    it wasn't done according to the bylaws so may not be legally valid.

    Horse and Hound so far has the most up to date coverage. Fish around on the other links. Princess Haya just rejected calls for a recount apparently.

    FEI president Princess Haya refuses to allow a re-vote on bute


    Abigail Butcher, H&H head of news, in Denmark
    19 November, 2009

    Britain's and Ireland's calls for a re-vote on the decision to allow bute in competition have been dismissed.


    Damian McDonald chief executive of Horse Sport Ireland has questioned this afternoon whether delegates at the FEI general assembly understood fully what they were voting for.

    "On 13 November it was stated by the FEI that we would get a choice between the 'progressive list' and a list legally called the '20 October list'," he said.

    "But this morning we were asked to vote on 'progressive list' and 'current list', and the current list we had until now is very different from the list of 20 October."

    He urged to allow a revote to be absolutely certain that federations were clear on what they were voting for, a call backed up by British Equestrian Federation (BEF) chairman Keith Taylor.

    "I suggest that if there is sufficient doubt in the room that a vote should be retaken," said Mr Taylor.

    But FEI president Princess Haya refused to allow a re-vote, claiming a number of delegates had already left the assembly. Before they left, the Princess said they had told her of their concern that the FEI might backtrack on the decision taken this morning.

    "The vote has been taken," said Princess Haya. "We will not take it again."
    German equestrian federation president Breido Graf zu Rantzau warned: "How can we leave Copenhagen like this? It divides the FEI."

    It does indeed seem to have been done against the bylaws (clear violation of the notice provisions), but I'd just as soon let it stand if a lot of reps have left already, I think HRH makes a good call here.

    that people have left is a separate issue. the revote issue is a matter of alleged confusion over which list they were voting for. the larger issue is that no vote should have occurred to begin with so even a revote would be invalid. a lot easier, or at least a first step, to immediately call for a revote than it is to tackle the bigger problem

    Correct, but the "Elvis has left the building" justification is the one HRH used!

    lol.

    so now will the Euro feds have the balls to take the appropriate action, or will they just follow polo's lead and actually secede?

    Hilarious double talk.

    Could not find what the legal dosing is?

    I think it's going to be 1 gram not within twelve hours of competition.

    From Horse and Hound:

    "The FEI has set the level to allow for a small single dose of one of the three non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to be given 24 hours before a competition. The doses have been set to ease muscle stiffness but, supposedly, not to mask a problem such as arthritis."

    This level will not mask anything, but will help a few short-term issues.

    In the “new millenium,” we abide by our organisation’s constitution. We do not circumvent statutory rights of voting stakeholders, no matter how badly we want new drug rules. Good governance first; everything else follows from that.

    Being deliberately denied the information a month in advance as required by the Statutes, by a power mad president and her accomplices, is not modern, not "snoozing." And that's before you even get into the ever-present potential question of who might have gotten what at the last minute in exchange for their vote.

    Who was denied this information? Or, were they just not paying attention?
