TBYB is an opportunity for those new to endurance riding to enter a novice Graded Endurance Ride (GER) up to 40km before applying to become an EGB member and registering their horse.
This allows a non-member or new associate member to experience their horse being vetted, be able to see what speed must be achieved, and see how their horse copes with the distance.
Successful completion of the ride is rewarded with an appropriate rosette, based on the results of their vetting! However, no trophy points will be accumulated and no progression towards novice qualification can be gained. This offer just allows non-members or new associate members to experience what it is like to enter and enjoy a competitive ride but it is limited to a maximum of two rides per applicant.
