The Social & Sport Contribution Fund (Daam) and Al Shaqab will cooperate to support the development of equestrian sports, particularly among the youth.

The agreement is for a period of one year, with Daam’s vision to make a positive difference in the community by supporting social and sports activities, and enhancing sustainable social development, in alignment with Qatar National Vision 2030. Daam is a supporter of Qatar Equestrian Tour – Longines Hathab, which focuses on young riders and aims to inspire Qatar’s next generation of equestrian champions.

Preparations are under way for the start of Season 4 of the popular annual equestrian series, which is co-organised and hosted by Al Shaqab.

According to Daam CEO Abdulrahman Bin Abdulatif Al Mannai they are delighted to announce their agreement with Al Shaqab, an organisation, he said, that is passionately committed to preserving and promoting Qatar’s rich equestrian heritage.

Equestrian sport truly represents Qataris, our tradition and our culture, and this is reflected in the competitions and events undertaken by Al Shaqab.

Daam and Al Shaqab will develop equestrian sports in Qatar, especially among the youth. This investment in the youth, in terms of helping them understand and appreciate Qatar’s culture and traditions, will play a positive role in enhancing social development.

Al Shaqab Executive Director Khalifa Al Attiya was similarly pleased about the new partnership.

We are honoured to welcome the Social & Sport Contribution Fund on board, and we look forward to a collaborative and rewarding partnership.

He added that Al Shaqab, as a centre of equestrian excellence, greatly values Daam’s commitment to the development of horsemanship in Qatar, particularly among the youth. He said that this level of support will play a great role in encouraging young riders, and ultimately keeping alive an invaluable part of Qatar’s history, culture and tradition.
