The French health authorities, veterinarians and members of the Mondial du Lion organizing committee inform you that each horse entering the site must:

  • Be in possession of a valid FEI passport and identification booklet
  • Be up to date with their flu vaccinations, rhinopneumonitis vaccine is now an obligation (same for any other horse „accompanying” a participating horse)
  • Temperature of the horses – Self-Certification Form: The FEI veterinary regulations require that the „Self-Certification Form” and the temperature of horses participating in international competitions be entered via the FEI Horse App.

For each horse, you must therefore fill in:

  • Two daily temperature readings for the 3 days prior to the horse’s arrival at the competition site and for the duration of the horse’s presence at the competition site.
  • The „Self-Certification Form” must be completed within 24 hours of the horse’s arrival at the competition site.

Reminder of the procedure:

  • Log on to the FEI Horse App (the application must be updated)
  • Choose the horse or horses concerned in the „My Horses” tab
  • Open the „Horse Health” tab and click on „Temperature
  • Fill in the temperatures and the time of each reading

We advise you to fill in the temperatures of all horses likely to participate in the competition in case of a change of horse.

As of 1 July 2022, official veterinarians use electronic signature of certificates. The eCS can be presented in printed or dematerialised form. If the operator does not print the certificate, he must ensure that the certificate can be shown in paperless form to anyone requesting it.
