We go behind the scenes at the recent Abu Dhabi Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ event as four Middle East countries battled it out to become the first qualifiers for this year's final...

Seven teams headed to Abu Dhabi for the recent Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ event at the stunning Al Forsan International Resort.


There was added pressure for the four Middle East countries participating – Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Syria and hosts UAE - who were vying for two qualifying spots on offer for the 2019 series final in Barcelona.


Equestrian World went behind the scenes as this quartet battled it out for those two places at the prestigious Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ Final in October. As well as footage from the event, the Equestrian World team also caught up with Saudi Arabia's 2012 Olympic bronze medallist Ramzy al Duhami and UAE's Abdullah Al Marri to find out what Nations Cup glory means to them.
