THE Margaret River Endurance Riders Club went to Wagin on the 29th to represent Margaret River at the annual Kazan Challenge. The ride, sponsored by Kazan Stables of Malaysia, attracted overseas and interstate competitors as well as buyers. It was a combined FEI and AERA event with ride distances up to 160km.

Margaret River Club members enjoyed the great tracks to compete in the AERA 80km and 40km divisions. Claudia Seke, riding Alcedo Mystique, qualified 1st in the 80km Lightweight division with Alcedo Mystique receiving the vet’s Best Conditioned vote. Noelene Cochrane came 2nd on Orchid Park Delilah. Tania Oosterhof completed 80km in Middleweight, riding Sileby Krystal Nile and congratulations to Emma Swarbrick and Redline Heaven Can Wait for completing their 80km in Heavyweight division - qualifying herself and her horse from Novice to Endurance status. Well done! Maria Bergstrom and Pagewood Ruby Shyne breezed through their first 40km ride.

Interested riders can contact us or can ‘have a go’ with our own Margaret River Ride on November 12. We also hope to hear from potential sponsors. Call president Emma Swarbrick 0438 778 058 Tracy Owen 0427 086 515 or 9758 2392.
