CAIRO – 6 September 2017: Sharqia governorate prepares to host the 22nd Sharqia Festival for Arabian Horses on September 14 and 15 in the equestrian land in Bilbeis.

General Khalid Saaed, Sharqia’s governor, stated that Sharqia’s Festival for Arabian Horses is a dignified sports event that the governorate has hosted for many years. The festival promotes desert sports tourism through equestrian sports, horse riding and Arabian horse beauty pageants.

Sharqia’s governor also added that the festival will last for two days and the participants will be the members of equestrian clubs, owners of horse ranches, and Arabian horse lovers, including Egyptians, Arabs and foreigners. He added that the winners will be rewarded with valuable awards, such as excellence cups and shields from the governorate.

Egyptian-bred Arabian horses are very unique

and special, to the extent that European countries such

as Italy and Germany

import them all the way from Egypt.
