Dutch Federation Lodges A Claim with the FEI

A detailed interview of Australian journalist Chris Hector with Danish five-star judge Leif Törnblad has angered the Dutch equestrian federation KNHS so much that they have lodged a claim with the FEI, so horses.nl reports. In the interview Törnblad discusses the Dutch riding style that has often been criticised. Maarten van der Heijden, sports director of the KNHS told horses.nl that he expected ethical standards as well as independent and objective judgement from a five-star judge. Törnblad’s comments had proved this not to be the case. You can read the whole interview here.
