Under the Patronage of
HRH Prince Saud Bin Naif Al Saud
Governor of the Eastern Province
During the 1st edition, the strong belief of HRH Prince Saud Bin Naif Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and his Deputy, HRH Prince Ahmed Bin Fahd Bin Salman Al Saud, in what started as an idea helped us to develop the Festival into one of the most successful events in the region. With over 60,000 visitors, guests from 30 different countries, 450 horses of the finest Arabians and 140 breeders from in and out the Kingdom, the Festival was nothing less than a big hit.
Asharqia Arabian Horse Festival will feature top quality national and international Arabian horses in exciting competitive venues while simultaneously highlighting the history of this beloved breed and its heritage as one of the Kingdom’s national treasures. The Festival is envisioned as a cultural event where equestrian competitions are joined with educational elements and positive entertainment.
