Katara International Arabian Horse Festival has just taken off. This comparison with the take-off of a jet or F1 is most justified in this case. Even the previous Festival was characterized by extraordinary care and elegance, but the event organized this year, according to the organizers’ assumption, is to be even more perfect, bigger, more luxurious and simply more beautiful.
The still young countries of the Persian Gulf compete with each other in many fields, but in the field of breeding and showing Arabian horses, the competition is full of seriousness and commitment, consistent with the importance of this branch of activity, which was given to it by the Arabs, in this case the Qatari people.
The setting of the show is in extremely good taste, full of splendor and glitz. However, it is not only the perfect organization visible from the very beginning, not only the decor and setting, but also the reference and respect for the discovered and cultivated tradition.
Thus, the Arabian horse in Qatar is a national matter and therefore there will be no compromises in the organization of probably the largest and the most important Arabian Horse Festival in this part of the world; the best horses, the best presenters, the best exhibitors and the most important industry media reporting this event. They do everything to impress the world and show what they have.
That is why Katara is not so much a show, but a series of events that accompany it in the Katara Cultural Village. KIAHF manages the time and place of each guest; in line with your wallet, on the eve of the Festival, at the opening of the pre-auction exhibition entitled “Arabian Horses in Art”, you can prepare for the auction of works exhibited there; prices, as befits great Arabians, are high!
The show itself, aimed at selecting the best horse in a given class, should probably satisfy every Arabian enthusiast. Industry stands are a nice addition, most often of reputable companies, operating strictly in the field of horse breeding. The stands gathered on the show avenue were placed in climatic tents, just like straight from the desert. Arab winter on display; almost 30 degrees Celsius. Despite the cold, it should be hot.
