Endurance riding is shared in the family as Mohammed became interested in the sport after seeing the success his brother. In 2001, after his brother Khalid won his first championship, Mohammed made the decision to begin endurance riding. Although he was playing football at the Al Saad Sports Club, he began endurance training. After five months, in 2002, he competed in his first race and finished fourth. Following that success, Mohammed decided to give up organized football to fully concentrate on endurance riding.
