Al Khojai ready for Asian Games in China

UAE equestrienne Farah Al Khojai has reached the final stages of her preparation for the Asian Games, being held in China in November.
The talented sportswoman is the only entrant from the UAE in the dressage competition at the Games, and is currently completing a gruelling training schedule in Germany as she readies herself and her Hanoverian stallion, Dubai Duty Free Whisper, for the event. “To represent my country in an international sporting event has long been a dream of mine, and I am so proud to be able to do so at this year’s Asian Games,” said Farah Al Khojai. “I have dedicated the past two years to this goal, and while it has meant many sacrifices and extremely hard work, I am determined to do the very best I can.
“In addition to the long hours spent training, I have had the extra challenge of finding financial support. Finally, thanks to the generosity of Dubai Duty Free, I am able to fly the flag for the UAE at the Asian Games.”
One of the world’s oldest sporting activities, competitive dressage involves an increasingly difficult series of routines designed to show the suppleness, obedience and strength of the horse, and control, precision and expertise of the rider.
Earlier in the year Al Khojai represented the UAE in the FEI World Challenge, earning second place in the Advanced Class. More than 46 countries around the world are participating at this year’s Asian Games which takes place from November 14 to 17 in the Chinese city of Guanzhou.
