ABU DHABI, 24th July, 2022 (WAM) — The Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian (ADIHEX) has announced that it will introducing the ADIHEX 2022 Arabian Horses Auction – Speed Races as the newest feature in its upcoming edition, ADIHEX 2022.

ADIHEX 2022 will see the participation of a wide range of regional companies specialised in the manufacture of riding supplies, trailers, horse boxes, horseshoes, saddles, horse bridles, nutritional supplements and feed, horse riding clothes and shoes, as well as equestrian skills schools. This is in addition to special features that attract horse lovers of all age groups.

The Emirates Arabian Horse Society (EAHS) participates annually in ADIHEX, and is considered a key and active partner in the features and activities of this important sector. In cooperation with the Emirates Falconers Club, the EAHS will participate this year in organising Arabian Horses Auction – Speed Races, where about 20 to 30 horses will be auctioned by Arabian horse breeders and owners in addition to those interested in acquiring elite flat race horses.

During the exhibition, the EAHS will organise several educational lectures on the equestrian sector platform revolving around EAHS’ registration services, the horse feeding system, the conditions for registering the Arabian horses, and the characteristics of the Desert Arabian horses.

The EAHS pavilion at ADIHEX will showcase the chronology of its history and origins, the first Arabian Horses Electronic Studbook in the Middle East, the EAHS’ services, a small museum of its most prominent collection, statistics for breeders, owners and stables of Arab horses registered in the UAE, a photo gallery of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, a chronological photo gallery of the purebred Arabian horse beauty contests, and rare heritage articles on the Arabian horses, in addition to a display screen of the purebred Arabian horse contests organised and supervised by the EAHS over the past seasons, small platforms for displaying horse saddles, and a corner for live Arabian horse drawing sessions.

The upcoming edition of ADIHEX will witness a wide regional and international participation in the equestrian sector. As thousands of horse-riding enthusiasts are waiting for companies and brands to showcase the latest products, the finest clothes and equipment that help develop their skills and teach their children to practice this heritage sport, as well as their eagerness to participate in the specialised workshops and attend the live performances.

For decades, the people of the Emirates have been known for their interest in horses as one of the most prominent elements of connection with the Arab values. Over ages, this interest has developed to be linked to the national identity and authenticity of belonging by knowing the ancient breeds that, in their lineage, returned to Arab origins.

The late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan was interested in acquiring the best breeds of purebred Arabian horses. Based on his extensive experience and knowledge, he believed that it was a cause of goodness, optimism, and serenity of soul.

He encouraged holding and organising horse races in the Emirates and other countries around the world. To this day, French horse owners still owe thanks to Sheikh Zayed for the entry of purebred Arabian horses into the French tracks since 1994, specifically the city of “Chantilly”, and from there, it moved to other racetracks across Europe.
