Sheila Bruce talks of her passion for Endurance riding
Scottish Endurance Riding Club (SERC) is a Club which consists of 9 branches dotted around Scotland in the west, east, south all the way to the far north to Orkney. It’s a great way to meet like-minded people and enjoy the great Scottish countryside, being able to travel and participate in Rides with your favourite four-legged friends. Our rides range in distance from 8km through to 160kms in a day and we also have some lovely two or three day rides. Our Scottish Festival of Endurance will held in Peebles in the Scottish Borders this year with lovely tracks and some hills with some great scenery to take in.
Just Chaps sponsor Ride classes
Just Chaps are sponsoring some of our Ride classes this year which is great, their chaps are such a good fit and in particular, their breathable chaps (Summer Cool Chaps) which are just perfect for Endurance Riding, have to say I ride with them all the time at home and away. All types of horses participate in Endurance Rides, Highlands, Cobs, Arabs etc. If you ride 3-4 times a week and your horse is fit you can start with Taster (8k-14k) or Pleasure rides (15k-29k). When I started Endurance Riding I was only going to do Pleasure Rides but the bug bit and me and my lovely Arab ended up doing 120km in a day such a great experience and I believe there is no other sport that allows you to have such a close partnership with your horse and it’s such a great feeling, one you never forget.
