there is a group who disputes their vet care, saying that VETnet has nothing to do with the race, never sent any trained vets out, that they don't have equipment etc. This group contests the race because they think there isnt enough done on the horses side.
However, the horses used belong to the local nomadic tribes, who have their own trained, and practicing vets out at their stopping stations. The horses are returned to the tribes, or to their herds after the race. I doubt the tribes would sacrifice part of their livelihood for foreigners to race.
In my opinion, the group protexting is doing about the same as PETA does to rodeo.
