Salem Outperforms International Field of Show Jumpers

11 years

Sharjah Men’s College higher diploma student Salem Ahmed Al Suwaidi outpaced an impressive field of riders by taking first place in three major international show jumping competitions held in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah in January.

While most Higher Colleges of Technology students were enjoying a relaxing mid-year break, Salem was in full swing on his mount, named Natalie, competing in three big international show jumping competitions.

This was an excellent achievement for Salem against a quality field of riders from many countries such as Armenia, Germany, Russia, Italy and the Gulf Countries.

Salem competed against 39 riders at the Dubai International Show Jumping Competition, 50 riders at the Abu Dhabi International Show Jumping Competition and 90 riders at the Sharjah International Show Jumping Competition.
