Riders invited to para-endurance competition
Para riders are being invited to compete at two national endurance rides, which are part of a new initiative to encourage disabled people to take up the discipline.
This will be launched at Puddingstone in Suffolk on September 23rd.
Emma Miller of the sport's governing body – Endurance GB – said there has been a lot of interest from the Injured Jockeys Fund and Help for Heroes.
There may also be people inspired by the success of the Team GB Paralympic equestrian team, which has won a plethora of medals over the last few days, including team gold in the dressage competition.
Endurance GB is hoping more people will get involved as it has stated that if its target for the number of competitors isn't reached then the event will have to be cancelled.
Ms Miller added: "We aim to have a World Championships. The rides will be held in the same way as regular rides, although companion riders will be allowed."
