Wow! What a weekend! This is absolutely why we love what we do!
A crisp early morning start saw our dedicated Team OSO Endurance Arabians heading off with 8 of our finest OSO horses prepared, primed and raring to smash out a huge weekend of endurance competing at the Roseberg Forest Endurance Ride.
With Ben Hudson kicking things off on Saturday, completing a solid 40km on OSO Mystery Man - followed by seven competing an 80km on Sunday, for OSO Endurance the Roseberg Forest Endurance Ride proved everything we’d hoped for and more.
With 100% completion, everyone pulled out all the stops and gave it their all, which resulted in a fantastic ride by the entire OSO team.
Saturday 40km ride:
OSO Mystery Man - Ben Hudson (also broken in by Ben too)
Sunday 80km ride results:
OSO Dizzy - Poppy Kettlewell - 2nd Junior OSO Diamond Dazzler - Tori Bice - 3rd LW OSO Dorothy - Ben Hudson - now qualified endurance horse OSO Tytanium (1st ever 80km ride) - Shea Reynolds - completed OSO Meeka - Morgan Stapley - now qualified endurance horse OSO Silver Soloman - Tamara Gibson - completed Al Marah Red Cardinal - Chloe Hayden - completed
None of this is ever made possible without the continued dedication, cohesion and passion of every single member of our team - riders, strappers and home crew alike - which together makes us who we are.
A big thank you also goes out to the organisers for putting on a such well run ride under such strict guidelines - once again, giving us all the opportunity to continue doing what we love!
