The people of the Emirates have been known for decades for their interest in horses as one of the most prominent elements of association with Arab values. Throughout the ages, this interest has developed to be linked to national identity and the authenticity of belonging through knowledge of the ancient dynasties whose descendants returned to Arab origins.

The late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan was interested in acquiring the best purebred Arabian horse breeds. Based on his extensive experience and knowledge, he believed that this was a reason for goodness, optimism and serenity of spirit.

He encouraged the establishment and organization of horse races in the UAE and other countries around the world. To this day, French horse owners are still indebted to Sheikh Zayed for the entry of purebred Arabian horses into the French tracks since 1994, specifically the city of Chantilly, and from there they moved to other racetracks all over Europe.
