AT the recent Golden Horseshoe Ride, Jill Thomas, champion endurance rider achieved a Gold Award on her Akhal Teke horse, Pompeii in the Exmoor Experience (two-day 80K) Class.
Jill has competed at Golden Horseshoe for many years and last week’s success meant that she has clocked up 1025 Golden Horseshoe miles since her first competition in 1986.
Pompeii is relatively new to Jill, who has recently moved from riding Arabian horses to Russian-bred Akhal Tekes.
Jill now hopes that Pompeii is going to be her future international star.
Jill broke British and European speed records at the 1993 European Endurance Championships at Southwell.
Since then she has worked with equestrian companies to produce informative books and specific endurance products, helping to raise the profile of this fast growing equestrian sport.
