H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and UAE Minister of Finance, yesterday opened the 12th Dubai International Arabian Horse Championship and the 11th Dubai International Horse Fair, which are taking place at Dubai World Trade Centre, DWTC, until 21st March.

"We thank Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and UAE Minister of Finance, for their continued patronage and support of the Dubai International Arabian Horse Championship and Dubai International Horse Fair," said Ziad Abdullah Galadari, Chairman of the Higher Organising Committee of the event.

"Dubai, and the Middle East, is rapidly growing in stature as a global destination for a range of equine events that appeal to industry stalwarts, experts, horse enthusiasts and the general public. These events are also unrivalled platforms to demonstrate the beauty, agility and impressive lineage of thoroughbred Arabian breeds," continued Galadari.

Dubai International Horse Fair offers a variety of international equine products, services, equipment and technology for horse owners, breeders and equine professionals in the Middle East.

Companies and brands exhibiting a range of products and services to the expanding equine industry in the Middle East include Ajman Stud, Al Hawajer Stud, Dubai Arabian Stud, Dubai Equine Hospital, Equivance, Jebel Ali Racecourse, Royal Cavalry and Shadwell Stud among others.

The general public will have the opportunity to witness the fast-paced and thrilling Horse Auction which returns this year. More than 100 magnificent Arabian thoroughbreds from local studs will be available for viewing, bidding and buying on Saturday, 21st March, at 12pm.

The popular Art Gallery specialising in equestrian works also makes a comeback this year. The gallery gathers established global artists under one roof where they will unveil their horse-inspired sculptures and paintings to art connoisseurs from across the region.

Dressage, pony show jumping, gymkhana and Spanish horse performances will also feature at the show, where horse aficionados and the general public can experience riders' masterful routines.

Polo demonstrations by the Al Habtoor Polo Club will be held on 19th and 20th March. In addition, a polo class will be held to demonstrate the elegance and specialised skills required to play the sport. - Emirates News Agency, WAM –
