Forty-nine countries are participating in the tournament. While 34 countries will compete in the team category, 15 will compete in the individual category. As many as 348 horses will participate, with five riders for each team.
The Sultanate's participation in the World Cup finals of endurance comes as part of the World Equestrian Games, which will have the participation of 60 countries, competing in eight events.
It is the Sultanate's first participation in the World Equestrian Games.
Sayyid Monther bin Saif bin Hamad Al Busaidi, chairman of Oman Equestrian Federation said that the World Equestrian Games, which began on Wednesday, is a prestigious global event and Oman's team is taking part in the tournament for this reason.
