Guatemala. The Mayan Adventure Ride 2008 - The Ingenio Magdalena Challenge 1st Edition, ended successfully on Sunday the 20th of July.

The Mayan Ride 2008 proved that Guatemala can stage an event that is up to the highest international standards, classifying international riders for their participation in world wide events of Endurance. This event places Guatemala at the vanguard of the whole region with the capacity to develop this equestrian discipline with the participation of excellent riders, FEI approved judges, veterinarians and officials.

Several months ago, Jinetes de Aventura Endurance - Endurance Adventure Riders, decided to organize a qualifying event for the Malaysia Endurance World Championship 2008. The decision to hold the event was based on several factors. The Guatemalan Endurance Riders had performed very well at many international events and they had a good chance to qualify.

If the riders could successfully finish the race in theses conditions they would have a good chance to perform in Malaysia.
