Australia's prestigious Tom Quilty Gold Cup endurance ride will take place in Nanango, Queensland, in September this year.

Considered one of the most challenging and competitive horse events in the world, the "Quilty" attracts champion riders from Australia and overseas. Last year one of the competitors at the Nanango International Endurance event was the King of Malaysia.

In 1966, 26 riders began the first Tom Quilty, a 100-mile endurance ride on a course west of Sydney.

Last year the Tom Quilty Gold Cup was held in Western Australia.

The ride, the brainchild of RM Williams, now attracts up to 250 of the finest riders in the world.

(Quilty Week runs from 15 to 21 September 2008)
