Organisers of the Euston Park series of rides, which include the HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum UK Endurance Festival (13th – 19th August) have today announced that the Festival’s National Rides will now take place on Monday 19th August, having been originally scheduled for Sunday 18th. The International and National Rides were to have run together, however it has become clear that large numbers are expected in both events and it was therefore decided by the Organising Committee that in the interest of rider and horse safety that the rides should be separated, thereby putting less pressure on officials, stewards, vets and medics. The change in dates will also give the grounds team opportunity to ensure that the tracks are in excellent condition for national competitors.
All National Competitors on the 19th will be eligible for the following awards
- Free stabling on Sunday evening – up to 60 horses.
- Catering on Sunday evening and Monday morning
- 2020 Ride Vouchers for British National Riders of £100 upon completion of the ride.
- Free Entry Fees paid to EGB
Entries close 12th August. The rides on offer are 80km GER, 64km GER, 40km GER, 40km Novice GER, 32km GER, 32km Novice GER, 32km PR, 20km Novice Foundation GER, 20km PR.
Each winner will receive a €500 voucher for Setzi Saddles who will also be exhibiting at the event.
