An endurance ride

In October 2011 the Waikato Endurance Club held an event that attracted 75 horses and riders to Whakamaru in the central North Island. On the first day there was a choice of three rides: 15, 30 and 40 kilometres. On the second day there was an 80-kilometre ride, as well as 15-, 30- and 50-kilometre options.
