on

The Diriyah Equestrian Festival will be welcoming more than 100 female and male equestrian riders to compete in the second edition of the festival, which will be held northwest of Riyadh in the UNESCO protected area of Al-Diriyah.

The six-day festival taking place in the historic town of Diriyah will be held from December 12-14 and December 19-21, allowing equestrians to challenge and compete with Saudi riders. Participants will also be competing for a chance to qualify as individual riders in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic.

This festival is only one of the many events that will be held during this Diriyah Season, a season of sport, entertainment and cultural events.

Hosting the event is Saudi Arabia’s Olympic medalist Ramzy Al-Duhami. “We are hoping to raise the show-jumping circuit in the Kingdom to an international elite standard,” Al-Duhami said.

“Organizing an international World Cup Event in Saudi Arabia for future generations is a privilege. Riding on your home ground is an honor. I am looking forward to the future of our sport at this standard.” He added.

The event will also mark the first time that the Kingdom allow female jockeys to compete in an international equestrian event in the Kingdom.

The Kingdom will also host the Saudi Cup, the world’s richest horse race, next year in February and female equestrians will also get to participate.

The exhibition is organized by the Saudi Arts Council under the supervision and support of the Ministry of Culture, and it is the seventh edition of the event under the title of “I Love You, Urgently.”

“I Love You, Urgently” encourages artists, architects, and designers from the Arab world to engage in conversations on pressing climate concerns to provide a local context on an international issue and explore tangible solutions for a sustainable future in more creative outlets instead of the traditional “scientific vernacular,” stated the Saudi Arts Council in an official release.

“I have long been delighted and fascinated with the concepts and positive attitude of biomimicry, as well as with the notion that, by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies, we already have the solutions to a sustainable future,” said curator Maya El Khalil.

“I hope 21,39 Jeddah Arts 2020 is a catalyst for new ways of thinking about how we live.” She added.
