Update for the 2018 season

Welcome to the British Horse Feeds' BRC Endurance Team Event website.

Summary of Rule Changes for 2018

1.    This year, the final for the Team Championship will be at the British Horse Feeds’ Red Dragon Festival of Endurance at the Royal Welsh Showground in Builth Wells, Powys on Sunday 30th September.

2.    All Riding Club members will now need to register with Endurance GB as Associate Members.  As before, they will also be able to enter graded rides at members rates as an RC member when they are competing in a team of at least three and a maximum of six.  Entering graded rides at membership rates is not normally a benefit available to Associate Members.  They will also enjoy the benefits of being able to enter pleasure rides at members rates anywhere in the country if they wish.  They will also receive a complimentary copy of bi-monthly Endurance GB magazine.


3.    Associate Membership is available at an annual £38.00 for senior riders, £28 for young riders and £23 for junior riders.  As before, a team must consist of at least three combinations otherwise any Riding Club members who are not full members of EGB will be asked to downgrade to a pleasure ride of equivalent distance, but the benefit of holding Associate Membership is that they will be able to take part in the pleasure ride at members’ rates.


4.    Up to and including 6 combinations can compete in a team (as usual) but all will ride as scoring members this year, so there will be no need to nominate individual riders.  The best 3 will count towards the team score for the league table in the usual way.


5.    Combinations who are not part of a team can enter Pleasure Rides and ride with a team to gain experience of endurance riding before joining as an Associate Member.   These combinations must register as a Supporter of Endurance GB (free of charge) and record the details of their horse(s) (once again free of charge) before entering a Pleasure Ride at non-member rates.  Note that Associate Members are able to enter Pleasure Rides at member rates, saving the Temporary Day Membership of £8.00 per ride.


6.    Supporters new to EGB are also able to enter two graded rides at non-member rates on a “Try Before You Buy” basis and therefore compete with a team. However, they will only be able to enter two rides on this basis and will then have to join EGB as an associate member.


7.    All blue Riding Club mastercards for horses that will be competing this year are being recalled and then re-issued in a new format for 2018.  This applies especially to those horses with more than one mastercard (because they are being ridden by more than one person).  The new mastercard will not show the rider’s name.  Each horse will only have one mastercard, but the horse can still be ridden by more than one person.


8.    We will ask each Riding Club to register their intent to put forward a team, but there is no need to declare riders as before.  Instead, we ask that new combinations registering as Associate Members do so at least three weeks before their intended first ride to ensure that they receive their mastercard in time.  In so doing, all Riding Club combinations must register their membership of their Club by completing their current Club Membership Number and Club Name in the “Club Details” section of the online registration form.


9.    All rides must be entered online please.

Overview of the Competition

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 British Horse Feeds' BRC Endurance Team 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 British Horse Feeds' BRC Endurance Team Event Final at The Lion's Tail Ride on Sunday 17th September 2017.  Some wild card places may also be offered at the discretion of the national organisers.


Remember – you don’t have to enter the British Horse Feeds' BRC Endurance Team 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 British Horse Feeds' BRC Endurance Team Event can be found on the Rules tab.
