China international horseracing meeting kicked off in Yinchuan, capital of northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region Saturday, which attracted nearly 100 equestrian lovers from home and abroad with over 120 quality horses.

The meeting encompasses three racing disciplines, including International Equestrian Federation (FEI) 80km-endurance, speed and horse-walking races.

During the competition event, other equestrian shows will be staged, including dressage, jumping and riding-shooting.

The meeting was held along the Great Wall and Beacon Tower in Yinchuan, which is a great appeal especially to foreign equestrian lovers.

The meeting is held to promote the exchange between Chinese and foreign equestrian lovers and lead more people to approach the healthy and low-carbon exercising choices, said the organizers.
