Penny Clawd is the horse, Belinda Stewart, the rider and the event is the Golden Horseshoe Endurance Ride, a challenging ride of up to 100 miles (in old money) over two days on the Exmoor terrain. A challenge in itself. Great news, from Exmoor, that Belinda and Penny completed the Exmoor Stag class with a Gold Award. Penny was also awarded Best Condition, an achievement treasured by Belinda as it is an accolade to the horse’s conditioning and training to enable it to complete such a tough ride. The Exmoor Stag class distance is 80km / 40km over two days. If you visit theGolden Horseshoe websiteyou can see the 2018 pictures and get more info about the event.
Golden Horseshoe took place 18 / 19 / 20th May 2018
Unfortunately this year I was unable to attend, but in 2015 I took the picture of Belinda and Penny competing in a one day ride and also made a video that shows them during and after the ride and the tough conditions on the moor.
