Horse Endurance Ride a great success

The Southern Highlands Horse Endurance Ride was a great success with 172 riders taking part in a 20km, 40km, 80km or 100km ride.
The new base camp situated on private property worked extremely well, providing a very communal atmosphere.  It seemed as if a little village appeared on the Friday evening and Saturday morning, hustled and bustled with activity and good cheer for the two days and then quickly disappeared by Sunday evening!
Once more the Wingello Village Store was a Minor Major Sponsor and this year we also provided on-site catering.  By the end of the two days we had provided over 270 burgers!  Consider that if you piled all these one on top of another, this would make a tower of yummy food 10 metres high!
Next year Wingello will be host to the State championships of the Horse Endurance Rides.
