British Riding Club Team Event
This year Endurance GB is once again offering a Team Endurance Event to affiliated Riding Clubs on a national scale. The competition is still growing rapidly as more and more teams take part.
Riding Clubs are invited to form endurance teams of three to six riders. A Riding Club can have as many teams as they have interested horse and rider combinations. Each Riding Club can then enter their teams into any number of qualifying rides of 30 to 40km (about 25 miles). The qualifying rides can be chosen from over seventy EGB events throughout the country.
Potential riders 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. The Riding Clubs must declare each horse and rider combination with the national organisers before they enter any qualifying ride.
A team who completes a qualifying ride successfully will have its team score entered into a League Table for the Region in which the Club is based. A squad can then, if it chooses, enter a second or subsequent qualifying ride. The team score achieved at the second or subsequent qualifier will replace the existing score in the League Table if it is higher than the existing score. The team scores are calculated from the speed achieved over the course and the horse’s pulse at the final veterinary inspection.
The rules of the competition and full details of the Team Endurance Event can be found on our dedicated website: BRC Team event
