Dubai: Elite endurance riders to vie for unique new one meter high trophy

Competitors in the ninth annual HH Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Endurance Cup, presented by Longines, will be vying for the honour to lift a unique trophy that will be awarded to the winner of the renowned 160km contest.

The trophy, created by Royal Jewellers Asprey of London, stands one meter in height and weighs 20 kilograms.

2016 kicks off with two of our most experienced portuguese riders travelling their horses to the UAE to take part in the ‘HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Endurance Cup’. The competition takes place on the 9th January 2016 at the Dubai International Endurance City in the UAE. It is a CEI 3* 160km event organized under FEI rules, with much of the course running through the desert.

As in previous years, the Dubai Equestrian Club has extended an invitation to riders around the world to join them for this major annual event on their Endurance calendar. The Organizing Committee have stipulated a preference for previous medal winners and Elite endurance riders. The invitation includes the cost of transport and accommodation for the horse, rider and two crew members.

Portugal Endurance will be well represented at this International event by two very experienced riders, Rui Lanternas, João Moura and Rui Pereira.
