On October 26, 1996, The Equestrian Sports Federation of Azerbaijan Republic was established.
Drastic changes in the activity of Equestrian Federation started after March 5, 2009. That day, based on the results of votes following the report meeting of National Olympic Committee a new board of Federation was voted upon and Mr. Elchin Guliyev was elected as the president of the Federation. Little later, the new charter of the Federation was adopted. The name of the Federation was changed to become Equestrian Federation of Azerbaijan Republic (EFAR). Election of the new management defined a new course of development in the equestrian sport of our country. EFAR undertook serious missions to develop not only the equestrian sport, but also both non-sport and non-Olympic disciplines, including the development of national equestrian.
