The dutch team didn't finish. Two horses were retired during the race, one dutch rider (they only had 3 members in the team) finished with a 37th place.

I know there was another topic about speed and endurance... anyway, at this world championship, the world record for 160 km was beaten again. The first four riders all came in at an average speed of 22 km/hour or more, whilst the record was set (only last year) at 21.82 km/hour

For belgium there were 5 participating riders, and 4 got to the finish. Takhar was unfortunatly out of the race, as he was not admitted to start by the vets. :

32th place Liesens Leonard with Orfeo 16.96 km/h - Orfeo is a purebred arabian, straight polish, bred by Haras d'Iviers (the big endurance stud in Belgium) by of their foundation sire Pedant (Gondolier) out of Opala (Habor)
33th place Boulanger Karin with Allel 16.96 km/h - Allel is a purebred arabian by world champion stallion Warandes Plakat out of Elina (Numizmat) : Russian with a dash of English
35 th place Boulanger Jacques with Shannon 16.58 km/h - Shannon is a cross from arabian with a trotter
36 th place Molitor Jean-Louis with Fidji 16.58 km/h - partbred arabian by Zatin el Usm (Kilimanjaro)
on 188 inscriptions and 175 staters. Only 55 riders got to the finish (only a third !!!)

Would some transpose the speed into mph for me? And, of the other horses that did not finish, were there any reasons or stats given as to why they did not finish?

Not trying to start any wars; I am merely asking a question.

To convert kms to mph mutiply the kms by .60. When I watched the 2002 ride in Qatar, the vet. checks were very strict, which is why most horses don't make the distance.

Wow is it for sure Canada placed fourth? One of our club members is with the Canadian Team, Myna Cryderman. Anyone know if she rode, if so were she placed or did she finish?
