Khartoum's Equestrian Club struggles amid Sudan upheaval
For decades the Equestrian and Racing Club has given upper-crust Sudanese the chance to learn horse riding and watch horse racing in a shady compound set apart from the surrounding urban bustle of the capital Khartoum. But the club has had to cut back activities since popular unrest erupted in December and led to the fall of autocratic President Omar al-Bashir in April, dampening high society life. Horse races were halted and attendance at equestrian classes dwindled after protests broke out in the dusty streets of Khartoum, with the loss of scores of lives as security forces cracked down.
