It is estimated that on the first day over seventy horses will go ‘under the hammer’ of an experienced Auctioneer engaged to stage the event. The second day of the Festival will see a display of Arabian horse racing at the new racetrack built at the Al Khalediah Farm complex. The racetrack has a dirt surface and is 1900 m in circumference with full race day facilities.
The Arabian Horse Show, on days three and four, is affiliated with the European Commission of Arab Horse Organizations (ECAHO), and its KSA representative, the King AbdulAziz Arabian Horse Centre in Dirab, will oversee the implementation of international rules and standards. A selection of international judges registered with ECAHO will preside over the show, in conjunction with other select officials and registered personnel. The horse show is expected to attract entries from farms from all around the world. Valuable prizes will be on offer for all class winners, with major prizes for the Championship winners.
The entire Festival is expected to be attended by Their Royal Highnesses, Crown Princes, Sheikhs, Ambassadors, Consul Generals, Dignitaries, and key persons in the business community across the Gulf Region. In addition to these guests, many owners, breeders, key association members, international media representatives, and celebrities will be invited to attend.
Closing date for entries is the 10th of December.
