Al Asayl Showjumping is a professional show jumping team based in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates.
The story starts in 2008, with a journey to France to find the three horses that began the string: Maxima 28, Oman De St Maudan & Ograaf D'Adriers. By the end of that first season we had placed in over 30 competitions, a success that can be attributed to the training and care the horses received under the management of Mr Jean Flottes and his wife Nathalie.
Certainly the most rewarding of our achievements came in December 2009 with a silver medal in the FEI World Children’s Championship collected by UAE representative Aisha Al Shamsi on board Ograaf.
Since then we have continued to place and win numerous national classes, national championships and international classes up to CSI4*.
We have a team of carefully selected horses and riders who compete worldwide under our colours. We take pride in sourcing horses from an early age as well as breeding our own stock, and producing them according to our ethics. Our youngsters have time to grow up in the cooler climate and greener pastures of France. Meanwhile the athletes have their time divided between Abu Dhabi for the winter season and Europe for the summer.
To combine sourcing and breeding a robust string of horses, training them according to our ethics from the very early stages to the highest level of equestrian sport, and always keeping their welfare at the forefront of our thoughts.
The horse is at the center of Al Asayl Show Jumping's philosophy. We believe in giving the best care to our animals and building relationships of trust and respect. We hope to continue to see our horses compete confidently on both the national and international circuits, in the UAE and worldwide.
