By QLNews

Qatar’s premier international equestrian competition,  CHI Al SHAQAB presented by Longines is taking place at the Longines Arena at Al Shaqab from February 27-29.

It will not only feature world-class equestrian competition but fun-filled family activities and entertainment that will captivate and fascinate spectators.

This year’s festival area and dedicated family entertainment zone will offer a variety of entertaining activities suitable for visitors of all ages.  This includes magic and puppet shows, marionettes, arcade games, art & craft, face painting, virtual reality games and traditional Qatari cultural activities such as henna designing and falcon handling.

“CHI” stands for Concours Hippique International or International Equestrian Competition. The three magic letters make all the difference in the prestigious equestrian world. It is a title of nobility, something rare that does come not easy. Organizers yearn for this title, while riders covet winning at a show of this stature.

First organized in 2013, CHI AL SHAQAB has evolved to become one of the highlights on the world’s equestrian calendar. It brings together the world’s top-ranking riders in three Olympic equestrian disciplines – show jumping, dressage, and para-dressage. 

CHI AL SHAQAB 2020 presented by Longines is one of five CHI events worldwide but the only one of its kind in the Middle East and Asia.

Tickets for CHI AL SHAQAB presented by Longines, including exclusive VIP packages, are now available online on www.q-tickets.com and www.alshaqab.com.
