TENT-PEGGING

A relatively new discipline in the last couple of years to be offered at Boudheib Academy. However, this has not hindered its popularity or success with our students.

Tent pegging is a cavalry sport of ancient origin, it refers to a range of mounted cavalry games involving edged weapons on horseback, for which the term “equestrian skill-at-arms” is also used.

In a short space of time our riders have become the most accomplished tent-pegging team in the UAE. A proud moment for the academy was having 5 academy students represent the UAE in Tent-pegging at the 2016 World Cup in Cairo, Egypt where they secured a bronze medal.
