Endurance Tracks

In 2023, AlUla hosted another edition of this 2-star sanctioned ride (CEI 2*). The course was comprised of 120km of natural tracks within the magnificent landscape of AlUla, and was divided into 4 loops that varied in distance.

Equality in Sports

As with all Equestrian Sports, Endurance riding is one of the few inclusive sports where men and women compete alongside each other with equal opportunity to achieve success and recognition. 19% of the almost 200 riders in the 2022 edition were female.

Horse Welfare

Veterinary inspections at the end of each course loop, make sure to uphold the highest standards of horse welfare. Although the rides are timed, the emphasis is on both rider and horse to finish all 4 loops in good condition rather than coming home fastest.

Equine Training Programme

AlUla has a long history of horse-riding and equestrianism, which extends back thousands of years. Drawing on the region’s heritage, training programmes and new opportunities have been created for local horse riders, coaches, and other roles.
