Pictures: MATT BENNET Endurance test for horses and riders PRIZE: The gold trophy. KAROLIN MacGREGOR RIDERS from around the state will saddle up this weekend for the Tasman- ian endurance champion- ships. About 90 horse and rider combinations will take part in the championship at Sassafras in the state's North. The championship is run by the Tasmanian Equine Endurance Riders Association and is divided into two rides. One ride will consist of a 160km course and the oth- er a 93km course. Riders in the 160km event will set off tonight at midnight. Endurance riders are a tough breed and they will start the ride regardless of the weather conditions. Most use lights mounted on their helmets to see where they are going dur- ing the early stages. The 160km event is div- ided into five legs. Between each leg, the horses must pass a strict veterinary exam to ensure they are fit to continue. The horses must also pass a final veterinary check once they have com- pleted the whole course. The course is set over undulating terrain and the aim of most rider is simply to complete the course in the fastest possible time, without getting their hor- ses vetted out. Riders in the 93km event set out at 5am tomorrow. At some stage during the event, Mersey MLC Mike Gaffney, along with Alison and Hannah Colebeck, will ride part of the course and are sure to keep riders entertained. The first rider over the line will also receive a magnificent gold cham- pionship trophy. The horses will be pres- ented again on Sunday, when the sought-after best- conditioned titles will be judged and awarded.
