Period starts to run from 00:01 GMT the day after the relevant ride finishes (the end of the ride is determined by the maximum ride time allowed), and finishes at midnight GMT on the last day of the Mandatory Out of Competition Period. For Article 839.2, any additional Mandatory Out of Competition Period starts to run from 00:01 GMT the day after the standard Mandatory Out of Competition Period expires, and finishes at midnight GMT on the last day of the additional Mandatory Out of Competition Period. In any case, the published ride start time of the Horse’s next competition (national or international) must fall after the expiry of the applicable Mandatory Out of Competition Period.
839.3.2 FEI-registered Horses may not compete in any National Events or FEI Events during any Mandatory Out of Competition Period. Failure to comply with this provision will result in the penalties set out in Article 864.
839.3.3 If a Horse participates in a National Event or FEI Event during any Mandatory Out of Competition Period, the Athlete who rode the Horse (and the Trainer of the Horse, if applicable) will receive an official notification from FEI Headquarters. The penalty points and suspension set out in Article 864 will take effect as of the date of the FEI notification. The results obtained by that Horse (and by any Athlete riding that Horse) in the National Event or FEI Event concerned (and in any subsequent National Events/FEI Events up to the date of notification) will be Disqualified.
