The New Forest Riding Club Endurance team has ridden in two more EGB rides since our last update in April. The team achieved its highest score to date at Hardy’s Ride in Winterbourne Steepleton with a high speed of 12.8km over a very hilly 34km route and two of the riders gained Grade 1 results (Rebecca Tooley and Helen Bowyer), a 2 Grade 2s for Amanda Barton and Barbara Moorhouse. The team did extremely well overall on this ride with Rebecca Tooley coming first, Helen 3rd, Amanda 25 riders. Read Rebecca’s write up below to find out more.
At the start of May, we went to the Cerne Giant ride with a starting point right under the famous Cerne Abbas Giant. It was another hilly course, this time over 41km with a team of three riders; Amanda Barton, Helen Bowyer and Barbara Moorhouse. The horses did a fantastic job over the longer course and we had another fun day out.
