This event is cancelled due to the uncertainty around the recent equine flu outbreak. We will hope to run it as part of our summer programme instead.
A great day yesterday at Duchy. A very big thank you to our wonderful volunteer team for making the event run so smoothly (and so cheerfully) and a big thank you too to all combinations for taking part on quite a chilly day. Results below:
A big thank you to John and Jane Hudson who run the Endurance Riding Club Championships at Builth Wells and to Kieran O’Brien from Pembode Vets. Their talk on riding club endurance explained fully how Riding Club members can form a team to take part in a range of endurance events, build points based on time taken to complete an event and also on having your horse fit enough for them to give a low heart rate reading 30 minutes after the end of that event. We also heard about costs (greatly reduced for riding club members) and then we learnt about how to assess our own horses for fitness and how to get them ready for a season of endurance. Fascinating and our hope is now that we can build a pool of combinations who might like to try a few pleasure rides (16 or 24 kms) with the aim of moving on to one or two time trial events by the end of the season.
