ENDURANCE GB REVIEW FINDINGSENDURANCE GB REVIEW FINDINGS - (Published:06 August 2018)

Endurance GB has completed both an internal process and external legal review following the withdrawal of GBR athlete Charlotte Chadwick from the FEI European Endurance Championship for Young Riders.  

The findings of this review have confirmed that, in cases such as this, primary responsibility for eligibility is placed upon the rider; and Charlotte Chadwick’s entry to the European Championships for Young Riders was accepted and facilitated on the basis she was qualified to compete as per FEI rules. EGB does not therefore bear liability for the events surrounding Charlotte’s withdrawal. 

 The review has also found that no fault lies with the Technical Stewards at any of the events that Charlotte or her mother participated in during the lead up to the European Championships. 

However, the review has also identified that improvements can be made to our systems and procedures to ensure they are helpful and minimise the risks of situations like this happening again. In the interests of responsible custodianship of our sport and our members, the organisation today outlines new measures to support our commitment to ensuring the highest standards of vigilance and to remove ambiguity with immediate effect. These include:

 · Robust eligibility checks to be made mandatory as part of the selection process of international team members by the Team Chef or appropriate member of the Team Management, monitored consistently from selection through to competition.

 · The introduction of a new automated rest period audit process for all ride results, which will enable potential breaches of rest periods to be identified.

· Expanding the results spreadsheets used by Technical Stewards to automatically include the current FEI registration status of the horse, which will reduce the risk of a FEI horse being allocated an EGB rest period. 

It is not possible at this time to automatically calculate rest periods at the entry stage, and the onus remains on the riders to ensure that they are eligible to compete.  

EGB will also take steps to underline that riders are responsible for compliance with all relevant regulations by implementing a new disclaimer on all ride entries, to indicate understanding of rules regarding eligibility, and to accept EGB, BEF or FEI regulations. 

Whilst we reiterate that EGB is not liable for the unfortunate set of circumstances that prompted the introduction of these new measures, we nonetheless welcome the opportunity to review processes across the sport. It is our firm belief that this swift and affirmative response will lead to improved standards for all. 

We would like to underscore our clear understanding that Charlotte, and her family, hold both horse welfare and the rules of Endurance with the upmost of importance and rules were broken completely unintentionally. The EGB Board is immensely proud of all our Young Riders and everything they have achieved and we are hugely disappointed for Charlie, who is a talented ambassador for our sport.

Boyton Hall (The Lavenham Ride) - 1st and 2nd SeptemberBoyton Hall (The Lavenham Ride) - 1st and 2nd September - (Published:29 July 2018)

Don’t miss this lovely ride!!!......please note ride distances have been checked again and again!

 

Ride entries are open; the route distances have been checked (and checked again). Agreed - there have been problems with distances in the past, but I have been round (and round, and round) measuring the distances with my Garmin.

 

The route is looking stunning, mile after mile of beautiful countryside, glowing in the summer sunshine. We have just had rain: who knows what September will bring, but the countryside will still look lovely! It is one of the most inviting routes I have seen. And remember, there is very little roadwork! Shame I can’t enter the ride!

 

And to add to charm of this ride there will be a bit of a party on Saturday night. Food provided free of charge for all, by that charming little caterer, Waitrose, with wine, beer or soft drinks at truly minimal prices.

 

Temporary stabling is available. All the Boyton Hall stables are full, so please ring our ride secretary (Elaine Wallbridge) on 01440 785835 or 07771 770912 to book your stable.

 

If you want information about the ride or need to ask any questions, please look at the Lavenham ride Facebook page. Using Facebook means we can respond to you straight away, and also means that you can post your comments.

 

And lastly, because of an oversight, there is no 80km GER on the schedule. This is being amended as we speak.

 

Look forward to seeing lots of you on either or both the 1st or 2nd September!

 

(Heather Weston – RO)

Young Rider European Championship Entry Withdrawn for Charlie Chadwick and Hazelcroft Gosens TsarYoung Rider European Championship Entry Withdrawn for Charlie Chadwick and Hazelcroft Gosens Tsar - (Published:23 July 2018)

Endurance GB is saddened to confirm the withdrawal of Charlie Chadwick and Hazelcroft Gosens Tsar from the 2018 European Young Rider Endurance Championships due to take place on the 25th and 26th July.

 

Endurance GB was made aware of a potential rule violation in relation to rest periods and a horse Charlie had competed with at the CEI Kings Forest (GBR) on the 7th July. The horse in question, Aragorn, had been ridden by Charlie’s mother, Ruth Chadwick, in a National Ride some two weeks beforehand where the horse had been judged to have an irregular gait at the finish. As Aragorn is registered with the FEI (Fédération Equestre Internationale), he is subject to FEI rest periods even whilst competing at a National Level. Under FEI rules this would entail an enforced rest period of 12 days had the horse completed successfully however, in this case, an additional 14 days must be added to the imposed rest period due to the irregular gait decision, which ends after the date of the CEI Kings Forest (GBR). This means that as per FEI Art. 815.3.3 and 815.3.6, Charlie will receive 100 penalty points and a consequential suspension of two months (to be implemented from the day of the CEI in question). Endurance GB carried out its own due diligence as quickly as possible in relation to the information, bearing in mind the timings and the seriousness and required escalations of the situation.

 

Endurance GB is very clear that this was a genuine mistake on behalf of the athlete. Charlie has, and will continue to be, an exemplary ambassador for the sport of Endurance within Great Britain and she, and her family, have the full backing of EGB at this very difficult time. At no point was there any intention to break the rules and we must make it very clear that Charlie, and her family, hold both horse welfare and the rules of Endurance with the upmost of importance.

 

Ruth Chadwick, Charlie’s mother, commented ‘This has been incredibly hard for us. Charlie, and the rest of the team, have received so much support and encouragement and we are just so sad to be in the situation we are now. Charlie has worked so hard to get herself and her horse ready for this Championship. However, we accept that we broke the rules and this should never have happened. The timing of this whole thing though has been particularly unfortunate as had we realised earlier we would never have taken the decision to travel Tsar overseas.’

 

Nicki Thorne, Chair of Endurance GB, stated ‘We are, of course, incredibly sad for Charlie, Tsar and her family. We are all fully aware of the amount of work and dedication it takes to get your horse to this level. We admire the maturity and attitude of both Charlie and her family in this situation and they have our full support. The Chadwick Family is held in very high regard within the Endurance GB family, but we also recognise that the rules, in this instance, were broken and we must therefore accept the consequences. We are in regular contact with all those concerned and we are ensuring that the right levels of support and safeguarding are in place not just for Charlie, but the other members of the team who will continue on their Championship journey’.

 

Kate Atkinson and Ollie Holman will now represent Great Britain as individuals at the European Young Rider Endurance Championships. Pre-Ride vetting takes place on the 25th July and the Championship itself starts at 6am on Friday 26th July. Endurance GB wishes the very best of luck to Kate and Ollie and we are extremely confident that they will do us proud and be excellent representatives for Great Britain.

RETIREMENT OF CIRENCESTER ORGANISERS - LONG SERVICE RECOGNISEDRETIREMENT OF CIRENCESTER ORGANISERS - LONG SERVICE RECOGNISED - (Published:18 July 2018)

Alan and Jacqui Brown have been associated with the organisation of the Cirencester Ride for many years, initially with the Leicester Group when the ride was called the Avon Valley Ride and was run with Brenda Campbell and Sue Oakes: the Campbells and the Browns also ran the Monks Kirby Ride for a number of years.  


In due course the Cirencester Festival of Endurance evolved and they took over as sole organisers. After many years of dedicated service to the ride and to Endurance generally, they are now taking a well-earned retirement. 

 
At the end of yet another successful event last weekend the Heart of England Group presented Alan and Jacqui with a retirement gift of a decanter and bottle of wine while EGB presented them with a bottle of champagne and a bouquet of flowers.  Alan and Jacqui will be missed but have more than earned their retirement!

Endurance GB confirms resignation of Board Member Kerry DawsonEndurance GB confirms resignation of Board Member Kerry Dawson - (Published:11 July 2018)

Endurance GB is saddened to confirm the resignation of Kerry Dawson, who at the time of her resignation held the positions of Groups Director, Para-Equestrian Director, Director of Volunteering and Health & Safety Director.

Kerry was a very active member of the EGB Board for more than three years, initially starting as IT Director and then moving to Groups Director where her portfolio continued to grow. There is no doubt that Kerry’s commitment to the sport and the improvements and changes she achieved as a Director have been second to none and have had a hugely positive impact on so very many of us. During her time on the Board, Kerry, amongst other things, had forged forward with a Volunteering Strategy, reviewed and revised the Para-Equestrian Endurance rules improving the accessibility of the sport and was also hugely influential in increasing the number of qualified first aiders across the organisation. Kerry has confirmed that she won’t be going far; she will continue to act as a Ride Organiser and volunteer and will no doubt continue to be an extremely familiar face within our Endurance family. The Board, on behalf of Endurance GB and its members, wishes to extend its sincere thanks to Kerry for everything she has given to the sport and wishes her well for all her future endeavours. Kerry’s committees and workload will be split across the Board and alternative resources until the 2018 AGM where the vacant Board Position will be open for nominations in addition to the other end of term vacancies as per standard protocol.

Lowther Castle (Ullswater) ride cancellationLowther Castle (Ullswater) ride cancellation - (Published:11 July 2018)

Endurance GB is saddened to have to announce the cancellation of the Lowther Castle (Ullswater) ride. Unfortunately, due to prior commitments for the tenancy and occupation of the land we have just been informed by the Estate Operations Director that we are no longer able to use the land that had been put aside for the ride venue.

The Cumbria Ride Committee and many others working behind the scenes have tried extremely hard to make this work, negotiating with the Estate and trying to find an alternative venue but to no avail. We are acutely aware of the importance of this ride, from both a National and FEI perspective and as such we are now focusing our efforts on finding another suitable Northern venue to host the same level of classes on an alternative date. Endurance GB would like to extend its sincere thanks to those who have put in so much effort to date to try and get this exciting ride off the ground – we are hopeful it may still be a possibility for the 2019 Calendar. Refunds for all those who have already entered will be processed over the coming week.

ENDURANCE GB CROWNS 2018 YOUNG RIDER NATIONAL CHAMPIONENDURANCE GB CROWNS 2018 YOUNG RIDER NATIONAL CHAMPION - (Published:11 July 2018)

PRESS RELEASE: ENDURANCE GB CROWNS 2018 YOUNG RIDER NATIONAL CHAMPION 10 July 2018. The British Young Rider National Championships took place this past weekend at Kings Forest, Thetford, in some of the toughest conditions seen so far this year.

Endurance GB is extremely proud to announce that the 2018 Young Rider National Champion is Endurance GB Spotlight Scholar, Ella Bunting, who rode Emma Daniel's Aly’s Estrella de Rock to victory last Saturday. The combination successfully completed the CEIYJ2* 120km ride at King’s Forest (GBR) in what can only be described as extremely challenging conditions. With temperatures well over 30 degrees centigrade, excellent horsemanship and understanding were required by all riders competing across the entire field of classes.

The Young Rider Championships was a closely fought affair throughout the day. Five of the entrants in the CEIYJ2* were eligible to compete for the coveted title. In the initial stages the British contingent was dominated by Charlie Chadwick (GBR) partnered by Aragorn, Charlie’s mother’s 14 year old Arab gelding. Chadwick sat in second place behind the class leader Hamdan Ahmed Mohd Al Marri (UAE) with a comfortable nine minute lead over 3rd and 4th placed Bunting and Katie Bedwin (GBR) respectively.

As the day progressed the extreme conditions took their toll with two combinations failing to qualify for their next respective stages. British rider Keighley Pomroy’s ambitions were dashed at Vet Gate Two where her horse Hathek was judged to have an irregular gait. Despite Chadwick’s early success her day was cut short at the fourth Vet Gate, just 16km from the finish, where Aragorn also failed to qualify for the final stage due to an irregular gait. This left the competition wide open between the three remaining British riders. Bunting left on to the final loop with a two minute lead over Bedwin, with Harry Ollis (GBR) riding Kirsty Wiscombe’s homebred bay mare, Yawl Hill Pollyanna, a further nine minutes behind. 

Bunting and Bedwin rode the last loop together, as they had done the entire ride leading up to that point, ensuring their horses had company and were well motivated for the final stage. However, it was Ollis who put in the quickest final loop at 15.4kph – he successfully created a four minute lead over his compatriots, crossing the finish line in 2nd place behind 1st placed Al Marri (UAE), who had completed the course nearly two hours beforehand. However, Ollis’ joy was short lived as Yawl Hill Pollyanna was judged to be lame at the final vetting. Bunting and Bedwin crossed the finish line together, hand in hand, having tackled the tough course together all day – the perfect display of camaraderie, sportsmanship and support with just one second separating the pair’s final result. Both combinations passed the final vetting and the 2018 National Champion and Reserve Champion were crowned!

Various other classes took place over the weekend at the popular Thetford venue. Nicki Thorne, Chair of Endurance GB, said: “Special thanks to all those involved in ensuring a smooth and successful event despite the extremely testing conditions; the ride organising committee, the volunteers and officials, and of course, ongoing support from HPower Endurance and event sponsor Meydan.” 

Amongst many other things participants were treated to, top class veterinary services, unlimited ice and a very tasty barbeque for all in attendance on the Saturday evening.

Notes to editors

About Endurance GB

Endurance GB is the National Governing Body for the sport of Endurance Riding. It encompasses 23 local Groups throughout England and Wales who organise social events and rides from 8km (5miles) which are non-competitive or social/training rides, right up to 160km competitive rides (100 miles) for the most advanced horse and rider - we pride ourselves on offering a full calendar of events for every level and ambition of rider.

About Spotlight Scholarship Scheme

This year Endurance GB introduced the inaugural Spotlight Scholarship Scheme as well as the first 10 scholars. The ethos behind the Spotlight Scholarship Scheme is welfare of the Young and Junior Rider and their horse/s through training and education. Education is the route to both welfare and success. The scholarship provides a riding lesson every month with a UKCC coach or BHS Accredited Professional Coach. It gives the scholars the opportunity to pursue the BHS Complete Horsemanship qualification or, in the case of Juniors, start/continue their education through the Pony Club. The scheme was designed to support all levels of rider.

BEF invites applications for second Young Professional ProgrammeBEF invites applications for second Young Professional Programme - (Published:29 June 2018)

The British Equestrian Federation (BEF) is inviting applications for the second cohort of its Young Professional Programme. The 12 month programme is made up of eight workshops and covers a range of areas including business management, business operations, media awareness, personal development and career enhancement.

Funded by Sport England, and in collaboration with British Dressage, British Eventing and British Showjumping, the Young Professional Programme supports young athletes who are looking to develop and acquire skills that will help them to continue working in the equine industry. Head of Performance Pathways at the BEF, David Hamer says: “After the first cohort having completed their year on this new programme, we are looking forward to welcoming more athletes onto the next intake this Autumn. We have had a very confident group this year who have all gone on to develop business plans that will help them focus on the areas they would like to develop as they go out into the industry.“The aim of this Programme is to help guide young athletes through what can be an uncertain time in their sporting career, particularly as they set themselves up in business. The Programme builds on the great work that has already been done by the Olympic disciplines in this area to support them to go on and hopefully have a thriving future.”Re-capping on his experience on the Programme, eventer Alexander Tordoff said: “Over the last 12 months we have covered pretty much every aspect of running a yard; from the financial side to the performance related area, it’s really helped improve my business.”Showjumper, Georgia Leader-White added: “Being on the Programme has allowed me to meet new people from different industries and pick up ideas that I can take back and try out. I am in the middle of doing my UKCC Level 3 and I would now like to push my coaching even further.”Outlining her plans for the future, dressage rider Amy Schiessl said: “Thanks to the Young Professional Programme I am now looking to set up a yard on my own which I probably wouldn’t have done without this support before. I am really aware of what I need to do around insurance and health and safety and I can’t wait to put my new skills into practice.”The Young Professional Programme is open to athletes aged 19-26 who are not in full-time education.  Applications will open on 1 July and will close on 31 July 2018. More information can be found on the BEF website under the Young Professional Programme Page

Note from the Chef: 

Well done to all those selected you have earned your place. 

Each competitor has competed in an EGB national ride in 2018 prior to selection. 

Members were recruited for the Team in a few ways : by using social media adverts, by emailing all our group members and by myself and assistant Delwyn chatting to competitors directly at events and by word of mouth. When we had expressions of interest in I then asked individuals what distance they would prefer. With this information in hand I study form using the EGB website, both current and previous years of both riders and horses. I prioritise completions, experience over that specific distance, type of class e.g. CER or GER / one or two day and use my experience to put together a team that I believe can deliver a solid result, have some fun and encourage novice competitors in the sport. 

In it to win it, no pressure Team 😎

BHS Ride Out UK MonthBHS Ride Out UK Month - (Published:25 June 2018)

We know that many of you were following the BHS Ride Out UK Month, and we have great news! Firstly, the campaign has raised almost £9,000 this year for Paths for Communities and still have a few events to come! More than 2,000 people have taken part in the events and sponsored hacking challenges which is over double the number of people who took part last year. A brilliant step forward.
 

And, as if that wasn’t enough, Endurance GB is very proud to announce that two of the winners from the campaign are EGB members! Megan Seedhouse, an EGB young rider, won the ‘most kilometres ridden in May’ competition, completing 251.39km with her pony Daisy. Secondly, Vicky Hodgkiss was not only the first rider to complete the 70km challenge but she was also the winner of the highest fundraiser (18 years and over) competition. Both will be receiving a Thorowgood saddle! Well done to Daisy and Vicky!
 
The BHS are pleased to announce that they are extending their 70km challenge to run for the rest of this year, so the challenge remains to saddle up and ride 70km and raise £70 for Paths for Communities. If any of you are looking to ‘give back’ to the bridleways you love to ride then this is a great challenge to have a go at, as the donations go directly towards improving or creating equestrian routes throughout the UK.

The FEI Bureau has confirmed that the FEI European Endurance Championship 2019 will take place at Great Britain’s 200-acre Euston Park venue, set in Thetford Forest from the 15th to 18th August 2019.

Endurance GB is delighted to confirm that the application for Euston Park (GBR) to host the European Endurance Championships 2019 has been announced as the winning bid. The FEI (Fédération Equestre Internationale) issued a Press Release on Wednesday 20th June confirming various Championship allocations in 2019 and 2020 following the decision of the FEI Bureau. Full details on the FEI Press Release can be found here.

Hosting the European Championships will present a unique opportunity for the sport of endurance riding in Great Britain and the Championship Organisers, HPower Endurance. EGB is confident that this will deliver a strong and concrete legacy for the sport going forward. Having this Championship ‘on the doorstep’ will make competing at such a level tangible for the many EGB members, both Senior and Young Rider, looking to step up on to the International scene.

Event Director, Nick Brooks-Ward, commented “We are delighted with this announcement.  We are about to start our third summer of rides at Euston Park and we believe that the previous two years have given us the opportunity to bring together a team which has the experience, knowledge and expertise to get the very best out of this stunning venue.  We have already started work on the Championships”.

Nicki Thorne, added, “We look forward to giving a very warm welcome to endurance nations from across Europe who will send their elite athletes to compete in the European Championships in what will be the highlight of a spectacular festival of endurance in an iconic location”.

Euston Park is set within the beautiful Suffolk countryside and will give riders from across the continent the chance to take in magnificent historic parkland, ancient forests, woodlands and river crossings – all on well-maintained tracks with minimal roadwork. An incredible experience for athletes, spectators and endurance fans alike.
