A STRIDE In The Sand

strides rider

Every year, during the last few days of August, all roads leading to Walvis Bay in Namibia carry hundreds of Endurance lovers and their horses towards a special occasion and an experience that is so remarkable that many of these people will return year after year.  This of course is the annual African Endurance Championship hosted by NERA, the governing body for endurance racing in Namibia.

Walvis Bay offers a tough race, both body and mind is tested to the full, and it’s only a special kind of horse, that is able to conquer this. This year’s event was no exception, it was grueling and tough, and the spectacular Namib Desert lends itself to memories and experiences that can never be forgotten.

STRIDE has been supporting this event for many years, and we have seen child riders become juniors...and then before you know it - they are competing in the senior divisions. Through the years we have seen legends being made, we have shared in so many people’s joy and triumphs, and experienced the sadness and pain that some have endured.

At the end of the day STRIDE strives to supply a superior range of products, and we have succeeded in that, but we have formed friendships and relationships with the entire endurance racing community, and this fact will always be cherished and respected. 

When reviewing the 2012 African Endurance Championship results, an interesting observation is clear.  An average of 55% of the Top 10 riders in ALL categories are regular and devoted STRIDE customers! We at STRIDE are proud of your achievements and success.  

As many people know, those closely associated with STRIDE are always available to help and try to advise all endurance riders. Whether you are the ultimate competitor, or just a fun loving rider, we  share a common love for the sport and especially the remarkable horses that make this all possible.

A big “thank you” to all that support us, without your input and feedback, our endeavours to provide and continuously develop superior products that are trusted, will be so much more of a challenge.
