2022 Jordan Conference

2022 WAHO Conference – Jordan

The 2022 WAHO Jordan Conference held in October in Amman, Jordan, was a very successful event and greatly enjoyed by all participants.

Our heartfelt thanks are extended to our hosts at the Royal Jordanian Equestrian Federation , who definitely went the extra mile to ensure everyone had a wonderful time from the moment they arrived until their day of departure.  Apart from the business side of the Conference, comprising the WAHO World Registrars Meeting and the WAHO General Assembly with excellent Guest Speakers, there was a wealth of other activities to enjoy, from social events, horse parades and stud farm visits to a variety of tourism opportunities.

The 2022 WAHO Jordan Conference, hosted by the Royal Jordanian Equestrian Federation, under the patronage of His Majesty King Abdullah II, was a great success.  The friendly hospitality and warmth of our hosts made the whole event very special.  The WAHO World Registrars Meeting was both interesting and productive, and the WAHO General Assembly included some very interesting talks from a variety of Guest Speakers.  Conference participants also had the chance to tour some of Jordan’s famous historical sites.

The highlights for many of us were the chance to see the rescued animals at the Al Ma’wa sanctuary for wildlife, and the  wonderful visit to the Royal Jordanian State Stud.  A full report will be published here soon, and there will also be reports in various magazines both online and in print.  We sincerely thank our hosts and all those whose hard work and team effort made the 2022 WAHO Jordan Conference such a memorable and enjoyable event.
