Endurance Riding


Before trains and motorised transport, only 'endurance riders' travelled any distance from home!

Now, endurance riding challenges horse and rider and tests both the fitness and stamina of the horse and the horse management skills of the rider/groom.  The sport started in Australia and the USA - then spread to Europe, South Africa and the Middle East.

Competitions start at around 15 miles and at senior level may cover 100 miles or more.  Rigorous veterinary checks are in place - along the route and at completion.  Pure and part-bred Arabians are particularly suited to this demanding sport.
