In case of doubt or problems, please contact the FEI Veterinary Department as soon as possible. Please note the conditions to be met and the documents to be completed prior to importing horses into Switzerland for the period of the competitions. (See attachments) B) CUSTOMS FORMALITIES Details of required customs documents, border crossing points, times of opening and customs agencies. NFs holding an international event in their country should inform their National Veterinary Authority and their Customs Authority at least four weeks beforehand.

These three documents must be presented at the Swiss Customs' Office upon entry. NB: for the temporary import of horses only occasionally crossing borders (Attractions, etc.) our Customs Agent can obtain ­ for the period of the horse show only ­ a customs permit, in lieu of the ATA Carnet, at a significantly reduced cost. Should you be interested in this solution, please contact Mr. André Barthassat at FERT & Co. Tel. +41 79 659 80 54 or [email protected], by 19th March 2010 at the latest.

When filling in the ATA document (provided by the Chamber of Commerce), do not forget to mention details of equipment accompanying the horses. Customs' papers, ATA Carnet and customs permit must be presented at the veterinary inspection.

17

In case of problems with pre-issued ATA Carnets which need to be amended, the official customs agent FERT & Cie will charge CHF 50.- for entry into Switzerland and CHF 50.- for return into the EC. This fee is to be paid directly to FERT & Cie, through the Finances Sportives of the CHI-W. Please remember that horses arriving with ATA Carnets must be presented to the French customs and then at the Swiss border to the FERT & Cie's, Mr André Barthassat (Tel. +41(0)79 659 80 54). Departure from Switzerland: The same documents must be presented at the Swiss Customs' Office when horses leave the country. The re-exportation should take place no later than 7 days after the end of the event. In principle, there is no veterinary inspection at the border when entering the European Community (EC). The CHI-W veterinarian will provide a health certificate at the end of the event. Upon their arrival, each participant or their representative will immediately provide all details concerning their departure. All documents needed for entering Switzerland (ATA Carnet, customs permit, passports, health certificates) are to be handed over to the Veterinarian Commission when the horses are unloaded. Return and departure of horses at the close of the CHI-W Upon arrival, the competitors will be contacted by the representative of the Transport Commission, who will ask for their instructions. No changes can be made to the departure arrangements after 10 a.m. on Friday April 16, 2010 for riders and respectively 2 pm for the drivers. Should a change be really necessary, the Secretariat must be informed immediately (in writing) ­ to the attention of the Transport Commission ­ with no guarantee that the change will be successful. Extra costs are to be borne by the originator of the request. The time schedules for collecting the equipment from the stables and the departure of the horses will be indicated on the evening preceding departure. Their departure should take place at the latest Monday, the 19th April, 2010. The Committee reserves the right to refuse payment of any additional costs or consequences that could arise due to late information (later than Friday, April 16, 2010 at 10:00 am for riders, respectively 2 pm for the drivers) of changes in departure plans. As trucks are prohibited on Swiss roads on Sundays, special authorizations will be issued by the Swiss Automobiles and Navigation office at the request of the CHI-W Transport Commission, against payment of a minimum fee of CHF 150.-. The Treasurer will deduct the cost of the permit from the final account. Competitors wishing to obtain one of these permits must inform the Transport Commission on their arrival. In accordance with Swiss Law, trucks are prohibited on the roads on Sundays in Switzerland, exceptional authorisation will be hand out by the Swiss automobiles and navigation office.

18

The OC is informing you that you will have to also foresee fees for the customs agent (FERT) in case of problems with the ATA documents, cost of departure formalities and other problems. For example customs permits (non-valid ATA Carnets). In accordance with French Law, Trucks weighing more than 7 tons are not allowed to travel on Sunday, April 18, 2010. Drivers who intend to do so should obtain a special authorization (issued by préfectures départementales). This should be applied for prior to arrival in Switzerland, otherwise departure must take place on Monday morning.

D) SALE OF HORSES The registration of the owner and of the horse in the official list of entries shall fix the nationality of the latter for the whole period of the competition. The Secretariat, Transport Commission and the Customs Agent must be informed immediately of any transaction carried out during the competition. The sale, purchase or exchange of a horse shall eliminate ipso facto the advantages granted for the horse's return. Swiss buyers of foreign horses temporarily imported for the horse show shall be responsible for the deals they make, especially with regard to the formalities for final importation and for the payment procedures provided for in the contract. The OC accepts no responsibility for problems that could arise because the Secretariat was not informed of the sale or exchange of the horse in time. It especially draws the competitors' attention to the fact that horses temporarily imported for the horse show are not subject to the regular customs and health formalities. A straightforward, detailed report is drawn up by the competent services who issue a customs permit valid for a period of 30 days (but maximum 7 days after the close of the competition). In the case of a sale or exchange of horses, the customs regulations must be met and a veterinary check made, with the agreement of the OC, before the close of the horse show.

MISCELLANEOUS

1. OBJECTIONS/COMPLAINTS (Art. 167-171)

2. PRIZE-GIVING CEREMONY

The distribution of prizes, etc., will take place at the end of every Competition. The riders and the drivers are kindly requested to follow and respect the instructions given by the OC.

3. PRIZE MONEY: TAX AT SOURCE AND SOCIAL INSURANCE

I : TAX AT SOURCE We inform you that in a letter dated March 28th 1996, the Canton of Geneva stated its intention to apply the Federal Law regarding direct taxation and the Law of taxation at source. These legal provisions concern all competitors in the CHI-W (riders and drivers) who do not have a Swiss residence permit. This means that on net winnings, after deduction of living expenses indicated on the final statement of account at the end of the competition, a tax rate of 0 to 25% will be applied, according to the total balance. Our Sports Financial Service can provide additional information on this matter. An official declaration detailing the fiscal deduction will be given to each competitor concerned, together with his/her final statement. It will facilitate the recovery of this tax in his/her country of residence.

20

II : SOCIAL INSURANCE The activity of riders and drivers is considered as an independent activity by the Federal Insurance Office. As a consequence all earnings must be included and declared by all competitors in their independent revenue both in Switzerland and abroad. A: SWISS COMPETITORS All Athletes living in Switzerland, are requested to hand in a proof of their affiliation as an independent to an official compensation office of the OASI (Old Age and Survivors Insurance-AVS/AHV). In case you do not provide this document, the earnings of "Prize Money" exceeding the amount of CHF 2,200.- will be subject to contribution of the OASI (AVS/AHV). The CHI-W cannot bear the cost of an employers part, the applicable rate will be 13.61 ( example: if the prize money is CHF 10,000, an amount of CHF 1,361 will be deducted and a net amount of CHF 8,639 will be paid out to the competitor). B: FOREIGN ATHLETES For riders coming from a country which is part of the European Union (EU) or a country from the European Free Trade Association (EFTA), we kindly ask you to hand in the E 101 formula, which proves that you are subject to a social security system as an independent in your country. In case of not handing in the documents, we remind you that the possible earnings of "Prize Money" must be considered as an income of an independent activity and that it is your responsibility to declare this as such in your country. We draw your attention to the fact that the Swiss OASI could perform controls in your country. C: OTHER FOREIGN ATHLETES We remind you that the possible earnings of "Prize Money" must be considered as an income of an independent activity and that it is your responsibility to declare this as such in your country.

4. DISTRIBUTION OF PRIZES AND INDEMNITIES (Art. 130)

The distribution of the sum awarded to each class shall be fixed according to the importance of the class and the number of competitors in such a way as to reward at least one out of four competitors (Art. 129 FEI GR). If several horses are equally placed, the cash prizes due to them shall be added together. The sum of this total will be distributed in equal parts to these horses equally placed. Payment of the riders' winnings will be made by the Treasurer, Bureau des Finances sportives, 30 minutes after the end of the last class.

THE FEI CODE OF CONDUCT FOR THE WELFARE OF THE HORSE

The Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) expects all those involved in international equestrian sport to adhere to the FEI's Code of Conduct and to acknowledge and accept that at all times the welfare of the horse must be paramount and must never be subordinated to competitive or commercial influences. 1. At all stages during the preparation and training of competition horses, welfare must take precedence over all other demands. This includes good horse management, training methods, shoeing and tack, and transportation. Horses and competitors must be fit, competent and in good health before they are allowed to compete. This encompasses medication use, surgical procedures that threaten welfare or safety, pregnancy in mares and the misuse of aids. Events must not prejudice horse welfare. This involves paying careful attention to the competition areas, ground surfaces, weather conditions, stabling, site safety and fitness of the horse for onward travel after the event. Every effort must be made to ensure that horses receive proper attention after they have competed and that they are treated humanely when their competition careers are over. This covers proper veterinary care, competition injuries, euthanasia and retirement. The FEI urges all involved with the sport to attain the highest levels of education in their areas of expertise.
