In pictures: Horse racing show in Erbil

By Rudaw 6/1/2018
A horse race took place at the Erbil Equestrian Club arena on Friday. Three breeds of horses participated in the race: Arabic, European, and local breeds. The distance for the race was 1,650 meters (1 mile).

Equestrianism is taking a precedent in the Kurdistan Region as many horse races and jump shows have recently been held.

Erbil’s international jumping competition was launched for the first time in 2017. 

Admission to watch the races are free and betting is open for 5,000 Iraqi dinars. If the chosen horse wins the race, prizes are available to the ticket holder.
