The UAEERF has released the much anticipated endurance racing calendar for the upcoming 2022 to 2023 season.
To avoid racing through any remaining high temperatures, this season kicks off a little later than last year with a 40km and 80km qualifier at Bouthib on the 25th October.
Overall, there is a good mix of CEN and CEI fixtures with 31 events at Boudhib, 27 at Dubai Endurance City and eight to be held in Al Wathba.
For those looking to qualify new and or young horses there will be 11 opportunities for 40km across Dubai and Bouthib, plus ten additional 80km events across the same venues.
The big races and festivals are still on the cards with Al Wasl Endurance Ride, Commemoration Day Endurance Ride for Private Stables, and the Yamamah Endurance Cup for Mares to be held in Dubai.
Al Wathba will see the 160km President of the Emirates Endurance Cup, Sheikha Fatima Bint Monsoor Bin Zayed Al Nayhan CEN 100km for private Owners and the 120km Abu Dhabi Festival Endurance Cup.
Boudhib will again play host to a series of one and two star events including: President of the United Arab Emirates Endurance Cup for Private Owners and the Sheikh Sultan bin Zayed Al Nayhan Endurance Festival.
The season closes on the 19th March 2023 with the 120km Abu Dhabi Endurance Festival Endurance Cup in Al Wathba.
