Doha – Three flights carrying 146 magnificent competition horses have touched down in Qatar’s dazzling capital city of 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 the 24th to the 26th of February.
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 on February 20, 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.

Today, Al Shaqab’s impressive facilities, which are distinctively designed in the shape of a horseshoe, cover 980,000 square meters. With an iconic Main Arena comprising both an indoor and outdoor venue capable of holding over 5,000 spectators, Al Shaqab is part of Qatar’s growing reputation on the world stage that showcases its ability to host major international sports event at the highest level.
