If you are a member of an affiliated British Riding Club and you and some friends from your Club would like to have a go at endurance, then why not get together to form an endurance team and enter the KBIS BRC Team Endurance Event The event is organised and hosted by Endurance GB.
Potential endurance competitors do not need any special equipment, particular breed or type of horse to get started. Only the rider, their horse and normal riding tack is required. Riders do not have to be members of Endurance GB in order to compete, but they must be current members of their affiliated Riding Club.
You can have as many teams in your Club as you like, but each team must be made up of at least three and a maximum of six combinations. The teams can compete at any EGB ride throughout the country. These are called “qualifying rides”. Team entries can be made at membership rates by registering as Club Members on the EGB website. A team who completes a qualifying ride successfully will have a team score entered into a League Table for the Region in which the Club is based. A team can then enter further qualifying rides with scores from subsequent qualifiers replacing that already in the League Table if it is higher than the existing score.
Please see below for more information on Club Membership.
The top teams throughout the country will be offered a place in the KBIS BRC Team Endurance Event Final at The Lion's Tail Ride on Sunday 18th September 2016. Some wild card places may also be offered at the discretion of the national organisers. There are cash prizes available for the top teams at the final (see "Prizes and Awards" below for more details).
Remember – you don’t have to enter the KBIS BRC Team Endurance Event necessarily with the aim of getting to the final. Why not just form a team or teams and just come along to some qualifying rides and enjoy a day out riding in the countryside. You can ride all together as a team, in pairs, or each team member can ride on their own – starting and finishing at different times.
The rules of the competition and full details of the KBIS BRC Team Endurance Event can be found on the Rules tab.
