HH The Amir’s Sword, a prestigious equestrian competition jointly organised by Qatar Equestrian Federation (QEF) and Al Shaqab, a member of Qatar Foundation, will take place from February 18 to 20, at QEF’s Indoor and Outdoor Arenas.
It will open on the first day, with the Future Riders category, followed by showjumping and dressage over the remaining two days of the event.
Staying true to Qatar’s vision to promote sports among the country’s youth, the category of Future Riders specifically caters for children aged six and above.
The event showjumping category classifications of Small, Medium and Big Tours refer to the height of the horses competing, while the dressage categories of Level 1 Medium and Level 2 Prelim refer to the complexity of the movements performed by the combinations of horse and rider.
Hamad bin Abdulrahman al-Attiyah, President of Qatar Equestrian Federation & Modern Pentathlon, said: “As organisers, we have always been very happy with the high quality of this event, and the level of competition it delivers. It has always been our aim to achieve the very best for The Amir’s Sword, and we are glad that we have done that, and will continue to strive to achieve this. Qatar has a rich and proud equestrian heritage, and HH The Amir’s Sword bears testament to this.”
Ministry of Public Health’s Covid-19 precautionary measures will be strictly enforced to ensure the safety and well-being of participants, equestrian fans, and all who are involved with the three-day event.
