CHI Al Shaqab: the elite equestrians gather in Doha

The Al Shaqab CHI will take place in Doha from Monday 2 to Saturday 7 March and will gather the world’s show jumping elite, as well as dressage and vaulting stars – and a para-dressage premiere…

Doha can take it relaxed. The event sits very high up and the organisers, Al Shaqab and its dynamic staff that work all year around not only for CHI Al Shaqab but for other equally important equine events are playing the big game for the third time in a row, always with the support of ExxonMobil, the event’s proud sponsor.

The best show jumping riders in the world will be there, and last year’s winner, Germany’s Ludger Beerbaum will defend his title in the CSI5* Grand Prix (with two rounds and a jump-off, that will take place on March 8th.
The host nation also has brilliant jumping stars, such as Hamad Nasser Al Qadi, Bassen Hamd Mohammed and HH Sheikh Ali Al Thani.

Doha is the only location for vaulting in all of Asia, offering 3*competition. Para dressage will premiere in Doha. In all of Asia there will be only these three competitions for dressage riders with impairments at Al Shaqab.

The world’s endurance calendar for 2015 holds 258 rides in total. Of the 47 held in Asia seven are in Doha alone, with three of them going over 120 km.
