Because then they wouldn't be CAMEL jockeys, they would be HORSE jockeys. And there is a huge difference between the two.
Horses are faster in short stretches. If the race was long over the desert, then camels would win.
nope, cause a zebra is half horse and horses are fasters than camels
yes they do
Jockeys. And who ever else that wants to.
Camels are not allowed to drive Land Rovers, even in Dubai. The only vehicles allowed to race in camel races are camels.
The trainers actually approach the jockeys about riding their horses, but if a jockey is offered multiple mounts for the same race, the jockey chooses based on which one he thinks has the best chance of winning.
Hanicapping is a complicated method which is practiced in racehorses to try and make the race more even. The best horses will be given the highest weight to carry, and the more inferior horses will carry less, the aim is too make the race more even chanced, although usually the best horses will do best because they will have the best jockeys, and probably very light jockeys.
No, they are not. Camels are passive animals which peacefully co-habit with humans just like cows and horses. Matter of fact, camels are used to transport people and supplies over deserts, just like a horse does on normal land. Because camels can survive longer without water in harsher environments than horses. They also provide milk, just like cows. Camels are peaceful animals which cohabit alongside humans and help the human race to prosper. The only real danger from a camel is if you threaten a young or baby camel, the herd or mother will charge at you and kick you with their powerful legs to protect the young.
There are no thoroughbred race jockey lists available online. You can search them individually by name or by horse's name. There are lists of celebrities who have thoroughbred horses.
This is an oldie but a goodie. They each mount the other son's camel. This way, they want to beat the other camel because it's the one tied to their fortune.
The poles are there for the jockeys' to know how far they are from the finish line. They are also used by trainers to clock a horses racing fractions.
