Committee

Cotswold Endurance Group is run by a volunteer committee. We meet once a month to discuss group activities and to arrange rides for our members. If you have any news, questions or queries click on the members below to email them directly.

Endurance is a truly inclusive sport – nobody is judged on dress, type of horse or social status. My mare has calmed down so  much from her perpetual state of agitation since doing Endurance and is now a joy to ride.

It is an opportunity to enjoy the countryside where access is not normally given to horse & rider. My husband is my crew and he loves to see me start and finish a ride with a huge smile on my face. Heaven for me and my lovely mare.

Horses are the big love of my life (along with my son of course) and I take part in endurance whenever I can. I have made programmes for SKY Sports and the internet channel Country Channel TV on Endurance, Eventing, Polocrosse, Jumping and covered racing.

I started endurance in 2016.  I have always enjoyed hacking over long distance and exploring the countryside. Endurance was a natural progression and gives me something to focus on each year. I like the informal aspect and the friendliness along side the very high horse welfare standards

Trophies & Safeguarding

My gorgeous mare has done me proud and we have now started on the path of endurance. My ambition is to ride around Great Britain doing B&B with my horse - EGB has helped me to realise this. I really love the people I have met - ultra friendly, supportive, knowledgeable and really good fun. This has been my main motivation for joining the EGB committee.

SAFEGUARDING
Angela Percival

I was bought up in Dorset where I enjoyed exploring the bridleways for miles around my home. As a young adult living in west London, I bought a horse but the hacking was very limited - then  thanks to a friend I found Endurance and have never looked back!  Whatever level you ride at other riders are friendly and helpful, I have learned such a lot and made some great friendships over 30 years as a competitor and supporter of endurance activities.

TREASURER
Janet Kenward

After many years of working with and having my own horses I got into endurance when my daughter (Ella Bunting) started competing (thanks to Janet Kenward!). I am yet to compete myself, always busy being crew! But I have recently got my own pony for the first time since Ella was young and I hope to get out and about on the endurance scene with her soon.. watch this space!
