Malaysia is set to host the 2008 FEI World Endurance Championship in Terengganu, November 6-9.
The Malaysia WEC Website has been updated, including an Organizing Committee page for Federations, Registrations and general information
A brief account of the WEC in Malaysia:
His Majesty Seri Paduka Baginda Yang Dipertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan (King of Malaysia), an endurance riding enthusiast himself, went to France in 2005 with the Equestrian Association of Malaysia (EAM) to bid for the FEI World Endurance Championship to be held in Malaysia.
Despite bidding against other better established endurance nations, Malaysia was conditionally granted the opportunity to host the FEI World Endurance Championship 2008.
Following this sanction, two trial events were arranged to evaluate the feasibility of holding the World Championship in a country of a tropical climate for the first time ever. The first trial was held in 2006 for Malaysian horses and the second in 2007 for international horses. The precondition for the trials was a minimum completion rate of 40%.
In 2006 and 2007, encouraging completion rates of 56% and 67% were achieved for each respective year.
The 2008 World Championship promises to be an exciting and competitive event.
Many esteemed international Endurance riders will be competing in the WEC in Terengganu this year along with top Malaysian Riders.
Some of the expected participating Countries are;
9. Czech Republic
12. Great Britain
23. New Zealand
30. Saudi Arabia
33. United Arab Emirates (UAE)
