Event Information

 
PK Scottish Horseshoe on South Loch Ness on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th June, 2017
186 km course (organised by the South Loch Ness Access Group) to be ridden over 2 days. 93 km route (divided approx 40/53 km) on Day 1 to be repeated on Day 2.
Start, halfway and finish at Loch Ness Riding, Dores.

The route will consist of 2 different loops from the venue. Most of the route uses the fabulous Trail of the 7 Lochs which has wonderful views round every corner. It really showcases the fabulous Highland landscape, flora and fauna. If you are thinking of taking part in the Cairngorm 100 later in the year, this will be a brilliant training event for you.

If you complete the first day's ride and pass the vetting, you will gain a bronze horseshoe. If you complete the second day's midway vetting you will gain silver and if you achieve the full distance successfully you will get gold. You may retire at any stage but you will not lose the distance you have already successfully achieved at the last vetting. As long as you achieve the minimum speed of 8 kph you will gain an award. All other prizes will be based on condtion of the horses.

Vettings will be as per normal British endurance vetting standards and we have Derek Grantham and Zofia Lisowski signed up so far on our vetting team. Apart from vettings at the venue there may be inspections out on the course as deemed necessary by our vets.
Commemorative rosettes to all participants. Horseshoes (gold, silver and bronze) to all those successful from 90 km onwards. Prizes in kind for the best condition class (decided between all who achieve a gold award), winner of which will receive a rug sponsored by Pauline Kidd.
Entry fee £100 per person. All profits will be divided 50/50 between The Equine Grass Sickness Fund and the South Loch Ness Access Group. Extra sponsorship sheets available.

There is also a taster class of 40 or 50 km available on a pass/fail basis. Rosettes awarded to successful competitors.
