They went to Pakistan for hunting....

What is World Military Endurance Championship? Who among the military personnel qualifies to participate in this competition? Is there a Civilian Endurance Challenge?
It is nice to learn that a Kazakhstani equestrian was among the top 5.

There are a lot of races during the cooler month in UAE. From January to April 2014 there will be 33 endurance races in UAE. Then will be a summer break, followed by new races which start in October.

No, its not a really team sport. But you need to be a team with your horse and also you need a team for all the trappings. The family of Al Maktoum also take part in races outside of UAE, mainly in GB and U.S.

You need other people for doing this sport, like veterinarians, stable boys etc., and thats what I meant with trappings.

Endurance rides and races can be any distance, though they are rarely over 160 km for a one-day competition. The ride is divided into sections, with different names (legs, phases, etc.), depending on sanctioning organization. After each phase, horses are stopped for a veterinary inspection, where they are checked for soundness and dehydration, with their pulse and respiration taken. To continue the ride, the horse must pass the examination, including reducing its heart rate below that specified for the event, although terrain and weather may require the ride veterinarians to set a different maximum target. The riders' time keeps running until their horses reach the required target, so it is important that the horses recover as soon as possible. Any horse deemed unfit to continue (due to lameness or excessive fatigue, for example) is eliminated from further competition.

After the veterinary inspection, the horse must be held for an additional time (usually between 20–45 minutes), at which time it is fed and watered. If the veterinary inspection is on the course rather than at base camp, ride management usually delivers to the inspection location a cache of riders' personal gear, food,and water.

Riders are free to choose their pace during the competition, adjusting to the terrain and their mount's condition. Therefore, they must have a great knowledge of pace, knowing when to slow down or speed up during the ride, as well as a great knowledge of their horse's condition and signs of tiring. Riders may also choose to ride, or may dismount and walk or jog with their horse without penalty. However, they must be mounted when they cross the starting and finish lines. The winning horse is the first one to cross the finish line.

Yesterday Shaikh Hamdan bin Mohammed took part in a friendly match between a Dubai Government team and the UAE wheelchair basketball team at Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex to highlight ‘My Community - A city for everyone’, an initiative to help people with disabilities. Shaikh Hamdan bin Mohammed has launched this initiative in November last year.

Assalam Walaikum,

The group is so silent, No activity, no discussion. Btw, was just very curious to know that is Sheikh Hamdans engagement with her cousin Sheikha Sheikha back on track? I got little hints from Sheikha Shaikha Bint Mohammeds Facebook & Instagram pages. I am very sorry if I am causing trouble for people or may be distraction because I might be wrong but this engagement thing looks suspicious now because there was no official announcement at the time of engagement as well as when it broke off. People assumed it broke off, none of her sisters relayed the news, for example, Sheikh Maryam confirmed engagement on Facebook as well as his fiancees name and mentioned something about couples photo-shoot as well.

Also, how are the relations between the two families after Sheikh Hamdan ended the engagement? Are the relations as normal as they were at the time when Sheikh Hamdan and Sheikha Shaikha were engaged? Are the girls/cousins still friends? According to what I have seen on Instagram and Facebook, it is super normal.

SORRY once again for bringing up the same subject. I posted because I suspect things back to normal i.e, Sheikh Hamdan and Sheikha Shaikha Bint Saeeds engagement thing.

The cancellation of an engagement is usually not officially announced.

Why should it be not normal????
