Arabian Horse in Qatar

arabian-horseCenturies before natural gas and petroleum gave prominence to Qatar as one of the world's fastest growing economies, the country was known for its prized Arabians horses.

When the Al Thani ancestors, the ruling family of the State of Qatar, migrated out of the inhospitable Arabian desert three centuries ago to settle in Qatar, the Arabian horse was a vital part of daily life.

The Arabian horse played an important role in the founding of Qatar. In 1893, Bedouin tribesmen and their courageous Arabian steeds, led by Sheikh Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani, defeated the Ottomans in a battle that would eventually led to Qatar's independence.
