IJRC Director Eleonora Ottaviani on the election for the 2018- 2022 FEI Athlete Representative: “It is the riders’ responsibility to vote”

                The voting phase for the 2018-2022 FEI Athlete Representative for the  discipline of jumping is open, and the International Jumping Riders Club (IJRC) is urging riders to get involved and use their right to vote.
