Endurance GB, the national governing body for endurance riding in the UK, held its AGM at the Delta hotel in Warwick on Saturday 25th November.
Key elements of the AGM are board and member proposals to make change to the rules that govern the sport. These rule changes are voted on by the membership and ensure the sport remains agile and in touch with the environment in which it operates.
With the current focus on the equestrian world’s ‘social license to operate’ the Board of Endurance GB and members voted overwhelmingly to ban the use of whips (or the use of any other item as a whip) at the top end of the sport in Competitive Endurance Rides.
Endurance riding in the UK remains committed to being at the forefront of equine welfare and bio-security.
