Student Riders compete in Olympic disciplines of showjumping and dressage


Al Shaqab, member of Qatar Foundation, has successfully completed the first Equine Education Department (EED) Internal Competition of the 2019/2020 academic year. The two-day event was aimed at encouraging and inspiring Al Shaqab’s student riders. Students competed in the popular Olympic disciplines of showjumping and dressage.

 

The competition was open to student riders of all skill levels and was conducted in the Al Shaqab Main Indoor Arena. Al Shaqab’s EED organizes four internal competitions every academic year as part of its curriculum-based equestrian education system. 

 

The curriculum-based equestrian education offered by the Al Shaqab EED equips the students with skills to progress professionally. One of the motivating factors behind organizing internal competitions is to allow students to gain practical experience in competitions, display the skills that they have learned, and earn ranking points for their advancement to the next level of their curriculum.

 

Mohammed Sultan Al Suwaidi, Manager, Equine Education Department at Al Shaqab, said: “We aim to conduct periodic internal competitions during the school year, as they contribute significantly towards providing our student riders with much-needed experience and developingtheir confidence in competitions. The competition is open to all our students. As we evaluate the progress of our riders through these competitions, it also offers our student riders the opportunity to learn to compete with a true sense of sportsmanship.”
