The Bermuda Equestrian has received official confirmation that Marvin Brangman and Arabian horse MM Godiva Chokalat have qualified for the 2018 World Equestrian Games in the Discipline of Endurance Riding, which will mark the first time the island will be represented in the genre.
Endurance is a long-distance competition against the clock, which test the speed & endurance of a horse. It challenges the riders on their effective use of pace, knowledge of their horses’ capabilities as well as the ability to cross varying terrains. Throughout the lengthy rides, there are periodic veterinary check stations to ensure the horse is fit to continue.
This will mark the first time that Bermuda will have a competitor in the discipline of Endurance Riding.
A delighted Mr Brangman said that qualifying for the 2018 World Equestrian Games was a challenge & commitment.
It required entry into numerous endurance competitions culminating in the recently held 160k competition in Ashville where this team successfully placed 1st place in a speed of 14.37 [km/h]. The World Equestrian Games will be held in the USA from 11th – 23rd September.
An ordained Minister, Mr Brangman gives thanks to his faith, as well as the dedicated support from his wife, Mary and the continual encouragement from his coach, Christo Dinkelmann.
