Organising events throughout Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex
There are many local groups (which are branches of Endurance GB) throughout the country, which organise rides, social and training events. Most have their own newsletter and trophies for local events.
Here in Iceni, thanks to the many organisers, we provide a year round calendar of
events, from lead rein through to the longer competitive rides. Most are around Thetford
Forest, whilst others are in North Norfolk (Ride on the beach) and Bury St. Edmunds
area. At the moment we are looking for someone to organise a ride in Essex -

Long Distance Riding is a family sport, open to anyone with a horse.
It is about going out and meeting people, riding through our countryside, and most importantly having fun! You don’t need any special equipment, particular breed or type of horse to get started, just you, your horse and your normal riding tack.
If you think you may be interested in this growing sport, come along, watch or help at an event and see what goes on.
Perhaps it is useful to say what Endurance Riding isn't. It isn't a long pony trek, ambling through lanes, it isn't for the faint hearted, and it isn't for the rider who doesn't actually enjoy being in the saddle for long.
So what is it?
It is a unique competitive challenge and a supreme sport for learning about equine
fitness. Veterinary checks before and after competitive rides -
You, the rider, learn more about the way your horse functions, with the importance
of regulating your riding to suit conditions which will affect the way your horse
behaves and manages the distance:-
* The terrain: is it hilly or flat, sandy or hard ground?
* The weather: is it cold, wet, foggy, or hot and sunny?
* The route: is it difficult to follow on the map, or a more simple circular course?
