The South African 160km Endurance Riding Championships held at Schanskraal in 2012 & 2013.

For the first time at Schanskraal during the Schanskraal FEI *** Ride on 27th October 2012, the South African 160km Endurance Riding Championships were held. A foremost annual event attracting a high level of competition. 2012 was no exception - it was very well attended (highest since 1988) and proved to be a most successful and enjoyable event.  

For a second year running in 2013, the South African International 160km Championships were also held at Schanskraal. Riders came from as far afield as Namibia and New Zealand.

Our thanks go to all the sponsors for our events in both 2012 & 2013.
