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

Y'all need to be able to watch some of the cable TV in our part of the world...like Dubai One. Full of ads for all the wonders of life in Dubai and praise for the fearless leader. Why, they have the finest culture money can buy, and now they are branching out into sport.

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)
