Endurance Horse Sports Australia conduct a ride

Endurance Horse Sports Australia launched their second event at the weekend. 

Starting on Saturday, eight riders took on the 20 kilometre ride which raised money for Gostwyck Chapel. 

Sunday saw a 40 km ride take place with all riders and horses completing the course.

EHSA will differs from traditional endurance riding with horses and riders put through their paces beforehand to make sure the partnership is running smoothly.  

The pre-ride workout demonstrates the soundness of the horse and skills of the pair. 

Post-ride includes a health and welfare check to ensure the horse has finished soundly. 

Points are then added from the workout and the health check to determine who places.
