Riding Club Members Team Up for Endurance

Posted on Saturday, July 27, 2013 by Heather Dodd

Did you know that you can compete in Endurance GB events as a member of an affilated Riding Club Team? This is the fourth year that Endurance GB has offered this opportunity to affiliated Riding Clubs on a national scale, the main objective being to provide a way in which non-members can “have a go” at endurance in a supportive team environment.

Twenty teams will qualify for a place for the prestigious final held at the British Horse Feeds Red Dragon Festival of Endurance at Builth Wells on 6th October 2013. To be eligible you simply have to create a team from Riding Club members. This year’s event is once again being sponsored by KBIS who will be donating prize money totalling £600.

Riding Clubs are invited to enter endurance teams of three to six combinations into any number of EGB or SERC qualifying rides of 30 to 35km. Riders do not have to be members of EGB or SERC in order to compete, but they must be members of their affiliated Riding Club. Each combination in a team must be declared to the national organisers before they enter any qualifiers. Riding Club teams can enter the qualifiers and the final at membership rates, with a discount for five or more combinations.

Why not ask your own club about the possibilities of creating a team, and discover Endurance for yourself.

For more information  visit or call the national organisers, Jane and John Hudson, on 01398 332089.
