The Equestrian federation of the United Arab Emirates has selected a team of four riders to represent the UAE at the 2023 Asian Games in Hangzhou, China, on 26 - 28 September 2023. 

It has been 13 years since an UAE rider has competed at the Asian Games and it will be the first team that a team is representing the nation at this event. In 2010 UAE's Farah Al Khojai rode Asuka Sakurai's previously owned Dubai Dutyfree Wisper (by Wolkenstein II x Grenadier) at the Games.

Riding for the UAE at the 2023 Asian Games are:

  • Mohammed Alserkal on Hermes-V, a 11-year old Dutch warmblood by Bretton Woods x Goldstar
  • Ali Khalfan Aljahouri on Ecencka, a 14-year old Dutch warmblood by Jazz x Damiro
  • Natalie Lankester on Cash, a 16-year old Dutch warmblood by Rubiquil x Obelisk
  • Bianca Schutz on Fearless WS, a 9-year old Westfalian by Franziskus x Paradiesvogel
