Camel Racing

We found a new sport for all of you to consider.  Move over horse back riding - hello, camel riding! Camel Racing is a huge sport in the Middle East, Australia, and Mongolia and is becoming increasingly popular in parts of England. It is similar to horse racing in that one can bet on each race and it is a growing tourist attraction.  The camels and the jockeys, wear colorful outfits in Arab style to add pizazz to the event. Aside from the racing, the camels are also on display all day so people can meet these interesting animals and learn more about them.  So, think about how you would dress your camel on race day and may the best camel win.
