Dubai’s International Horse Fair is free to all visitors. The fair is marking its 14th anniversary this year with thousands of visitors expected to attend. The event is the leading equestrian event in the Middle East, attracting visitors from across the region who want to learn from leading experts in the field.
Products will be on display, with guests learning new information about equestrian care, riding accessories and even fencing.
Visitors will also be treated to the Arabian Horse Championship, which features only the finest Arabian steeds. This year’s guests are also welcome to place their bids at the Live Arabian Horse Auction. The auction caters to bidders of all income levels, with the event’s organizers stating that there will be “prices to suit everyone.”
Heritage Village will also add their own flare to the event, with Bedouin horses and falconry also on display. The Village will showcase all of the local culture, making it a great choice for tourists that are in town for the International Horse Fair.
