@ Scooter - she voted herself out when she stopped the horse from racing. That horse may have been injured, but I'm sure his trainer as well as owner knew it. That was her learning curve of failing to play politics... That lesson will cost her.

I know some viewed love the horses...however, these raise are about money as well as power, and NO one wants to be taken out of game!

This year 2010 is a good time to watch her, she is also, coming up on her third year with the UN...she's been talking so much smack about them...they may see her go. The funny thing is most of it is true, however her deliver of the message is just tacky.

Crowning glory: Princess Haya of Jordan - Times Online

This is an old article and interview (2008). Haya stated back then that she wished to compete at London 2012 for Jordan. Does anyone know if this will finally happen? Is she training or there's no time now due to her many other obligations and duties?

Wasn't she just having a wishful moment in that interview? I am sure should would like to go, but this is the Olympics. IMO to compete in the olympics she would have to be competing regularly and get a ranking. This is not a train and turn up event and there are limited spots. For P Haya to get a place above someone else who has been competiting regularly and training hard would be very bad PR for her.

The conflict with her proposed second term as FEI President is another huge issue. The FEI are involved in all stages of the Olympic preparations. She'd have to step aside from the main event of the FEI and all the events she would need to compete in. How would that work?

I know, I had my doubts from the first moment I read it. It's highly unlikely, if not impossible IMO. Anyway, thanks for your reply Kerry!

I completely agree with you. It would be ridiculous.

Facing the facts...

I would agree she was just talking out loud...I could be mistaken, but its my understanding that she NEVER completed any of her races... Either she is injured or its the horse....

I could be wrong...Or maybe I'm talking out loud...LOL

Do you mean that she never competed and did well in a competition?

I was referring to her never completing or finishing a race, let alone have done well in a competition? Once again, I could be wrong and have no objections to being corrected. Thanks :-)

I dont know how good she was but she must of been good to qualify for the olympics. She wouldve had to compete in a few competions and win the top few places.
As for now, there has been no news of her competing in any competion for her to qualify for 2012.

I really wish her highness the best of luck in the coming elections ; knowing that others mentioned her failure or mistakes in some aspects but sure she has her advisers or consultants whom had some certain of vision for this sport , they might be wrong but at least elections encourages new faces and experiences that helps to make better future so I am sure Haya is doing her best ..

Her choices were for the welfare of the horses but the trainers/riders were not too happy since they did not benefit from the rules.
She's been working hard for a better sport and I do agree with the changes made ex, the olympics removing/changing one of the jumps, was for horse & rider saftey and there was a big debate on how she interferred.

Haya's qualification was a bit shady, so to say. I cant provide any link but I recall that the rules were "interpreted" in her favour. It was a political decision too since Jordan did not have any global sports figures at the time, with the Kings' daughter competing there was a lot of media coverage.

At that time Haya trained in Germany and I recall that her level of riding was average although she was very ambitious; she was nowhere near the world class level of the German equipe.

In Sydney, Haya fell off her horse twice, listing her at the end of the competitor field. But as usual with Haya, she is able to get her own message across. Yes, she is an olympic rider, but her wording in interviews makes people rather think that she won a gold medal for Jordan and not landed on her backside.

Haya flirting with competing again is just fishing for compliments or attention - I cant seriously see her making a return as a competitor. Being qualified for Jordan is not the problem but the high chance of being listed at the very end of the olympic field, again, might well put her off.

I personally dont think she will be reelected, one reason she got the job was her background (her husband's money) but she also brought along a lot of controversy and discord.

The FEI will need a calm president who doesnt polarise that much and doesnt get into conflict of interest (eg her husband's doping case) as easily as Haya.

^ Thanks for the insight view, Duke! What can I say? Besides, I never followed her 'olympic career'... But if that's true, then I'm quite shocked. How can they fool the people (or themselves) without any guilt!?

I wouldn't say she had much of an "Olympic career" the media did attack her, for not being prepared physically for the race; however, they also masked those comments with the recent death of her father. The question will never be answered, if she was a good racer or not mentally prepared because of her father. IMO she was not prepared.... After that race she completed in other things but, never winning falling or stopping saying she was having horse difficulties...what ever...People wanted her to be successful...she just didn't deliver.

Getting re-elected...won't happen. She ran a campaign and use to talk about DRUG-FREE racing..how others failedto (previous FEI presidents) stop riders and owners from giving the horses drugs. And what happend to her personally, well first it was hubby and son. FEI is very protective of its reputation. I have a good friend who says here in US, the derby tickets sell out day one...and that it was a "exclusive club".
