Over a  decade from 2005 to 2015 annually in October, The Schanskraal Private Estate & Welbech Arabian Stud hosted the Schanskraal F.E.I.*** Endurance Ride.

It became a foremost annual international event in the endurance calendar where new records were set and was well attended by riders not only from across South Africa (including Cape Town and Johannesburg) but neighbouring countries such as Namibia and as far afield as New Zealand.

The Ride itself took place on the Schanskraal Estate and under the F.E.I. and E.R.A.S.A regulations offered 80km, 120km and 160km events over a horse-friendly course. The terrain and supporting facilitieswere highly praised by officials, organisers and participants and were of a high standard, boasting extensive grass areas for camping, spacious ablution block, marquee tents and new horse paddocks.

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.
