ESNZ Endurance has named a strong team of four horses and riders to compete in the Junior/Young Rider Endurance World Championship in Abu Dhabi on December 10 this year.

This will be the first time for the New Zealand Junior/Young Rider team to send kiwi combinations; in the past the riders have travelled over and ridden lease horses.

The team is:

· Tessa Deuss and Aspen-Hills Santa Ana, Wellington
· Emma Mason and Taralea Sheer Illusion, Wellington
· Sian Reid and AA Sabatage, Pokeno
· Georgia Smith and Aurora Australis, Taihape

The four girls bring together a mix of experience and strong ability with all competing at CEI 3* 160km level.

ESNZ Endurance has also selected Kevin James as the Chef d’Equipe and Susan Reid as the Coach for this team and event.
