Royal flair in the Hessian Ried
Prince from Oman wins My Akhalteke Cup 2016.
H.H. Loay bin Ghalib al Said gave this year's "My Akhalteke Cup 2016" in the Hessian Ried a royal touch. The prince, who had travelled from Oman, started on 03.09.2016 with the Achal-Tekkiner gelding "Alridan" on the 82 km course.

The fact that H.H. Loay bin Ghalib al Said and his team had a lot of fun with the sporting challenge and the beautiful route was clearly visible during the ride and when they entered the line at around 2.30 pm.

Together with Dina Seipp (on Al Najma Apoll) and Katharina Becker (on Kuban), the Prince from Oman rode to the finish line as the winner. H.H. Loay bin Ghalib al Said and his Achal-Tekkiner Alridan thus secured the "My Achalteke Cup 2016" in the Hessian Ried.
As the Prince had to return to his residence in Mainz early, the Cup presentation was brought forward. Visibly delighted, H.H. Loay bin Ghalib al Said accepted the trophy donated by E.A.A.T-European Association of Akhal-Teke as this year's winner of the "My Akhalteke Cup 2016 - Hessisches Ried" and thanked him for the great event. We also say THANK YOU and look forward to seeing you again at the "My Akhalteke Cup Tour 2017".

A total of almost 40 riders took part on 03.09.2016 - on the different distances (82, 40 and 41 km). After all the riders and their horses had reached the finish line at around 6 p.m., the participants were able to receive their "reward" for their efforts. At the "official" award ceremony, the stable plaques specially made by E.A.A.T. and of course - for the winners in the individual categories - the trophies and winners' ribbons were handed over.

Here are all the winners at a glance:
