Princess Haya and the FEI

From Khaleej Times

Princess Haya vies for equestrian presidency
(AFP)

7 August 2005



AMMAN - Princess Haya, wife of Dubai Crown Prince Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, will run for the presidency of the International Equestrian Federation (FEI), she told AFP on Sunday.

A keen athlete with a passion for riding, the 31-year-old Jordanian princess represented Jordan at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games - the first Arab woman to do so - competing in show jumping.

In a phone interview from London where she is currently, Princess Haya said she “will run in April for the presidency” of the FEI in the hope of promoting and revitalising the sport across the globe “through a modern and efficient world-class body”.

“Ensuring that the Federation is fully transparent and works in accordance with sound and modern financial systems is of utmost importance to me, and imperative for the development and growth of the equestrian sport internationally,” she said.

Princess Haya has taken part in several international competitions, representing Jordan at Sydney 2000 and at the World Championships in Jerez 2002. She recently took part in the Dubai 2005 World Endurance Championship and is a member of the honorary committee of the SpanishRidingSchool.

The princess has represented Jordan in the FEI General Assembly and was chairperson of the Middle East and Western Asian sub-group from 1992-1996.

“I see equestrianism as a traditional sport with a modern future,” the princess - who is daughter of the late King Hussein - said.

Princess Haya is also a member of the International Board of Directors of Right to Play, an athlete-driven organization dedicated to bringing sports and recreation to children affected by war, poverty disease and illness.

I think that it's wonderful that Princess Haya is running for Presidency. She adores the sport and I think it would be a wonderful thing for her to do with her time.

Does anyone know anything about the International Equestrian Federation and how their presidents are chosen?

PRINCESS HAYA RIDING HIGH AFTER ELECTION VICTORY

It would appear Zara Phillips isn't the only pretty royal making an impression on the world of horsemanship, as Jordan's Princess Haya has been elected president of the International Federation for Equestrian Sport.

King Abdullah's half-sister, who has been riding internationally since the age of 13, has been entrusted to oversee the work of the IFE for the next four years. The popular royal, who turns 32 on Wednesday, brings many years of experience to her new role.

The princess has competed for her country at numerous events, including the 2000 Sydney Olympics and the 2002 World Equestrian Games, and, having represented Jordan at the IFE's general assembly on several occasions, she also knows a thing or two about the politics involved in running the organisation.

I think Laraib meant the Ambassador position instead of the FEI position, but I could be wrong. Besides, Angelina already is a UN ambassador. Happy 32nd birthday, Princess Haya.

She looks sure of herself more than anytime before. This is good to see.

I love her dress, the one she wore for the gala dinner, but I don't think women that are her height should wear long dresses. I think if it had stopped mid calf, it would have looked better on her.
