Salomo Djinti at rest halveway the race. One of the most important things during a (big) race is the way the horse feels and most important is the horse eating and drinking well. !!!!!  If there are problems with these during the first rest, you really make sure that You have to try to get him there because with problems at the beginning you  and your horse will never gone a make it. The start has to be good otherwise forget about it, I can tell you for sure.
From all these Djintie was eating and drinking very well at every rest.  It gives  the crew and the rider a happy feeling.

You can compare the 100 mile     (160 km) endurance ride with a  Formule 1 car-race.
Everyting has to be at the right place with a complete team of people. At the right moment you have to work on it otherwise forget about it. Djinti at rest and checked by myself and watched bu several supervisors which keep attention at the timetable
Princess Haya wife of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid AL Maktoum starting here after vetgate 3 and riding for her Country Jordan.
She did not finish but showed her enormous karakter because of her way of riding during most of the race (out of the saddle) 
The vetgate was unbelievable on green green grass in the middle of desert sand. All the vets were protected for the sunlight and all the vets were always changing their places so every horse and rider got the same chance.
Two enourmous bodygards at the entrance of each vetgate,  looked at every card so nobody was entering without permission.
Tinneke Bartels gives some advise to Joan before she left the rest nr 4. Both husband Joep and Tinneke showed great interest in the endurance discipline and after a car-ride with the FEI Tecnical Delelgate  following Sheikh Mohammed at the track they were even more impressed in the top performance Endurance riding is. You must have karakter if you are one of the richest people in the world and you are showing such a strong behaviour in riding more then 12 hours on horse back with an average speed of more then 20 km /hour. !!!!!!!
Isn`t that something !!!!!!!!!!!!
Salomo Djinti at the finish and just after he got the sign "passed" At the last vetcheck (after 160 km ) you only have one check option. Ther is no second chance. So we had to make sure that evrything was really oke. Gut sounds, haertrate, mucous  membranes, gait, etc etc.
Weldone after a long day and 160 km in all your legs and ready for going home to the stableyard  He is still interesting in everyting what`s around.
The winning horse at a rest. In a  very good shape all the time. Unbelievable fresh and that with a new World Record 160 km in 7 hours and 3 minutes.
