WHAT IS "ENDURANCE GB" ?

Endurance GB is the governing body for the sport of Endurance (Competitive Long Distance) Riding Great Britain,  formulating the rules and organising rides to cater for all levels of ability, whether you simply want to compete
occasionally at local events or aim eventually for top class and international competition. We provide and manage well over 100 events a year for members of the Association riding registered horses and ponies as well as many social and pleasure rides, to encourage non-members.
