IT takes a certain kind of horse to go the distance in an endurance ride - so too does it take a certain kind of rider.
So, it's just as well Stratford District has an endurance-riding hero in Toko's Amanda Walton who became North Island Champion last month.
On her grandfather Trevor's horse, Lotus Blue Moon, the 18-year-old undertook a 57km endurance circuit near Waiuku, south of Auckland on Saturday, January 2.
"We started at nine in the morning," says Amanda.
"Travelling through the heat at that time of day was pretty tough, but we managed to get back first."
The following day on her own horse, Sir Cae, Amanda undertook another gruelling 103km trail and came second – ending an extremely successful, but tiring two days of competition.
