The 2004 Biltmore Estate Challenge will take place on 8 May. This year, the Biltmore will have CEI***/**, Open AERC (100 & 50), and also host the Region 12 IAHA 100 Mile Championship. The event will again be hosted on the grounds of the Biltmore Estate in Ashville North Carolina. Ride Manager Anne Ayala and the Biltmore staff wil host an expected 180 endurance competitors during the 3 day event.
Angie McGhee, having ridden 11 previous Biltmore Challenges, will provide first hand reports from Asheville. We look forward to providing timely information on Saturday as the rides progress as well as background information on the Estate and the riders competing at this years event.
This years Biltmore is also the first of 3 USEF National Endurance Team Training Events. (The other two will be Fort Howes on June 13th and the Abu Dhabi Arabian Nights ride on August 28th). All 10 USEF National Endurance Team Members will be attending these events, riding where/when practical and helping when not. The Biltmore will provide a suitably competitive venue for the first of these tests.
