THE FIRST big endurance ride on the horse calendar, which was held at King’s Forest near West Stow, has been hailed a success by one of its organisers.
Dianne Luke, who organised the one-day King’s Forest Spring Ride which saw 130 riders take part, said: “It was a brilliant day, and everybody was very happy with it.
“There were no accidents, which is always good, and no horses were injured, which is brilliant.
“It started off quite cold and chilly, but the riders appreciated that because they could get the first 20km under their belt in cool conditions.”
The event had an international flavour, with riders from Hong Kong, Dubai and Switzerland, as well as 50 British competitors.
Wideham Farm Equestrian Centre, which hosted the event, will also stage the National Championships in the summer.
Janice Cockley Adams was the big winner of the day, claiming first place in the class 1 CEI 120km with her horse Serabitibi.
