Riders from around the world gathered in Jerez, Spain on March 26 for the start of Europe's premier multi-day Endurance event: Tierras de Al-Andalus - an eight day race across the south of Spain.
Almost 70 riders and horses will be competing in this event as either individual riders or members of a 2-person team. The race will be conducted in 8 stages:
Jerez to San Lucar
San Lucar to El Rocio
El Rocio to Sevilla
Sevilla to Carmona
Carmona to Ecija
Ecija to Cordoba
Cordoba - Montoro
Montoro - Virgen de la Cabeza (Andujar)
Each day is staged so that the riders are greeted and wined and dined at the end of the ride by local officials and sponsors from each of the Andalucian towns. The ride is the 'child' of Jose Manuel Soto, one of Spain's revered singers, who has a passion for horses and for adventure and a love of his homeland, Andalucia.
Merri Melde is following the ride this year and sending photos of each day's ride. So far three days have been completed.
Results and photos and coverage can be found at the Tierras de Al Andalus coverage site
