Saudi Equestrian Launches New-Look, Dual Language Website

29 January 2013 – Saudi Equestrian, team bronze medal winners at the London 2012 Olympic Games, has today launched an all new English/Arabic website –  The updated site has been built to be more user-friendly and easily navigable, as well as being fully optimised to be viewed on a range of mobile and tablet devices.

The website also incorporates a fresh look, whilst staying true to the origins of the Saudi Equestrian brand values. Content on the site includes: detailed biographies of the entire team (riders, horses and management); reports from shows in which the team competes; a comprehensive gallery of images of the team; and various other information about the team, their future competitions, and the recently announced Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup.

Ziyad Abduljawad, managing director of Saudi Equestrian, commented, “We have always prided ourselves on keeping the loyal fans of Saudi Equestrian fully up-to-date on the team’s performances and their plans from around the globe, and our new modern website will only allow us continue to grow to enable our fans to be closer to the team.”

The Saudi Equestrian Fund

The Saudi Equestrian Fund was created by HM King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz by Royal Decree in November 2009 to give the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia a lasting legacy in equestrianism through sport and cultural events.

The Saudi Equestrian Fund supports the Kingdom’s national show jumping team, Saudi Equestrian, which won a team bronze medal at the London 2012 Olympic Games, and the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup of which its support will run until the end of 2016.

In addition, the Fund supported two major cultural exhibitions focussing on the role of the horse in Arabic culture. A Gift from the Desert: The Art, History and Culture of the Arabian Horse was staged at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, USA, which ran from May until October 2010, part of which was during the FEI World Equestrian Games. The Fund also supported the cultural side of the Arabian horse in the UK after the British Museum hosted a major presentation – The Horse – from Arabia to Royal Ascot – which ran throughout the summer of 2012.
