UAE: Boudheib Academy Youngsters Learn Endurance Riding Skills



Boudheib Endurance Initiative

March 11 2017

The Boudheib Academy youngsters had a wonderful 2 days at the Boudheib Festival with 2 rides of 10km and 20km to test their endurance skills. Yesterday the 10km was open to Under 16's who had never ridden an endurance ride before, and today was followed by a 20km Open ride for beginners to endurance and for the first time they were allowed to canter - I am pleased to report that all horses and riders behaved impeccably.

These young Emiratis are the future of endurance here in the UAE and are learning horsemanship from a young age. Trainer Kieran Treacy runs a tight ship and the boys learn not only endurance but also show jumping, tent pegging and dressage.

Seems like they had a wonderful & memorable time of it all - once again Boudheib is showing the way and Driving the Future of Endurance.
