Kate Curry and Doyenne
We first met Kate in 2011 when she was recommended to us by another endurance rider friend of hers whilst looking to find a new saddle for her beautiful arab mare Dory (Doyenne).
“I’ve been doing Endurance since the late 1980’s, and competing with Doyenne since 2005. I own a ReactorPanel Summit VSD, which suits both me and Doyenne – she has now completed 5600km with EGB, won the South East Champion Horse trophy three times and was 13th in the country in 2013. I see endurance riding as the chance to ride in some of the most remote and beautiful parts of our wonderful country, and Doyenne has been to most areas from Cumbria to Devon. The Isle of Wight is the furthest ‘abroad’ we have been though!
Kate is embarking in a special challenge this year to raise money for the BHS, she will be embarking on a 10 day ride from Chile, across the Patagonian Mountains into Argentina. Riding the indigenous Chilean Creole horses, she will be in the saddle for up to 7 hours a day, and caring for our mounts while negotiating precarious paths and fording wide rivers.
If you would like to help Kate raise money for the BHS please go to her justgiving page.
