  Al-Faris International Horseback Archery Championship

Amman — Jordan is scheduled to host the Al-Fairs International Horseback Archery Championship III, under the Royal Patronage, in Amman between 20 and 21 April, with the participation of 46 contestants from 24 countries.

Al-Faris III competitions revolve around three Horseback Archery Styles: the European Style, known as the Hungarian Style; the Asian Style, known as the Korean Style; and the Oriental Style, known as Al-Ghara—Arabic for “raid”—which is a newly developed Jordanian Style that combines archery with tent-pegging.

Jordan is organising and hosting Al-Faris III in an effort to preserve and revive the intangible cultural heritage of Horseback Archery, which has deep roots in Arabic, Islamic, European, Asian, and Turkish cultures.

The championship also promotes interest in equestrianism and the values, arts and sports it encompasses, according to the organising committee of Al-Faris III, whose Honorary Chairman is His Royal Highness Prince Hashim bin Al Hussein, the Chief Royal Counselor.

Jordan hosted and organised the first two Al-Faris Championships in 2011 and 2012.

The Public Security Directorate’s Mounted Police Team will represent Jordan for the third time in this championship, which will be held this year at Al-Rayah Parade Grounds in the Royal Hashemite Court.

The contestants will compete this year to win the first three ranks per style. Al-Faris III will also honour the top three outstanding competitors in all styles combined.

According to the Jordan Tourism Board, one of the championship’s sponsors, Al-Faris III will cement Jordan’s position as a global destination for cultural and sports tourism.

The championship’s activities are open to the public, but due to limited seats, those interested in attending should submit a guest registration form available on Al-Faris III website (www.alfaris.jo) by 10 March 2018 to receive confirmation electronically.

Equestrian sports and heritage enthusiasts may also follow the championship’s activities on Al-Faris III’s official website and Facebook page.
