THE Bahrain Royal Equestrian and Endurance Federation (Breef) will be holding a 100-kilometre endurance ride for Bahrain's local stables on Friday.
Supreme Council for Youth and Sports first deputy chairman and Breef president Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa announced the event yesterday. It is set to take place at the Bahrain International Endurance Village in Sakhir.
Shaikh Khalid made the decision to hold the ride based on the applications from several owners of local stables.
The race will start at 5pm and it will feature four stages. The opening stage will be 30 kilometres in distance, followed by another 30km second stage. The third will be over 25km, while the fourth and final leg will cover just 15km.
The mandatory veterinary examinations for all participating horses will be held on race day from 3pm.
Shaikh Khalid said he is certain the race will be a tightly contested affair, with the large number of riders expected to participate. He wished the participants the very best in the ride, which he assured will be organised to the best abilities of Breef.
