In equestrian sports, CHI (“Concours Hippique International” or Equestrian International Competition) is a title of nobility, something rare that does not come easy. Organisers of major equestrian events covet to have this title and riders participating at CHI events compete fiercely to win. CHI AL SHAQAB is the first equestrian competition of its kind in the Middle East and Asia to be sanctioned by the FEI (Fédération Equestre Internationale or International Equestrian Federation) and one of only 4 CHI equestrian events in the world.
For CHI AL SHAQAB 2017, we will be hosting competitions in 3 equestrian disciplines over the 3 days, including Show Jumping, Dressage and Para-Dressage. In addition, CHI AL SHAQAB 2017 will also create a festival area with food court, coffee corners, entertainment zone with interative video and virtual reality games, F1 and horse simulators and pony riding. A range of traditional cultural activities are also planned for children and adults alike featuring henna painters, falcon handlers and delicious traditional food to enable foreign visitors to experience Qatari hospitality.
