Yemeni riders compete in rare equestrian competition in Sanaa

Yemeni riders compete in an equestrian competition at the Al-Wahda Club in the capital Sanaa in a rare respite from the country’s grim reality. Some 180 equestrians don their riding breeches and walk their horses out onto a plot of land in the heart of a city controlled by the Huthis, the Iranian-backed rebels locked in war with the government and its Saudi-led allies.
