Princess Haya was a wild card to the olympics and she did very badly. The Olympics are full of wild cards. How can sport develop and be global unless countries which aren't currently winning compete and begin by this enthusiasm to do better? That is also what Haya is meant to stand for on the FEI. Developing the sport past its normal boundaries and countries. The sport was very USA and Europe limited.

Well that's the idealogy anyway, personally think Haya has been a disappointment. She overstates the olympic thing and has been a poor leader of the FEI IMO. She is not very democratic IMO. The vote on doping list was lost because people were not given time to look at it properly.

But I am not sure she won't win again but will have to get two thirds? I heard she was the strongest candidate. It is one nation vote isn't it and the other two candidates split the europe vote. Isn't that why she is out in the Carribean?

Princess Haya faces opposition in approaching FEI election

An apparent lack of confidence in Princess Haya among European federations has led two senior figures to oppose her bid for re-election as president of the FEI, horse sport's international governing body.

The Princess must win a two-thirds majority of 133 member federation votes.

Princess Haya faces opposition in approaching FEI election - Equestrian news, equine news, horse news - Horse & Hound

{The key points in this article is senior officials and the 133 members which are primaryly British members}.

Princess Haya to face European challenge for FEI President

May 23 - Princess Haya's postion as President of the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) is to be challenged later this year by Sweden's Sven Holmberg and Holland's Henk Rottinghuis, a sign of the lack of confidence among leading European nations in her leadership.

It will be the first time that a President has ever faced a challenge when standing for re-election.

{We must remember this sport is dominated by the British, its not truly International}.

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.
The olympics is a big competition, obviousley you are going to have people who will do bad and good, Haya was someone who didnt do too good. We learn from our mistakes.
Must also remember when competing with other big riders, its not that easy. She might of gotten her olympic place as she was choosen from a few of the rgion but comprting with highly pro's, its not that easy.

The people who vote on her re-election are the 133 national federations who are listed as being able to vote. That is 133 different countries. See list of countries on FEI website. Link: http://www.fei.org/fei-members/national-federations

Haya was already supported in her nominations by South American and Middle East countries. Trinidad, Bermuda and Barbados all have a vote. That is why she was there canvassing. I don't suspect she expects to get the US or European vote.

Jordanian princess visits equestrian centre

...When asked which posed the bigger challenge, being a competitive rider or an administrator, Princess Haya answered without a moment’s hesitation.
“The administration by far,” she laughed.
Princess Haya said while equestrian sport has a very strong European base; one of her main goals is to spread the sport around the globe...

Jordan Princess impressed with Barbados

...She also noted that a development task force had been set up within the FEI to see how they could assist smaller nations...

Thank you for additional pictures. She has been quite active for the FEI lately, not sure if its because the voting coming up soon but I have not recalled her visiting so many places in a row.
She looks quite happy in many of the pictures & its great seeing her attending horse related events in different countries.
