I believe that equestrianism is part of our heritage as Arabs, but more importantly, it was the sport that my father God rest his soul, felt was the most classy, and the most suitable for his daughter.
He affected my life and my future undeniably, when I was six years old, by giving me first two camels, and then a filly on my birthday that was born and whose mother died in birth.
I did not choose jumping as my equestrian discipline, it chose me. I did all the other disciplines as a child, and still do now.
