Camel racing is a hugely popular pastime across The UAE. Controversially riders were traditionally small boys, some as young as four, sold into the international slave trade by desperate families as well as kidnappers. Most of these children come from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Sudan. New rules in 2002 prevent riders under the age of 14 of competing in The UAE, however violations do continue.
