The International Horse Sports Confederation (IHSC) announced that Mr Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges, Chairman of the Asian Racing Federation (ARF), was unanimously elected President of the International Horse Sports Confederation (IHSC) at the organisation’s virtual General Assembly on 22 April 2022.
The IHSC was created in 2013, when the Fédération Equestre International (FEI) and the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities (IFHA) joined forces to create the first formal vehicle for co-operation between the world’s leading bodies for equestrian sport. The Presidency of the IHSC rotates between the founding members.
As the third President of the IHSC, Mr Engelbrecht-Bresges succeeds FEI President Ingmar De Vos who held the position from 2019 to 2022, and IFHA Chairman Emeritus Louis Romanet who led the IHSC from 2017 to 2019. He will be supported by Mr Ingmar De Vos, who takes over as IHSC Vice-President.
