Constance Newbould being presented with the 2017 Urban Horse 4 For the North trophy by Sarah Armitt

The 4 for the North Competition 2018

Sponsored by Urban Horse

The 2017 competition.

Some Statistics! I3 days of riding at 11 venues in North England and South Scotland attracted 33 horses with 32 riders spread over Endurance Gb members and Scottish Endurance members, some members of both.

8 advanced riders, 12 Open level riders and 12 Novice riders took part. The prize from our sponsor Urban Horse – vouchers- went to our highest points winner over best 4 rides. This was Constance Newbould from SERC Lothians with 191 points riding her lovely arab Zarkhruv. From personal experience I can say he is a dream horse, a real gentleman with turbo acceleration and superb brakes. I was very lucky when riding behind him as he responded to Constance by slowing down so quickly I nearly ended up in the saddle with Constance! Constance was also the winner by a narrow margin of the Advanced category rosette. She was being hotly chased by Carolyn Cummings with advanced campaigner Zim Nazka, on loan to Carolyn last year. The question is, will Carolyn have this lovely grey mare out in 2018 or is her ‘Baby’ Connemara ‘Dun and Dusted’ about to make her debut?

In the Open class Angela Johnson of Northumberland and Tyneside Group with Bright Destiny was well out in the lead with 181 points. Out of 6 rides Angela got fab scores at Dialstone and Fishwick. ‘Tam’ her horse loves his Scottish rides as does Angela and they frequently travel from south Durham to the borders.

In the Novice class it was pleasing to see how the new folk quietly and steadily improved their scores through the season, as they sought advice and gained experience. High heart rates at Durham was down to the unusual hot, hot day when horses were still rather woolly from winter, but panic subsided as the season got back to usual temperatures! The final winner was Christine Hogarth of Durham and Teesside Group with Prince on a total over 4 best rides of 127, but close behind was Lisa Johnson with her new young horse Magnifique Design. If Lisa had not lost her way at Cumbria ride for a bit we may have had a draw!
