About The Event

Please only select one ticket as there is only one entry form. If you require another form, please refresh your browser and enter an additional rider as before.

All are welcome at this two day event, run by the Wessex branch of Endurance GB. This is a Pleasure Ride & Training Ride only, so there is no compulsory pre-ride or post-ride vetting. However on Sunday we are holding a post-ride 'Mock Vetting' to help anyone who hasn't done a GER before and wants to practice one before doing the real thing or simply giving a new horse the experience!

The routes are the same on both days.

The majority of the ride is off road in Stourhead Woods. The tracks are quite firm and not likely to be very muddy. There are some places where it is possible to canter but this is not a fast grassy ride with lots of galloping! The route will be clearly marked with orange tape, signs and there will be stewards out on course.

* There are NO jumps *

Start times will be issued closer to the time, if you wish to ride with anyone in particular please state this on your entry form.

Entries are limited by parking space at the venue, so please enter early to avoid disappointment.
