Click on Endurance Ride Association South AfricaOf which I am an active ERASA member, participating in endurance riding as my main sport and main motivational interest. I've completed quite a few 80 kilometre rides, a 120 km, as well as my first Fauresmith 200 in July 2009. I ride without been attached to a lead rein, and my sighted guide either rides behind, or at times infront of me, warning me of obstacles, bad terrain, and direction when needed. I also belong to the Midvaal endurance club, a newly established club in our area.
