A DELEGATION from the Bahrain Royal Equestrian and Endurance Federation left yesterday for Malaysia to attend the International Equestrian Federation's (FEI) general assembly meetings.
The delegation consists of federation's second vice-president Shaikh Khalid bin Abdulla Al Khalifa and director Haider Al Zo'bi. The meetings will conclude on Tuesday.
At the meeting, a new FEI president will be announced from a list of three officials representing Jordan, Greece and Denmark.
The schedule of the World Showjumping Champion-ship is also to be confirmed at the meeting. Two Arab riders - Saudi Arabian duo Ramzi Al Duhami and Abdulla Al Sharbatli - have already booked berths in this prestigious event after taking the top two positions in the Arab League qualifier.
Bahrain is one of many countries interested to host the next year's general assembly meeting of the FEI which has around 120 countries taking part in its programmes.
