  • 21st-23rd November 2013





Qatar will host the LONGINES GLOBAL CHAMPIONS TOUR Championship Final at the prestigious state-of-the-art Al Shaqab Equestrian Centre in Doha. Founded by His Highness the Emir of Qatar, this magnificent new venue will see the best riders in the world pull out all the stops to win the LONGINES GLOBAL CHAMPIONS TOUR title for 2013.

The 5* event at Al Shaqab, a world class equestrian facility and part of the Qatar Foundation, will take place from November 21-23 and will deliver an electrifying climax to the season. Al Shaqab was established as part of HH Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani’s vision and passion to preserve and perpetuate the Arabian horse in Qatar and has developed into a major international equestrian facility encompassing multiple equine disciplines.

Qatar’s reputation as a global sports destination and a hub for major sports events continues to accelerate. Leading events like the LONGINES GLOBAL CHAMPIONS TOUR have been part of this evolution and Qatari national riders, including Sheikh Ali Al Thani, are increasingly prominent on the international show jumping stage.

Al Shaqab will be the impressive stage for the 2013 LONGINES GLOBAL CHAMPIONS TOUR Championship Final where its high quality and cutting-edge competition arenas, stabling and welfare facilities will underline Al Shaqab’s position as one of the foremost equestrian centres of excellence in the world.
