Please take a moment to watch our video of Deb’s recent visit to the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi
The Grand Mosque was built in the late 1990’s, its conception was initiated by H.H Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. Shiekh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan was the first president of U.A.E and an integral part of Arabian horse racing on an international level.
In 1980 Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan started breeding Arabian horses at his Royal Stud specifically for racing and endurance. He is credited with entering Arabian horses onto French and European race tracks.
