I heard today in the Portuguese television that Infanta Pilar, president international equestre, is happy because the tournaments itself go to carry out in Hong Kong. Do you know something about this subject?

the tournaments will take place in HK instead of Beijing, China because in Beijing they don't have the experience and they have sanitary problems in mainland china that makes it difficult for the horses or sth....

here's an article from yahoo

Beijing 2008 Olympic events to be held in Hong Kong for well-being of horses



Equestrian events for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games will be held in Hong Kong based on the "best interests of the competition and the well-being of the horses," the International Olympic Committee announced Friday.

The agreement finalizes Beijing's push to have the equestrian competition moved from the Chinese capital.

"We are confident there will be a wonderful Olympic equestrian competition in Hong Kong," said IOC Coordination Commission chairman Hein Verbruggen, who announced the switch during IOC meetings in Singapore.

"The agreement means the locations for all Beijing 2008 competitions have now been finalized, allowing progress in all areas of Games preparation."

The international equestrian federation had originally objected to the move, but accepted the decision after the Beijing organizing committee, BOCOG, made guarantees regarding the venue.

FEI president Infanta Dona Pilar said BOCOG had assured the federation of the best conditions for riders and horses in Hong Kong.



"This has always been our main objective. We are confident that BOCOG and Hong Kong will ensure the stage is set for excellent equestrian competition in Hong Kong."

The Chinese organizers have lobbied hard for the switch, saying 17 equine diseases are prevalent in Beijing and other mainland Chinese cities.

BOCOG executive vice president Wang Wei said he was delighted the best possible solution had been reached.

"We are convinced that the Hong Kong venue will enhance the quality and the excitement of the Games in 2008. BOCOG will work to ensure the athletes, officials, media and spectators in Hong Kong know that they are an integral part of the Beijing Games. When Melbourne hosted the 1956 Olympics, equestrian events were held in Sweden because of strict quarantine restrictions in Australia.

HRH Infanta Margarita will preside today, in Santander , over the ceremony of the prize CERMI Cantabria, that bears her name. The act will take place at six o’clock in the afternoon, at the Royal Hotel.

The Prize CERMI Cantabria S.A.R. Infanta Doña Margarita de Borbón y Borbón was instituted last year, with the aim of recognizing Cantabrian institutions, for their activity in the help of handicapped people.

http://www.lavanguardia.es/web/20050...191029899.html

Although some years ago a judge forced Doña Pilar de Borbón to demolish her Mallorcan house, the sister of the King continues spending the summer in the island, along with some of her children and grandchildren. Yesterday, with his son Bruno and her daughter-in-law Bárbara, she watched the sailboats that are competing in the regatta Count of Barcelona, which is celebrated every year, in honour and memory of Don Juan de Borbón.

Doña Pilar, who turned 69 years old, last July 30th, used to spend the summer in a Mallorcan small house in Palma, located in front of Porto Pi, just a few meters far from Marivent. But one day, the proprietor of the house located behind Doña Pilar’s appealed for a city-planning demand, alleging that the eldest sister of the King had raised the house a few meters, preventing his views over the sea. Doña Pilar did not contest, so that nobody thought that she was receiving a favoured treatment, in case of winning the cause, and decided to demolish not only a part, but the whole house. The peculiar thing of this story is that the very same neighbour, who appealed the judiciary demand, bought that land and constructed there a new building, which is far taller than the primitive house. And there it is the new building, located in a privileged zone, without anybody wondering what interest had motivated the demolition order that Doña Pilar so promptly accepted.

Since then, the sister of the King (after a couple of summers absent from Mallorca, to assimilate the whole issue) spends the summer in a calm, retired urbanization of Palma. She lives an independent life from the one of his illustrious relatives and usually does not meet them on board of the Fortuna, like other royal relatives do. In that attitude, she resembles her father very much, since Don Juan used to arrive almost all the summers in Palma, and preferred to remain on board of his sailboat, the Giralda, anchored in the Clube de Mar, instead of settling down in Marivent. Then in the evening, the Count of Barcelona used to receive his friends, and repeated the ritual of dry martini, which he enjoyed even when the disease prevented him to drink. The Giralda, (which the royal family donated to the Navy, after the death of Don Juan) is one of those old sailboats, which resist the attacks and storms, just like some people with a more difficult life than what it apparently seems.
