What is endurance

It encompasses 23 local Groups throughout England and Wales who organise social events and rides from 8km (5miles) which are non-competitive or social/training rides, right up to 160km competitive rides (100 miles) for the most advanced horse and rider - we pride ourselves on offering a full calendar of events for every level and ambition of rider.

Who are Mid South EGB
Mid South EGB is one of those local groups and we cover Hampshire, Berkshire and parts of Oxfordshire and Surrey as per the map below. If you are a member of EGB and live in these areas you will automatically become part of the group, however there is also an option for those living near the area to ‘opt’ to be a Mid South Member, usually for practical or social reasons.
As a local group we run training rides and events as well as 3 national events and are always happy to offer advice for people who would like to try endurance or people
who would like to progress to the next level.
We also have our own Mid-South selection of competitions and trophies which runs through the year and all our awards are presented at the end of year annual meeting and awards dinner.
