His Excellency Dr. Khalid Bin Ibrahim Al-Sulaiti, General Manager, Katara and Chairman of the Organizing Committee, Katara International Arabian Horse Festival said: “The cultural calendar of Cultural Village Foundation, Katara, will include the impressive Katara International Arabian Horse Festival. While Katara has established itself as an iconic tourist destination, it has always focused on placing Qatar’s rich culture and heritage under the spotlight. Arabian horses are an integral part of this heritage. The Title Show featuring purebred Arabian horses will showcase some of the best-of-the-breed. Horse owners, breeders, individuals or associations owning equestrian training centers, and those associated with Arabian horse organizations will benefit greatly from the opportunity to meet the bigger community of Arabian horses, all under one roof. This will offer them a platform to develop their business with the top players of the equine industry. Other benefits will include enhanced media coverage and the possibility of getting involved with a business accelerator for 2021.”

Horse owners and breeders of champion horses can participate with confidence, as the highest standards of integrity and fairness will be upheld. The proceedings will be held in accordance with the standards and rules set by European Conference of Arab Horse Organizations (ECAHO).
