Dubai Camel racing is a famous sport in several parts of the world, ranging from North Africa to Australia, and it’s a very famous tourist attraction in Dubai.

Camels have always been beloved animals by the Arabs and were considered prized possessions, as they provided transportation, food and sometimes a bargaining chip. This love has reached present days, with many camel farms still present across the country.

Camel racing in UAE

Camel racing in UAE was born from the desire to keep this heritage alive, since in the old days camel races were mainly witnessed during special events or ceremonies like weddings.

However, this activity at the camel racing track has a troubled history: up until early 2000s, camels were ridden by young children barely old enough to stand on their feet. Many of them were trafficked from other countries and forced to live in camel farms under inhumane conditions. This happened because professional camels need lightweight riders in order to be faster and children were deemed the ideal jockeys for the races. At the time, the average age of camel jockeys was between 2-10 years old and many of them died during the races or were permanently disabled from falling off the animals.

 

In 2002, after great pressure from the international community, Dubai banned people under 18 from participating on the camel racing track. Despite the ban, there have been instances where child jockeys were still found racing in later years.
