England: Pony Club embraces endurance riding to celebrate 80th birthday

1 June, 2008

The Pony Club is set to launch endurance as one of its official disciplines in 2009 to coincide with the organisation's 80th birthday.

Exact details are still under discussion, but endurance will be run with its own committee, established rules and distances and end-of-season national championships.

Cherry Michell, chairman of the Pony Club, told H&H: "Pony Club endurance is still in its infancy, but we've been planning it for a while.

"It's a wonderful opportunity for children to go out and ride in the countryside."

Novice, intermediate and open rides are planned throughout the year, and will
be run in conjunction with endurance's national governing body — Endurance GB (EGB).
