In the Arabian peninsula, horses are an essential part of society. They embody culture, wealth, mobility, as well as being a living embodiment of grace and power. In Qatar, the breeding and training of horses has been developed into both a science and an art. Under the patronage of the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani, and of his daughter, Her Excellency Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani, who is also head of Qatar Museums Authority, Vanessa von Zitzewitz enjoyed unparalleled access to some of the finest equine bloodstock anywhere.
