The Pony Club Endurance Championships will be held at Euston Park in Suffolk on Sunday 19 August 2018 as part of the Nationals Day of the HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Endurance Cup Festival – The UK Endurance Masters. This will provide Pony Club Members with an incredible opportunity to be part of an international event where many of the world’s leading Endurance riders are expected to compete.
Staged across some of the best Endurance tracks in the UK, The Pony Club Championships will be organised by HPG Endurance (organisers of Euston Park Endurance), part of the HPower Group, and in collaboration with Endurance GB.
Mary Tuckett, Chairman of The Pony Club, said: “Taking our Championships to Euston Park is a great opportunity, and it will be a wonderful experience for our Members. Euston Park is a marvellous venue, and to be able to showcase Pony Club Endurance at all levels, from Grassroots to International, at this event is very exciting.”
Robert Blane, Chairman of Pony Club Endurance, said: “We are delighted to be invited by HPower to take our Endurance Championships to Euston Park. Huge thanks must go to both HPower and Endurance GB for their kindness and support.”
Nick Brooks-Ward, Endurance Director at HPG Endurance, said: “We are thrilled to be hosting The Pony Club Endurance Championships at Euston Park in 2018. It’s a fabulous venue and we know from the 2017 HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Endurance Cup Festival that the atmosphere between competitors of all nationalities and levels is superb. We are committed to be promoting the discipline of Endurance from the Grassroots up, and cannot think of a better place to start than with The Pony Club.”
