Dates: July 23-Aug 8, 2021
USEF will use its best efforts to keep the general process outlined in the Selection Procedures intact as much as possible; however, there will be unavoidable, necessary changes. Specifically, any upcoming dates/deadlines referenced within the Selection Procedures are hereby postponed. While the IOC has confirmed that all quota places already assigned for the Tokyo 2020 Games will remain unchanged, it is expected that the FEI will revise the parameters listed in the FEI bullet below.
Along with the postponement of the timing of selection decisions/announcements, other changes are being re-evaluated and will be communicated as soon as possible. These include any/all of the following:
- FEI: Age eligibility parameters, entry deadlines, Minimum Eligibility Requirement timelines, horse ownership deadlines.
- USOPC: Final team nomination deadline, long list deadlines.
- USEF: Application due dates, selection trials, Short List timelines, team nomination dates, evaluative events and/or criteria.
