COVID-19 Update - 25th May 2020

Dear Members

After our QERA Management Committee meeting last night, I am pleased to report that we expect the endurance riding season to recommence on the weekend of July 11/12, with a multi-day/multi-ride event at Stirling’s Crossing, to be followed on 18/19 July with a similar event at Fernvale.  We are currently confirming the remainder of the Ride Calendar for this year and will let you know what is happening as soon as possible.

Currently, Phase 3 government restrictions will apply from 10 July for at least a month (although all of this is changeable), so these early rides may impose a number of limitations, including a cap on entries, a restriction on distance travelled to the event, the way the event runs, and especially on the tracking of all people who attend the event.   Equestrian Queensland, on behalf of all equestrian activities, will be negotiating with the Qld government the extent of those restrictions, and we will have further information soon.

Our QERA Registrar is ready to process memberships and  now is a good time to apply for logbooks for those young horses that you will be bringing to rides later in the year.

Stay safe, do the right thing, look after each other, and remember “Dreams don’t work unless you do”,

Kind regards



Welcome to the home page of the Queensland Endurance Riders Association Inc, the State governing body for equestrian endurance sports in Queensland.

We share a love of horses and the outdoors, we camp out and experience riding through some amazing parts of Australia. Make new friends and learn more about your horse than you ever believed possible. Endurance is a sport the whole family can enjoy.

Endurance riding in Australia includes 5km Tiny Tots Rides, 10km and 20km Introductory Rides, 40 to 60km Intermediate Rides, and Endurance Rides start at 80km to 160km in one day. There are also multi-day Marathon Rides up to 400km or more over consecutive days.

It is one of the few equestrian sports that accomodates everyone, young or old, everyone is welcome.  Men and women compete as equals.
