Yemen officially joins WAHO

[02/February/2009]



MASCOT, Feb. 02 (Saba) - Yemen joined officially the World Arabian Horse Organization (WAHO) after voting for accepting Yemen's joining request in the WAHO's conference on Monday in Mascot of Oman .

The WAHO General Assembly conference which was attended by 400 members from 50 countries has approved joining Yemen to the WAHO after presenting the request by the Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports Hashid al-Hmar to the executive committee of WAHO to register the Arab origin horses in Yemen.

Yemen also reviewed the joining decision draft of Yemeni horses to be a new member in the WAHO.

The WAHO conference presented a recommendation that Yemen is qualified to join WAHO because of its ancient history with Arab horses, so its request was exceptionally accepted despite of the WAHO's already issued a decree to end joining application, Hashid said.

Hashid affirmed that Yemen is the Arab horses origin and the Yemeni Equestrian Federation and Camels cares for conserving the Arab horses dynasty .
