Re: [RC] [RC] [Endurance Riding: News] Dubai to host world's richest ride - John Teeter

Actually, this sounds like the Dubai answer to the difficulties of becoming the permanent venue for the WEC. The ride entrants are relatively/loosely related to the FEI world rankings list (although I don't see Mercedes there:( and seems to be mostly populated with riders from EU and GCC.

It would be very nice if they learned from MAS/SultansCup and spread that 1.5 MILLION Dh. over all the finishers instead of giving it away to the first place guys, and just gave an inscription on the Maktoum Cup to the winners (IMO)

There you go. Family entertainment...like the Disney Channel meets NASCAR. Dubai's vision for endurance...not my taste but I'm sure someone will love it.
