WEG Endurance: Apologetic Statement from Saeed Al Tayer, UAE Chef de Mission

“The UAE team is thrilled to have won the Endurance team gold medal at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games and it was a huge honour for the four team members to be presented with their gold medals by HRH Princess Haya, the President of the FEI.

Unfortunately, due to a mis-communication, the team members did not attend the post-medal press conference and for that we apologize. We would have been honored to speak to the media, but we were genuinely unaware that this was standard protocol.

Thanks to the FEI the sport of Endurance has been elevated enormously in the UAE and the proof of that is the gold medal that the team has won here in Kentucky. We have a special love for the State of Kentucky and think of it as a home from home.”
