First batch of horses arrive for CHI Al Shaqab

A flight carrying 45 top showjumping horses has touched down in Doha, ahead of Commercial Bank CHI Al Shaqab Presented by Longines, the international equestrian event taking place at the Longines Arena at Al Shaqab from February 27-29.

In total, 130 horses from all around the world – including Germany, Netherlands, France, Belgium, Spain, Austria and Switzerland - will arrive on three specially chartered flights to participate in the event.

The horses will compete in the Olympic equestrian disciplines of showjumping, dressage, and para dressage. CHI (Concours Hippique International – International Equestrian Competition) is the official title awarded by the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) to international equestrian competitions with three or more equestrian disciplines.

Commercial Bank CHI Al Shaqab Presented by Longines is one of only five CHI competitions worldwide and the first and only equestrian event of its kind in the Middle East and Asia (Mena) region.

It is being organised and hosted by Al Shaqab for the seventh time.
