“It’s the Hollywood of the Equestrian world” are the words Olympic show jumper Pius Schwizer used to describe CHI AL SHAQAB, a dazzling Equestrian show held in Doha.
“CHI” stands for Concours Hippique International or international equestrian competition awarded by the FEI, to only four competitions worldwide. The three magic letters make all the difference in the prestigious equestrian world. It is a title of nobility, something rare that does come not easy. Organizers crave for this title while riders covet winning at a show of this stature.
There are exceptional facilities for horses, riders, grooms, owners etc. From air conditioned stables to the very best surfaces, vast arenas, gallop tracks, and an extensive veterinary centre. There is an indoor arena where the roof can peel back – less like Wimbledon centre court, more like NASA space centre.
First organized in 2013, CHI AL SHAQAB has evolved to become a signature event for Al Shaqab and one of the highlights on the world’s equestrian calendar. A spectacular showcase of the world’s top ranking riders in three Olympic equestrian disciplines of Showjumping, Dressage and Para-Dressage, the competition is one of five CHI events worldwide BUT the only one of its kind in the Middle East and Asia.
In addition to the competition, for the duration of both events (28 Feb – 9 Mar 2019) Al Shaqab is also offering 10 days of fun and entertainment with interactive activities that will cater to every member of the family. A specially designed festival area will feature an entertainment zone providing a variety of fun-filled activities including virtual reality sets, interactive video games, horse simulator, arts and crafts and the ever popular, pony rides. An array of food and beverage stands will be offering an incredible assortment of cuisines and beverages to suit every palate.
Come and support your fellow countrymen in their quest for glory at the competitions.
Enjoy the festive atmosphere and activities in the Festival Area.
