The 50th running of one of Britain's toughest endurance horse races across Westcountry 'wilds' could also be its last.
For half a century, the Golden Horseshoe Ride on Exmoor has tested riders and horses to the limit over a 100-mile course which takes in some of the most remote moorland in southern England.
The three-day event, starting on May 17, also features a series of other rides, and attracts more than 200 riders and supporters who pump more than £60,000 into the Exmoor economy.
