ENDURANCE

Our very own Lily Gibbons took part in the EGB Inter Regionals which was held at Wheeting near Newmarket, a mega journey to start with!.  Each area sends their best team, and each ride different distances. Lily rode per pony Sandy in the 33k novice pony / horse ride. There were 34 adults and her in the class. For this event you really have to go fast but the final heart rate is the key factor. Lily rode with a lady called Jean riding Harvey, Harvey gets very excited when anything overtakes him, so Lily went in front for most of the ride and Harvey settled.  Sandy started off the ride with a heart rate of 40 and finished on 41 with an average speed of around 14 kph. She was the youngest rider in the entire event.  Massive well done Lily and Good Luck for the Pony Club Endurance Championships.
