Australia: 2010 Tom Quilty in Manilla, NSW



Manillatomquilty.org.au

The 2010 Tom Quilty will be held 24-27 June in Manilla, New South Wales. The ride base will be the Manilla Showground which is on the banks of the Namoi River, the venue of the NSW 2005 and 2008 State Championship Rides. It will be hosted by the Tamworth and District Endurance Club Inc, and supported by NSWERA and the NSW Department of Sport and Recreation.

The showground will provide camping for approximately 300 horses and crew which will be all very close to the administrative facilities being used including the vetting area and communal strapping area.

WHY MANILLA?

The Tamworth & District Endurance Endurance Club was formed in 1993 and has run 80km endurance rides at Bendemeer and Manilla since that time. In 2005 and 2008 the club hosted the 160km NSW State Championships in Manilla. With the course and organization being so highly praised by the riders, it seemed the only challenge for the club was to run The Quilty in 2009.

With the outbreak of Equine Influenza in late 2007, this was then deferred to June 2010.
