Following the huge success of the inaugural event, the new partnership will centre on Al Shira’aa being the title sponsor for the 2020 British Young Horse Championships at Bolesworth.

Al Shira’aa stables are proud to have set up their own breeding programme based in the South of England, and are excited to align this venture to support young horse development in the United Kingdom. 

As a breeder, Al Shira’aa Stables focus on breeding Elite foals out of their home team mares and stallions, many of whom have competed themselves up to CSI 5* 1.60m level.

The five day young horse showcase runs from August 19 – 23 in the stunning grounds of Bolesworth Castle, home of the Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show and will feature 4, 5, 6 & 7 yo classes incorporating the World Breeding Jumping Championship Qualifiers for 2020. 

This year, Al Shira’aa landed a silver medal in the 5yo Championship at the World Championship final at Lanaken with their exciting prospect Chacco Bay, and will be bringing the team to Bolesworth in 2020 to build on this success.

Managing Director of Bolesworth, Nina Barbour said: “We are delighted to be forming a partnership with Al Shira’aa.  They share our values and Equestrian vision with respect to the promotion of Elite Sport Horse Breeding and the development of both young horses and young riders for the sport, as well as promoting World Class Showjumping across the globe.”

Bolesworth will also be working with Al Shira’aa to support and promote the Al Shira’aa Horse Show and UAE tour, which offer International riders a unique opportunity to enjoy top class facilities, and a huge range of opportunities to jump including Amateur, Young Horse, and International classes up to CSI 4* level incorporating a WEG Qualifier.
