Sally Toye (who calls herself an ‘almost Wessex member’ as she enjoys the routes and atmosphere of Wessex rides so much) writes about her Exmoor Extra (3 days of 40km) experience. She came to the Wessex 2013 BAM to talk about her Tevis Cup experiences in USA – fascinating – and she has attempted to draw parallels between GHS and Tevis.
Sally writes: With an excellent third endurance season so far, I entered my 9 year old mare into the Exmoor Extra class. 120k over three days. I wasn’t sure how it would go or if “we” were fit enough and after last year’s 80k over 2 days. Exmoor can throw at you curved balls and I hoped our preparation work on a variety of hills and with gates would all come together. This ride is a great test for any combination and we had come away from the previous year having so learnt. Time to see if she was a three day horse.
At the venue before the start there was a bit of time to hang out before the evening briefing. Here some people asked if I was going to the Tevis Cup again after my previous successes (and failures!) And then I get the inevitable question, “is Golden Horseshoe as hard as Tevis?”
These two rides are very different and also very similar. These rides both involve terrain and a time limit and yet there is no fog, sleet, wind or sideways rain in California and no mountains in Somerset!...
