Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games Kentucky 2010 Endurance
"One hundred riders set out on the 160 km ride across the Kentucky countryside at dawn on the morning after the opening ceremony and riders from the United Arab Emirates team would dominate the team competition with three of them finishing in the first 8 home.
In the individual competition HE Sheikh Mohammed, husband of FEI President Princess Haya, decided it was in the best interests of his UAE team that he rode as an individual and he would secure the silver medal after dropping to 14th at the second vetgate.
However nobody could live with the reigning World and European champions Maria Mercedes Alvarez Ponton and her hugely durable 15 yr old French bred gelding Nobby. They lead from the third vetgate and steadily increased their lead through the rest of the ride to finish over a minute in fron tof HE Sheikh Mohammed riding the 7 yr old Ciel Oriental. This victory by the Spanish rider was achieved just 7 weeks after she gave birth to a daughter."
