Durham and District Riding Club Endurance Team 2014


Happy New Year to all members of the Durham and District riding Club, let’s hope it’s a successful one for all members of the club in whatever disciplines they choose to compete in with their horses and ponies in 2014.


This was the first year the club put forward a team to compete in the KBIS Riding Club Endurance Challenge run under Endurance Great Britain rules and we won our league!  Well done all team riders, Sylvia Briggs riding Whitbridge Crystal Callista , Christine Dowson riding Arnside Miracle, Michelle Dowson riding Runnymede Distant Echo, Vikkie Wilkinson riding Blackfoot Pocatello, and me riding Al Zahi Khazan and Ibn Karima.  As team manager I would like to say that you all did me proud.


Unfortunately, although we were invited to participate in the National Championships held at the Red Dragon Ride in Wales during October, we were unable to put forward a team, on this occasion, and had to decline the offer.


So now building on the success of the team in 2013 I am looking forward to the 2014 season.  This commences in March, and I am again looking for members to join the squad.  Anyone interested in being part of the squad for 2014 please let me know by contacting me on 07999718688 or email to Karen_david3@hotmail.com


Each combination must be declared with Endurance GB prior to competing so the sooner I can get the declaration forms off to them the better, therefore please let me know as soon as possible if you are interested.  Your horse, and you, will need to be relatively fit as there are speed parameters and you will need transport for your horse.


Also, for those who may be interested, I am planning to book the gallops at Stonechester again from March, please watch the web site for dates if you are interested in joining us.


Be lucky.
