Has the Sheikh ever not won a race he has entered? Is the woman riding in his group one of his daughters? She is seen in both the video and photos.

Winning is in his blood and no, she isnt his daughter. She and her husband work for Sheikh Mohammeds Godolphin stable if i know. She is Spanish.

For your statistic: in 2012 Godolphin participated in 720 races worldwide, only 136 they won. Thats a strike rate of 18,88889 %. They win "only" a fifth of all horse races. Current as of today

Very nice! I loved the video! The horses in the video look to be Spanish, the ones performing the tricks. Perhaps they are Lusitanos or Andalusians.

I looked at the video and the grey horses looked like Lipizzaners to me. They are bred at Lipica in Slovenia and used at the Spanish Riding School of Vienna, mostly. My grandmother visited the stud and brought me back lots of stuff

Lusitanos are Portuguese not Spanish, sorry. Some years ago now I was lucky enough to get to see a display by a trainer of Lusitanos at the indoor riding school in the Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace. It was wonderful. The guest of honour was the Portuguese ambassador.

The Lipizzaner used in the Spanish Riding School in Vienna are bred in Piber which is in Styria/ Austria! They are bred there since the abolishment of the Monarchy since Lipizza is now Slovenia.

Princess Haya is patronizing the Spanish Riding School in Vienna so it might be they agreed to lend some horses for the Show but to me the horses in the video look rather like white Arabic horses.
Lipizzaners have a special body frame,their head is shaped in a different way and most of them are not completely white (which you will see when you watch them live or close-up),the riders of the SRS also wear a particular uniform which looks different from what they wear in the video.
Another tell-tale sign:Arabic horseowners prefer to feed their horses only as much as needed while European horses tend to have a little bit of "a belly" because they can eat as much as they desire.(It is believed they are fitter and more agile if they are not overeating.)

But I could be wrong,I would be indeed very proud if they had used Viennese-trained horses at the Endurance World Championship ceremony!

Horse Country Endurance Cup held in Sardinia, Italy 2013

Team UAE make a clean sweep to clinch Endurance Cup honours in Italy this year. With competitors from the UAE, Italy, Spain, Great Britain and Algeria all vying for the top spot, it was the strength and agility of Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum`s horses that proved winner worthy:
