Namibian Endurance Riding

The official Namibian Endurance website. 

The first endurance ride in Namibia was held in 1966 between Veldduin and Maroelaboom.  The first endurance ride club in Namibia was established in 1978 at Grootfontein and was called Otjiwanda Uithouritklub. After the withdrawal of the South African Defence Force in 1989 endurance riding stopped in Namibia.

After the Namibian Independence the Grootfontein Endurance Ride Club was established in 1990 and the first endurance ride was held on 13 April 1990 at Kranzfontein near Grootfontein.  In 1992 the first Namibian Championships were held at Gobabis. Ever since the endurance sport has grown tremendously and we now have more than 200 members and seven clubs. 

More important than the numbers however, is the quality improvement that Namibia Endurance Riding have experienced. We have grown to become internationally competitive with our wonderful and tough horses.

Today we host some of the most challenging endurance rides, attracting riders from all over the world.
