Final Answer to Come Soon
Hey all, this new FEI Qualifications list had me all freaked out, along with lots of other people, so I went and made a few charts to simplify it for myself. The changes are minimal, and most of them simply add another CIC to the requirements for a CCI.

However, the USEF doesn't have that set yet, and they have to nail something down in order to apply these FEI additions.
SO, the discussion will begin on Thursday, at the Convention, and by Monday of next week we should have a press release from our National Federations which tells you how this applies to US riders and horses. And, of course, I'll be making more charts and writing it dummy style for EN.
Hope this makes some of you take deeper breaths and allays some fears!
