Info

A young boy jockey heads out for morning camel training at the Nad Al Sheba racecourse in Dubai with his breakfast snack of soda pop, chips, and candy. Although the practice of using children has been banned and declared illegal since 2002, young children from poor countries are still being used as jockeys because of their light weight and low cost.
