scottish endurance riding club
You, your horse and a route through some of Scotland’s loveliest scenery. You have a map, the route is marked, you know how much time you have to cover the distance. Perhaps you’re riding with a friend, perhaps it’s just you and your horse. You have a goal – to complete the distance in the time allowed, and finish with a sound and unstressed horse. This is endurance.
Forget the image of the happy hacker – to complete in time you have to maintain a reasonable speed. Forget the image of endurance races in the desert escorted by crew cars – that’s not what we do in Scottish Endurance. We believe in challenges – and in the welfare of the horse. We believe in promoting fitness in horse and rider. We believe in creating an unbreakable bond between horse and rider – and lifelong friendships with other riders.
Scottish Endurance – to complete is to win.
