The Saudi Knight

She continued: “I grew up in a family that had nothing to do with the equestrian world, so it was difficult to communicate and explain the extent of my attachment to horses, and they always see the effort I put into my journey to learn equestrian and the difficulties I went through, and the frequent travels to gain more knowledge, then they realized that it was my hobby.”

 So they supported me morally until I became what I am in today, and for the society in which I live in Al-Ahsa, eastern Saudi Arabia, it still finds it difficult for the girl to enter the equestrian world, and to participate in international races and forums, where she is restricted, which causes a lot of frustration for the Saudi knight.

There is a difficulty in reaching the platforms, but now we hope for many changes in favor of the Saudi knight in Al-Ahsa, with new blood presiding over the decision-making positions, and in light of the vision of the new kingdom, which enables Saudi women in all fields, as they have proven their superiority at all levels.

She concluded her speech: “Since ancient times, true equestrian people have been distinguished by courage, telling truth and strength in the face of difficulties. You find them generous in giving their knowledge, happy for the happiness of others, do not live in the shadows, and take the initiative of good.”
