Weekend Overview and Information Sheet

Friday 4th, Saturday 5th, Sunday 6th May 2012

The 2012 Endurance Carnival will be a low key event in comparison to the Endurance Festival 2011 due to a very limited number of helpers.


We will endeavour for the weekend to be rewarding and enjoyable for all. Some competitors want to qualify for the 2013 Queensland Quilty, others want to qualify and vie for selection to the World Championships at Euston Park 2012, but for most it's the opportunity to enjoy a day in the saddle with a special horse at your chosen distance.


We look forward to welcoming you.

Peter Toft
