The International Equestrian Federation proclaimed Al Yahyai the winner after the elections were conducted virtually today where he won 10 votes.

“The UAE's election to the presidency of the International Equestrian Federation's Regional Group 7 represents a valuable addition to the country's track record in the equestrian sport and promotes the UAE's success in grooming qualified cadres capable of assuming leading positions in international organisations,” said Major General Dr. Ahmed Nasser Al Raisi, President of the Emirates Equestrian and Racing Federation.
