Dubai Police: UAE's First Tent Pegging Police Team

The team has already secured top positions in many national and international championships.

Dubai Mounted Police Station has established the nation's first "Tent pegging" police team. This officially recognised sport showcases riders' high-level skills and abilities to handle horses efficiently. Dubai Police's team forms the largest contingent of the UAE national tent pegging team and is accredited by the Emirates Equestrian Federation. Captain Rashed Salem Al Shamsi, head of the Social Services Department at the Dubai Mounted Police Station and supervisor of the tent pegging team, said that the station's capabilities had enabled the creation of an optimal environment for team formation.

He noted, "This involved selecting and training a core group of riders and employing specialised expertise, including the national team's coach, to prepare them for this showy sport."

Dr Major General Muhammad Issa Al Adhad, director of the Dubai Mounted Police Station and head of the Tent Pegging team, emphasised the continuous directive front the Dubai Police Commander-in-chief, Lieutenant General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, on the importance of developing human resources across various fields through advanced training programmed and sports participation.

"This initiative aims to enhance skills and world performances, contributing to Dubai Police's strategic goals of boosting community security and safety," Al Adhab said. He added that Dubai Mounted Police Station has a sophisticated system in this field and strives to optimise human resources.

"Establishing the tent pegging team services as a tool to maintain high craftsmanship and exceptional performance among our riders will boost their confidence, motivation, and participation in local and international championships and foster a competitive environment within the sport," Al Adhab continued.

Following their training, the team has achieved significant success, securing top positions in various national and international championships in both ring and sword games, contributing to the UAE's presence in this globally recognised equestrian sport.
