THE Cambodian Country Club and Hagar Catering and Facilities Management
jointly celebrated the national equestrian team last week which
returned with a clutch of ribbons from the Christmas Jumping
Competition in Thailand.

A gathering of media personnel,
sponsors of the Cambodian Equestrian Federation and some staunch
supporters hailed the performances of the three-member team as a great
leap for the sport in the Kingdom.

“This was our way of
expressing our joy over the achievements of our national team and also
to thank our sponsors like Hagar, Horse Ware, Comin Khmer and Property
Care Services for their unwavering support,” said Federation Technical
Director Soraya Ourrais.

“We were quite honoured to have members
of the media alongside our sponsors and our team members. It was a
memorable occasion for the CEF.”

The CEF Secretary General Phillip Garcia emphasised the historical significance of the team’s Thailand visit.

“This
is the first time since the 1956 Melbourne Olympics that a Cambodian
equestrian team had taken part in an international event,” he said.

“Our
success in Thailand and the aptitude of the team members will certainly
lead us to a reintegration with the international community.

“This year’s SEA Games in Indonesia is well within our sights,” he added.
