Endurance riding challenges the ability of a team of horse and rider to traverse diverse natural terrain against the clock over distances of up to 160 kilometres.
It is a unique equestrian sport through which groups and entire families can ride together in a beautiful environment while still competing as individuals.
Please note: Given the current Covid-19 pandemic, all rides have been cancelled at this time. Normal service will be resumed as soon as it is safe to do so. We are still hoping to host our October events and will look to include other events on the calendar as soon as the government confirms we are able to resume our activities.
In the interim, please stay safe and we look forward to seeing you later in the year.
