HRH Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein Fédération Equestre Internationale Avenue de Rumine 37 1005 Lausanne Switzerland We, the undersigned, ask that you reconsider the decision to disqualify McLain Ward and Sapphire from the Rolex FEI World Cup Final. We understand that the rules and the protocols allow for disqualification at any stage on welfare grounds. We are also committed to protecting the welfare of the horse and the integrity of the sport. We believe there should be an appeal possible for McLain Ward to dispute the disqualification, where further medical examination could determine if Sapphire is fit to continue with the competition. It is our sincerest hope that this petition will make you reconsider McLain Ward's disqualification in the best interest of the horse, the sport and the riders. By affixing my signature below, I would respectfully ask the Federation Equestre Internationale to review this petition, the support it shows, and reconsider the disqualification of McLain Ward's and Sapphire.
