2024 Endurafest Wrap

Equestrian Queensland was proud to support the 2024 Endurafest hosted by Oz Endurance (Q) Inc, held last weekend from 30 May to 2 June.

Hundreds of visitors were welcomed to ‘Catch the Country Spirit’ in Inglewood, Queensland, a beautiful quiet country town for the showcase event demonstrating the best of endurance. 

The 2024 Endurafest featured the inaugural Australasia Regional Endurance Championship, with teams of 4 athletes from Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore and Australia contesting the CEIO 1* 100 km event.

Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand and Singapore teams were all provided Australian-owned pool horses.

The program also included FEI 3 star, 2 star and 1 star international endurance competitions and AERA classes that catered for all ages and levels of riders with various divisions from 20 km through to 160 km. The three days of competition also included an educational forum, a trade village, volunteer club, spectator areas and involvement from the local community.

On Saturday 1 June the FEI 3* and AERA 160km rides started from 3am and all other FEI and AERA rides followed with over 160 horses on course at the same time. A huge congratulations to all riders, horses and teams that successfully completed in the FEI and AERA rides. All results are available and can be found via the link below.

On Sunday 2 June, flag bearers for each country led each Team into the main arena for the Bremervale Justice Challenge, a spectacular feature event held prior to the award ceremony on Sunday morning.

Named after the renowned 'Bremervale Justice' (pictured below), that passed away in 2017. He was one of the leading advanced endurance horses in Australia and won three medals for Australia: Team Gold in France 2000, Team Bronze in Spain 2002 and Team Silver in UAE 2005 at the World Championships. The Bremervale Justice Challenge continues on in his memory to recognise outstanding talent across multiple criteria.

The Bremervale Justice Challenge incorporated results from the Australasia Regional Endurance Championship for Team Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand and Australia. 

Points were scored across three categories, the first being the Overall Recovery Rates and the second being the Veterinarian Parameters for each team from the CEIO 1* on Friday 31 May and the third component was scored by guest judges Olympian Show Jumper Guy Creighton and WEG Endurance Rider Alexandra Toft on presentation, equitation and presence. The best of three scores for each country across each category was calculated to place the overall Teams. It was very close between New Zealand and Australia with Team Australia being named the Bremervale Justice Challenge Champions.

An enormous effort was made by the Oz Endurance committee, organisers, officials and volunteers prior and during this event to run successfully and could not have been made possible without all the support of the generous sponsors, congraultions to everyone involved.
