Since the establishment of the United Arab Emirates, the founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, may God have mercy on him, Great attention was paid to equestrian and horses
It is thanks to the late, God willing, to encourage the breeding of horses in the modern sense, as he established his own stables for the breeding and care of horses early, in order to maintain the unique breed of Arabian horses, so he took care of it locally, regionally and globally, and encouraged its ownership and improvement of breeds and capabilities, and it was also credited for the late for making Arabian horse races throughout the world.
With the aim of involving all members of the community in achieving the vision of Sheikh Zayed, locally, regionally and globally, the Zayed Initiative is a partnership between Dubai Police General Headquarters and Meydan City, the equestrian and horseracing body in Dubai, through free horse riding training.
