Camel racing is a sport that is particularly popular in Australia, the Middle East and Africa. It is a big spectator sport and betting is a big part of it.

Camel racing is an exteremly popular spectator sport but due to some unscrupulous owners the sport has been tarnished by reports of child exploitation. As a result robot jockeys have been introduced to put an end to this exploitation

Although there are accosionally shows and festivals in the UK where you can observe camel racing, the majority of races take place abroad.

Child jockeys as young as four years old have traditionally been used in the sport and the smaller or lighter the person the better.

Lighter jockeys are at an extreme advantage in the sport of camel racing in the same way they are in the sport of horse racing.

Camel racing is a deep-rooted traditional sport that finds its origins in the desert culture of the Arabian Peninsula, North Africa, and the Middle East. Beyond providing transportation, food, and shelter, the camel also served as a means of entertainment, celebration, and competition on festivals and special occasions. Races would take place at such events and were generally more for show than competition. Competitive races would usually take place as a result of a challenge among camel owners.

Camel racing is a must for outdoor entertainment venues and would be suitable for indoor arenas too. The public loves these appealing but mysterious mammals that are capable of surviving in such harsh climates as the Sahara and Siberia. The ship of the desert provides a superb attraction that draws the crowds to any event. Jockeys should all be experienced riders trained to get the best out of the camels.
