Omani riders make history

For the first time, Oman will be among countries taking part in the finals of the ‘World Cup of Endurance’ in Malaysia in November. The historic achievement comes after riders of Royal Cavalry passed the distant phases of the French Rambuillet Race. This race qualifies contestants for the World Cup of Endurance. Sami Said Al Balushi who skilfully rode the mare ‘Luwana’ and Mohmood Marhoon Alfori, riding the mare ‘Khalifat’ passed the six race phases with unmatched success. The total distance of the phases is 160km. Well-known riders and horses of the endurance world took part in the French race.
