Yarloop Endurance Ride 2018

Posted on: Thursday, 7 June 2018 at 1:02:33 PM

On the 19th of May the Annual Yarloop Endurance Ride was held at the Log Fence Pony Club grounds. It is a Western Australian Endurance Rider's Association ride organised by Ali Healy and her team of volunteers.

There were various distances offered to riders from 10km to 80km. With a fantastic total of 103 riders participating in the event. It was great to see all the kids and new riders – these people are the future of the sport and they had over double to amount of entries in the 10km distance this year compared to last.

The weather was lovely as riders from a wide range of ages set off from the back of the Log Fence Pony Club grounds and rode out onto Andrew Kaus’ property. A big thank you to Andrew and his family for offering their property for the ride, the riders really appreciated the stunning view coming back down the hill. People leading some of the 10km riders really appreciated not having to walk up the hill.

Annabel Sewell was led on the 10km ride by her father Mark Sewell who said it was their second Yarloop endurance ride. “It is such a great event and we intend to keep coming back.”

There were a few seasoned endurance riders and horses who tackled ‘Killer Hill’ in the 80km ride, so the event catered for riders of various skill level.

Ali Healy would like to give a big thank you to Melissa Jenkins for allowing use of her paddock at the top so riders didn’t have to come out on a bad bend on the road and a massive thank you to all the helpers and volunteers – especially Ruth Morley and her amazing family, she couldn’t have run such a successful ride without them and she appreciates each and every one.

The event was a huge success and we’re sure next year will be even better.
