HORSE ENDURANCE NSW 2014 STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS AT DEL RIO RIVERSIDE RESORT, HAWKESBURY RIVER, WISEMANS FERRY



The 2014 Endurance NSW State Championships was held on the 13th-15th of June 2014, at Del Rio Riverside Resort situated in the Hawkesbury Valley, the spiritual home of Australian Endurance Riding.

The State Championships is also serving as a trial run for the Australian National Championships; The Tom Quilty Gold Cup, to be held in 2015. It will also be the 50th Tom Quilty Gold Cup and will be a celebration of Endurance Riding in Australia over the past 50 years.

It was such a wonderful site to see all these  horses take off at the starting gate Midnight Friday night and not finishing till Midnight Saturday Night. There were 2 sections to the race an 80K ride and 160K ride, their stamina is amazing. All the riders had spot lights on their helmets, nothing was going to stop the ride along the rugged terrain up over the Bicentennial Rd, running along the magnificent Hawkesbury River.
