Doha, 21 February 2022 - Three flights carrying 146 magnificent competition horses touched down in Doha, ramping up preparations for Al Shaqab’s signature event, Commercial Bank CHI Al Shaqab Presented by Longines 2022.
The premier international equestrian event – the strongest and only championship of its kind in the Middle East and Asia region - takes place at the iconic Longines Arena at Al Shaqab, a member of Qatar Foundation, from February 24 to 26.
The elite showjumping and dressage horses, which hail from countries all around the world, first made their way to Belgium from various global departure points over the past few days.
They then began their journey to Doha, nose-to-tail, on specially chartered flights designed to preserve the welfare of the horses.
The final flight arrived in Qatar yesterday, and the powerful and breathtakingly beautiful horses are primed for action with the world’s best riders at Commercial Bank CHI Al Shaqab Presented by Longines 2022.
