Five AWESOME Horsey Events this weekend

Looking for some fab-horsey action this weekend? Well, once again the UAE has a slew of events across three Emirates and five very different disciplines. You couldn’t ever say the UAE isn’t exceedingly good to us horsey-folks!

Jumping for Joy

This weekend is all about Sharjah. We’ll be there, will you? Sharjah’s flagship equestrian showjumping event moves into its final week with the culmination of the show, the Sharjah Rulers Cup. This weekend’s competitions will see over 300 riders from 40 countries, offering jumping from 10am to 9pm across both Friday and Saturday, plus there’s also; food vendors, kids pony rides, heritage performances and more. With so much on offer and general admission completely free- we’ll see you there!


Polo is ‘feeling the love’ a little early this week, with the start of the Emirates Polo Association Valentine’s Tournament at Dubai Polo and Equestrian Club. Matches will run from Saturday 8th Feb right through to Saturday 15th Feb. Those who love their polo are encouraged to come along and view the high-octane action.

Full Race-card at Jebel Ali

It’s a day of fast paced action at Jebel Ali on Friday with seven races starting at 10.15am with the CBD Maiden race. The highlight of the day though, must be the AED 60,000 Emirates NBD Handicap for Four-year-olds at 12.15pm. The much loved ‘family racecourse’ is now back in action after completing renovations to its unique ‘uphill finish’ track surface.
