New-Moon Stud were proud to organise and sponsor the annual Wingello Forest Endurance Ride held over the 25th and 26th of May 2013. The event has blossomed into a significant regional event and this year was our biggest and best yet, with 218 horses entered in events across the weekend!
A variety of ride distances were on offer, ranging from 5km up to 80km. It was great to see the mix of all ages and riding skills out in the forest enjoying the fabulous Autumn weather on the fabulous Wingello Forest trails.
We had competitors from all over NSW at the event, as well as from Victoria, and even 2 riders from Malaysia. Our many local Cherished Volunteers were joined by friends from the Central Coast, Canberra, Blue Mountains and one from South Africa.
The ride is supported by local Highlands businesses including the Wingello Village Store, Knowles Stockfeeds Moss Vale, YES-Your Event Solutions Bowral, and of course – New-Moon Shagya-Araber Sport Horse Stud. This year we also welcomed our major sponsors Team Presco Endurance Singapore/Malaysia and Al Jeda Arabians.
The ride raises funds for the Tallong Rural Fire Service, and is assisted by volunteers from the RFS who cart water to the ride base and to checkpoints out on course throughout the event.
