Boudheib initiative supporting the Persik Trail in Camprieu

Camprieu, Cevennes, France. Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 August 2017.
70 endurance specialists & amateurs from seven countries (Iran, Belgium, Oman, Holland, Switzerland, Spain & France) took great pleasure traversing the Persik Trail, organised by Christele de Rosch and her team, in the region of the Cevennes in Southern France.

The conditions were perfect for participation in various ride distances including three main events ran over the 2 days involving a CEI3* 2 x 90km which was won by the inspirational Dutch 70-year-old Marly Van Ditzhuyzen with her home bred 15-year-old stallion Eenhoorn Dahman, CEI2* 2 x 70km and an Amateur Elite 2 x 70km.

The Boudheib Initiative, set in action by Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Sultan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, for the purpose of putting the welfare of the endurance horse at the forefront of the sport, has been delighted with the strong following of international riders and owners across Europe to date.

Endurance World Camprieu. Follow the sign.After the first day of the Persik Trail only five horses retired (three lame, one retired & a mild metabolic) and on Sunday morning all horses were in great shape to start their second day – a super result especially given the challenging terrain. Seven rides for professionals and amateurs alike were organised for Day two and there was no need to enforce the 20km/h Boudheib Initiative speed rule, which is really only reserved for the UAE, as no-one exceeded an average of 17km/h.
The CEI1* 80km was won by Ali Al Farsi – OMA (Khara El Nedj) with a 12-minute lead over May Manifacier – FRA (Orient Alcyon), who wasn’t in the top three after the first loop, with Laurent Mosti – FRA (Valenciana Larzac) in third.

In the CEI2* 120km for ladies Amandine Teyssedre – FRA (Durances Ranger) took the first place after the first loop and kept that position till the end.

Endurance World Camprieu. The oldest competitor.It was after halfway the race that Virginie Atger FRA (Leil de Jalima) took an option on the podium and finished in the second place. Third was for Karine Mabilon – FRA (Ulham Coco).

The riders in the CEI2* 12km took a careful start which resulted that the podium contenders were very closed matched for the first two loops.
In the third loop Adil Al Balushi – Oma (Saalam d’Olt) increased the speed and laid the foundation for the victory on the next day.
Danielle Ghyoros – FRA (Orient d’Ys) and Marilyn Lemoine – FRA (AS de Saint Andre) seemed to be evenly matched and this duel turned out in favour of Danielle.

There was only one starter in the CEI3* 160km Persik Trail but that didn’t take anything away from the achievement from the impressive Marly Van Ditzhuyzen – NED (Eenhoorn Dahman).

The BECA (Best Endurance Challenge Award) in the CEI3* was obviously for Marly Van Ditzuysen and the grey stallion Eenhoorn Dahman. In the CEI2* the BECA was for Saalam D’Olt ridden by Adil Al Balushi whilst in the CEI1* the award went to Khara El Nedj of Ali Al Farsi and in the ladies race Ulham Coco and Karine Mabilon were awarded.
