Camel owner Rasha Al-Qurashi inherited the love of camels from her family, who shared the hobby of sitting near the sites where camels live, because of her feeling of familiarity with these animals that she sees since her childhood, and she watches her family dealing with them with love and comfort, so as soon as the opportunity was opened for the women to participate In the camel festivals, she decided to choose her she-camel that she loves, which she called “Al-Rasha”, to participate in the women’s race in the competitions of the sixth edition of the King Abdulaziz Camel Festival.
Al-Qurashi spoke to Al-Arabiya.net about the feelings of love and tenderness that she exchanges with her camel, which she personally supervises in her food and pasture. Participation, because my beauty is decorated and she will join her family who participate in camel competitions.”

Rasha recounted the story of her childhood and her family’s constant going to a site dedicated to camels in a site called “Al Arfa” in Taif, and that she used to go with her family to this place, and says: “I was happiest when visiting camel sites, and I learned all the information from my family and relatives who participate in Camel Mazayen competitions in Saudi Arabia, the Gulf states, Qatar and Bahrain.
She added: “I am reserved about the image of my camel until the end of the competition, because it will compete with many camels. The previous women’s participation with men is difficult to enter. There are many who advised me to participate in exchange for the beauty of my camel. I will continue in this field and enter these races.”
