Grampian Rider To “Go The Distance” For Scotland

The profile of Endurance Riding has been raised considerably recently as a local member of Grampian Branch of the Scottish Endurance Riding Club has succeeded in being selected to represent Scotland in October 2004.

Local rider Lorna Hogg with her horse De Marco are to join a total of 14 SERC members on the Scottish Team, competing over distances ranging from 20 – 100 miles on the Welsh hills surrounding Builth Wells, Wales on 2nd & 3rd October 2004.

As Endurance Riding does not yet have Olympic status the Scottish Team is self-financing, making it difficult to attract major sponsors, so the challenge is now on to raise the necessary funds to enable these local riders to “Go for Gold for Scotland” and promote Grampian as an area of excellence

Team members acknowledge that their success in endurance riding relies heavily on local landowners allowing access to their land for rides and training purposes and Grampian Branch would like to extend a vote of thanks to the many landowners who have supported the Scottish Endurance Riding Club in this way throughout the year.
