What3Words (for Larkhill Racecourse entrance):

Endurance GB (EGB) will kindly present 'An Introduction to Competitive Endurance Riding' the Queen's Building, Larkhill Racecourse from 09.00-09.45am on Sun 13 Aug and is FREE for all to attend.

EGB will cover the two main types of endurance rides – graded and competitive. In a graded ride, the challenge is to keep pace within set parameters while taking account of the varying terrain and passing veterinary checks at the beginning and end. The final grading is calculated from your speed and your horse's recovery rate. In a competitive endurance ride, all the riders start together, and the winning horse is the first one to cross the line, while stopping periodically to pass veterinary checks that deem your horse in good health to continue.

Endurance offers a unique equestrian challenge. Please ensure the best possible care is taken of your horse.
