Endurance test awaits in opening event of season

THE West Riding group of Endurance GB is holding its first event of the season at Wharncliffe Chase, near Sheffield, on June 12 and June 13

There will be something to suit all abilities, from an 80km competitive ride to a 27km pleasure ride, in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

There is practically no road work involved and the rides go along old railway lines and woodland tracks.

This year the event will also be a qualifier for the British Riding Clubs' Endurance Championships which will be held at Southwell racecourse in September.

For more details go to www.endurancegb.co.uk or call Jeni Gilbert on 01484 863506.

If you have ever thought about trying TREC, there is a chance to have a go at Frickley near Doncaster on June 12 and 13.

This competition combines a variety of skills from orienteering on horseback to a cross-country course with a difference.

More information is available on the BHS website at www.bhs.org.uk/Riding under TREC.
