A quantum leap in the equine events at Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition


Abu Dhabi, July 03, 2021

Equestrian is an essential and pivotal sector in Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian since its establishment in 2003 and has witnessed a remarkable development in the last editions of ADIHEX, which represents the big efforts of UAE in preserving heritage sports and authentic traditions and introducing the importance of the purebred Arabian horses to people around the world.

The next edition of ADIHEX witnesses the participation of a wide range of regional companies specialized in the manufacture of riding supplies, trailers, horse boxes, horseshoes, saddles, horse bridles, nutritional supplements and feed, horse riding clothes and shoes, in addition to equestrian skills schools.


Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Ruler's Representative in Al Dhafra Region and Chairman of the Emirates Falconers’ Club, the 18th edition of Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition “ADIHEX 2021” will be organized by the Emirates Falconers’ Club from September 27 to October 3,2021, at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC). 

It is officially sponsored by the Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi, the International Fund for Houbara Conservation, and the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.

His Excellency Majid Ali Al Mansouri, Chairman of the Higher Organizing Committee and Secretary General of the Emirates Falconers’ Club, emphasized the importance of the purebred Arabian horses and their races, and the keenness to continue developing this heritage sport of which the UAE is proud of and  has succeeded in establishing its global footprint in the development of equestrianism, pointing out that ADIHEX became an annual renewed opportunity to celebrate the leadership of the Emirates in this field.

The late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, may God rest his soul, had a great and remarkable role in breeding and acquiring purebred Arabian horses, and launching their races and championships inside the UAE and around the world. As adherence to and interest in purebred Arabian horses is one of the most important pillars of Arab heritage and values, he was keen, may God have mercy on him, to organize, attend and encourage these races, and today they remain strongly present in the history, present and future of sports and heritage festivals.
