THE Bahrain Royal Equestrian and Endurance Federation (Breef) is organising the Crown Prince Endurance Horse Ride Championship, to be sponsored by Batelco, on Friday.
Taking place at the Bahrain International Endurance Village in Sakhir, the event will be the season's first ride to be held in the evening and features two rides.
The main ride will be over 120 kms for senior and junior riders while an additional 80 kms qualifying ride is also set on the day.
Friday's rides will be held under the patronage of His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince and Supreme Council for Youth and Sports president.
Breef's president Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa expressed delight in organising this prestigious championship, which consists of five stages.
The first two stages will be over 30 kms, the third will be over 24 kms, the fourth over 20 kms and the fifth and last stage over 16 kms.
The 80-km qualifying ride will be over three stages- 30 kms each for the first and second while the third will be over 20 kms.
Shaikh Khalid thanked the Crown Prince for supporting this event, adding that without his continued backing it would be impossible to organise a championship of this scale.
The Breef's chief also stressed on the significant role of Batelco as official partners.
