CNN has been filming in the region this month, when the documentary ‘Winning Post’ showcased an unusual race of 160 km, the HH Sheik Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Endurance Cup, taking place at Dubai International Endurance City.

CNN's Francesca Cumani headed to the desert to meet with the horses, riders and trainers. With 40 percent of its registered riders being female, the sport is hugely popular amongst women. ‘Winning Post’ gathered with a small group of Emirati female riders and discussed the race as well as looking into how they took up the challenge of long distance racing.

RE: Endurance filming
Four years ago I wouldn't even have arrived in the UAE, so don't take it as a personal slight if I didn't cover your shoot. I can only apologise for my predecessors' slackness ;) Do feel free to invite me on any future ones though, or even just let us know about them if there's a good story there!

Endurance filming
Nice... But we filmed the endurance race about 4 years ago for Discovery Networks, although we never used the footage in the end, It looked nice, HD, lots of hot horses being bathed in ice water with steam coming off them, bright colours.. Where were you then Chris??!!
