Abu Dhabi Equestrian Club
The Abu Dhabi Equestrian Club is a tranquil oasis in one of the Gulf’s most up-to-date and beautiful cities. The Club covers a vast area and provides members with a relaxed and restful atmosphere away from the hustle of modern day life. As the name implies, the Club was originally established as an equestrian center, but over the years, due to the encouragement and support of the late President His Highness Sheikh Zayed Bin SultanÿAl Nahyan, the Club has enjoyed steady and sustained development. What was once an undeveloped sandy area is now arguably one of the finest recreational parks in the entire Gulf region. The complex consists of an international standard racecourse with racing conditions that are comparable to anywhere in the world. A number of important races take place annually, including the National Day Cup, H.H. The President’s Cup and The Emirates Championship. These prestigious races have been established for over 10 years and are recognized internationally. The facility also includes a circular, 2,000-meter training track on the inside of the racecourse and more than 250 air-conditioned stalls used exclusively for stabling the racehorses.
