• After completing your distance you arrive back at finish line, call your number and collect your day card/ log book where you will find  your vet time …
• After strapping your horse please attend the vet ring at least 5 minutes before your vet time, late attendance to the vet ring may result in disqualification.  Your horse will be TPR’d  again before you go through the  vetting  procedure,  after trot out the vet will tell you if you have successfully completed…
Tips
• At any checkpoint,  you may call a float if you feel you or your horse cannot complete the course…Once back at ride base you and your horse must follow the same Vetting  procedure as if you had finished the course.

The Spirit of Endurance

Glenn Dix & Shaylen Park AllusionFrancesOverhue PosiedonMoon JoanneZielono Eleazar JMC

Our sport is not a glamorous one that will attract large spectator crowds. Nor is it one that will hold the interest of the person who is simply a fierce and good competitor. Such people have come and gone in the past as they no doubt will in the future.
Although we consider Endurance Riding as a sport, we know that it is something more. Our challenge is more than a test against course, clock and other competitors. It is a test of something deep within each of us - a test of our spirit, our compassion and our communication with a creature with whom we share our life during the long hours and miles of training and competition.
Having ridden many miles with competitors I respect, it is clear to me that what is almost a spiritual union exists between these riders and their horses. There is a oneness which transcends the usual human-animal relationships. The rider has a high degree of awareness towards his horse and this is returned by the horse.
We live in a world where young people are searching for values not always provided by the existing social structure. For many, an involvement with horses has brought the feeling of being closer to nature. The trusting, loving, working relationship between horse and human through the ages began to diminish as transportation and farming became mechanised. However, the relationship with horses is being renewed in leisure activities.
I would like to suggest that it is time to let people know what they can gain by becoming involved in Endurance Riding. There must be many young people who would add to our ride numbers once they became interested. So let us take the opportunity to spread the word about our sport, and hope they too can experience with their horses many hours of happy riding together.
