Welcome to the inaugural Al Shira’aa Arabian Horse Show, designed as a joyful celebration of the beauty and heritage of our wonderful Arabian horse.
Some of the most renowned songs, poetry, art and stories from our region were born out of appreciation for the breed, which not only possesses great beauty but was also prized for its intelligence, courage and versatility.
The safeguarding of these ancient bloodlines is something that my family and I, going back many generations, are extremely passionate about. Yet we also seek to spread the word about these magnificent animals that have so greatly formed our heritage and growth as a nation. From the ancient bedouin people of the desert, who lived alongside the Arabian horse, to the show arenas of the fast-paced modern world, we humans have always had time to appreciate equine beauty in its most natural state.
And so we come to present day Abu Dhabi and the first Al Shira’aa Arabian Horse Show. Here you will see some of the best individuals of the breed anywhere in the world and I, and my team at Al Shira’aa Stables, invite you to join us in appreciation of an animal that has its roots in the mists of time yet continues to inspire us in our modern lives.
