Equine Endurance ...

16th March, 2024.

On Friday the 8th of March the North and East Yorkshire branch of Endurance GB held an 'Introduction to Endurance' talk that proved highly popular, at Thirsk Auction Mart.

Endurance horse riding enables people of all ages to ride across the countryside covering distances of approximately 5km all the way through to 160km (100miles) in a day.

This event gave those who are thinking about joining a taste of what to expect and it was open to both children and adults across the whole of Yorkshire.

The night involved lots of discussion and interactive activities led by members of the committee as well as details about upcoming rides.

These include a Pony Club Easter ride (open to all ages with Easter eggs for all) a local and national ride in Cropton and a two-day ride in the moors with a pub as it's venue in May.

It was a sold out event that had hugely positive feedback from those who attended as well as interest for such events in the future from those who were unable to get tickets.
