Asil Arabians achieving good results both in a show class and in a performance class (1st to 3rd place in show classes and 1st or 2nd place in a performance class) will be eligible for the special ranking "Performance and Type" and will be awarded a prize.
The horse with the best results will be awarded the title "ASIL CUP Champion Performance and Type" and a special award.
This special classification was successfully introduced for the first time at the HH Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Asil Cup 2014 in Castell. In the run-up to the event, the Asil Club provided support in having horses entered under saddle or given them advanced training under saddle. Approximately 30 Asil Arabians were trained for the riding classes, in the disciplines of Western and Dressage, but also in preparation for endurance rides. The aim of possible future initiatives should be to be able to start the horses in several disciplines, if possible, and, thus, demonstrate the willingness to perform, the character and the versatility of the Asil Arabians.
