Khalid bin Abdullah Appointed Honourary Vice President of FEI

Ingmar De Vos, vice president of the International Federation for Equestrian Sports – Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) rewarded the efforts of Shaikh Khalid bin Abdullah Al Khalifa during his tenure as president of the Seventh Equestrian Group (the Arab Group) which operates under the umbrella of the FEI by appointing him as the honourary vice president of the federation. This came during the General Assembly of the FEI which is taking place in Russia’s capital Moscow.

Also member of the executive office of the FEI, Shaikh Khalid bin Abdullah has held several posts in the federation since 2006, including being the president of the Seventh Equestrian Group which represents the Arab states who are members in the federation from 2010 until this year. He was also the vice president of the federation since 2014.

De Vos gifted Shaikh Khalid a souvenir and the honourary vice president badge, becoming the first Arab personality to occupy this position.  From his side, Shaikh Khalid bin Abdullah expressed his happiness for the confidence shown by the federation in him, expressing pride at delivering an important “Achievement for the Kingdom of Bahrain”.

“This accomplishment wouldn’t have been possible without the support of HM King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, the King of the Kingdom of Bahrain, HRH the Prime Minister and HRH the Crown Prince as well as HH Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa to the horse equestrian and endurance sports,” he pointed out.
