Sayyid Theyazin attends Royal Windsor Horse Show in UK

LONDON: Assigned by His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik, His Highness Sayyid Theyazin bin Haitham al Said, attended the Royal Windsor Horse Show which is being held on the grounds of the British Royal Windsor Castle in the United Kingdom on Saturday.


The Sultanate of Oman, represented by the Royal Cavalry at the Royal Court Affairs, took part in the Show which continues until May 15 on the occasion of the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom of Great Britain, Northern Ireland and Head of the Commonwealth.


More than 500 horses and a thousand participants, including jockeys, musicians, writers and actors from different countries are taking part in the show in response to a Royal invitation.


The Royal Cavalry participates in the traditional horse shows for which the Sultanate of Oman is famous. The Royal Cavalry musical band played Omani and international musical pieces. The Royal Cavalry participated in the first day shows in the morning and evening sessions that drew a large crowd of fans of equestrian sports and traditional shows.


Dr Sarhan bin Salim al Zaidi, Director-General of the Royal Cavalry, said the Royal Cavalry’s participation in the Royal Windsor Horse Show came in response to an official invitation for attendance and participation following which the preparations for the participation began through meetings and communications with the organising committee to agree on the shows that would be assigned to the Royal Cavalry and their timings.


We are keen to highlight the cultural, civilisational and heritage legacy of the Sultanate of Oman in this global show as such shows contribute to the exchange of experiences among the participants and we seek to make the most of our presence in this international event to serve equestrian sports and various musical fields, Al Zaidi said.
