Egyptian fans are looking forward to watching Compatriot Abdel Said; an experienced rider. Abdel Said is heading to the Dubai Show Jumping Championship after he secured his third-place finish at the Med Games-S in Barcelona. In the 2018’s edition of the Dubai Show Jumping Championship, Germany made sure its presence was felt by taking the lead; securing both the first and second place! Miriam Schneider riding Cartagena came in first, while Jorg Naeve riding Be Aperle VA came in second.

“This is my biggest Victory, I have never won a five-star, four-star, or even three-star Grand Prix before, so I am a bit surprised and very happy!” Said Schneider after winning the prestigious championship, with the prize amounting to nearly AED 650,000! The family-friendly event is for free, and you can check out their website for more information by clicking here.
