In 2005, in response to an increasing demand from endurance riders past and present, a new endurance riding group was launched. A number of like-minded individuals formed a competitive national sporting organisation to provide equal opportunities for everyone, at all levels, to enjoy endurance and long-distance riding.
The group, called Sport Endurance, aims to use modern technology coupled with innovative ideas and rules which are in line with the rest of Europe, to move the sport of endurance riding into the 21st century
The following aims were written at the time:
The intention is to encourage groups and regional associations. These will be autonomous. The central management committee will focus on the organisation as a whole ensuring consistency of policy, rules and finance across the organisation. We will put in systems that will focus on modern technology. Membership on line, ride entry on line and payment by credit card will all be possible. Ride results will be available on our website within 48 hours of the ride. Our plan is to do away with the master card in favour of a members’ account system, which will carry everything a member needs to know.
The Vision for the short to medium term is:
To form a modern, professional, national sporting Endurance Riding organisation which provides equal opportunities to all, whatever their experience.
The Values on which we are basing the organization are:
Our decisions and development in the first instance will be based on these values. They will set the direction and cultural ethos of the organisation.
Aims and Objectives
We are an equal opportunities organisation offering riders the choice to join a group which values sportsmanship, integrity, trust and tolerance, and places the welfare of its members and their horses as its primary responsibility.
