‘Knights’ showcase skills at Al Ardah

MUSCAT, Sept 1 – Nearly 50 ‘knights’ showcased their horse-riding skills at ‘Al Ardah Horses’ event that saw participation from locals in the Wilayat of Ibra. The riders displayed their skills in both riding as well as taming horses. Al Ardah is a traditional art which can also be seen in other areas of the Sultanate, especially during social and national ceremonies. Folk dances and songs were performed at the event organised by the Ministry of Tourism. It shed light on Omani traditional life. Organising such events will help contribute to preserving Omani folklore and pass on traditional arts to the younger generation.
