Horse racing and show jumping
Horses are of great heritage significance in Abu Dhabi, which has a wealth of equestrian talent.
The Abu Dhabi Equestrian Club is the home of horse racing in the capital with around 16 race meetings a year, usually held in the afternoons or evenings throughout the cooler season, and admission is free. The race night atmosphere is hard to beat, with six races per evening, starting at 30 minute intervals. There is no betting, but the Tri Cast Competition invites race goers to pick the first three finishers in each race, with prizes for the winners.
The Al Ain Equestrian, Shooting, and Golf Club has excellent facilities for the equestrian. Since 2007, when it opened its gates, the Club has hosted national and international events and has become the heart of equestrian activity amongst Al Ain residents and visitors.
