Endurance. The Sport of Sheikhs (Second Edition) In 680 BC, the Greeks introduced horse-drawn chariot racing into the Ancient Olympics. Run over nine miles in the hippodrome, the event was seen as an astonishing test of stamina for a horse. The Greeks had invented their own version of endurance.

Over two and a half millennia later, the sport of Endurance is again on the threshold of a march toward Olympic status. The chariots are gone. Instead the sport has returned to its original, Arabic form, a test of horsemanship where a single horse and rider press their outer limits to cross great distances in competition.

For thousands of years, the Arabs challenged their finest Arabian horses over the harsh desert. Fittingly it is the Arab world that has reinvigorated Endurance. The sport was revived in the Emirates a decade and a half ago and has since headlined activity.
