20th anniversary endurance ride

Thursday, 24 March 2005

On May, 1 Girard Forest will once again ring with the sound of hoof-beats as the Tenterfield Endurance Riders Club hosts its 20th Anniversary Ride.

The Club was formed in 1985 with a view to running a Bicentennial Endurance Ride of 160km in 1988. Its inaugural training ride in 1986 was followed by an 80km ride in 1987. By this time the Club had an enthusiastic core of riders and a strong working committee. Affiliation with the Queensland Endurance Riding Association resulted in the granting of the Queensland Championships being run in conjunction with the historic Bicentennial Ride in 1988. Hugh Bridle was the youngest local rider to successfully complete this ride.
