THE Bahrain Royal Equestrian and Endurance Federation (Breef) is organising the first Women's Endurance Horseride Championship on January 31 at the Bahrain International Endurance Village in Sakhir.
Breef general secretary Ghalib Al Alawi said the race is a CEI 2 event, over 120km and is only open to women of all ages and nationalities.
Al Alawi said registration for this championship will be open from Sunday while the last day for accepting forms is January 29.
He added that the participants must be registered at the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) with their horses having an international passport.
Al Alawi said the passport is being issued by the FEI in order to allow each horse to participate in either any CEI or FEI-level events.
He thanked Breef president Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa for giving his directives to organise this event for the first time this season.
