Combine horses and riders, a marked course through incredible countryside, camping, families and friends and you have the recipe for endurance riding.
Canobolas Endurance Riders Club is hosting the inaugural Matar Stables Bullio Cup Endurance Carnival on November 3 and 4, with 120 people from all over Australia and even New Zealand coming to compete.
The Carnival includes an 80km event for international rankings and an 80km ride for domestic riders as well as a 40km training ride, introductory 20km social ride and two shorter five and 10km rides.
A Perpetual Bullio Cup has been commissioned and a unique riding buckle and medallion have been struck for this Ride. These will be awarded to successful completions of the 80km and 40km rides.
The course for all events will travel through the Canobolas Forest and into Cadia Mines country and lease country owned by Cadia Mines. Much of this land is usually inaccessible to the general rider. Ride Organisers are privileged to have the support of Forestry NSW, Newcrest Cadia Mines and their farm Agistees for making this event possible.
Orange Radio club will be facilitating check points along the course, stocked with drinking water for horses and riders, and lollies. All the gates will be opened and the course will be marked with coloured arrows for each leg to provide a clear direction for the riders to follow.
The ride base is located 18kms along Four Mile Creek Road, Canobolas, on the edge of Canobolas State Forest.
