Step 1: To change a horse name, you must type the new current name in the box and choose an option from the Kind of Change drop down list. You must then click on SAVE at the bottom of the page.

 

If the birth name was incorrectly entered on account creation, this can be changed choosing “Other change requiring FEI validation”.

Please Note: This will only be exempt from being invoiced if a copy of the national passport or breed/birth certificate is uploaded to the FEI Database or sent to the FEI for confirmation: passport@fei.org

 

Spelling mistakes can be corrected also by choosing “Other change requiring FEI validation”.

Please Note: This will only be exempt from being invoiced if a copy of the national passport or breed/birth certificate is uploaded to the FEI Database or sent to the FEI for confirmation: passport@fei.org

 

The relevant sticker needs to be printed - please refer to Step 3.

 

Step 2: If a Commercial Name (prefix/suffix) is being added to the horse, which will incur a financial charge, please enter this in the Commercial Name field and choose “Modification (Invoiced)”.

 

Step 3: A Change of Name sticker must be downloaded and stuck on the FEI document.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 4: Once the sticker has been placed on the FEI document a new scan of page 1 (name page) will need to be uploaded to the FEI Database.

The system generates a line in the Documents section and requires a scan of the relevant page to be uploaded.

It is possible to upload a Full Document or only the necessary Name Page.
