More than 200 horses during this week-end of endurance in Mont Le Soie. Sun and good spirit during those two days. A cristal-clear course on events on the 160. Passion and new developments on the 120 Young Riders.

During the sunday's races also a very clear progress of events oin the 120 with our British Armada looking mainly for completion. On the top of that a no-bug timekeeping from ATRM who was also testing the new Light-Version on the qualification races.

Thanks for all participants, vets, officials, media and the guy in the sky for the good weather.

April 28
It has been raining well during the last two days. Nothing alarming. On the contrary, that will make the going better, with less concussion for the joints and feet of our equine friends. For Saturday, the forecasts are on 'scattered showers alternating with clear sky'. So pack a rain rug...

April 27
There will be more than 70 horses at the start of the various qualifications rides (from 30 to 80km), including a dutch armada which will get the taste of the hilly Ardennes. We can also expect a couple of dozen horse on the novice 20km ride. So all in all a good week-end for the Belgian endurance. Follow this link for the CEN entries

April 24
The list of starters is now available (follow this link.) There will be eighty couples competing on the various races during the week-end. This is the first time that Mont Le Soie will be welcoming as many as participants. The weather forecast are favorable : there will be sunshine and clouds with normally no showers.

April 15
It announces a very good level of participation, both on Saturday then Sunday. A dozen small Dutch, German five or six, eight French, a British armada will test the waters and the hilly eastern Belgium.

ATRM, the French company for the timing of peak endurance races, will be there to manage the race and give us as usual flash rankings, timed to the second table redéparts, etc..

And last but not least, the commentator appointed Herve Guesdon we will enjoy his dynamism and his insightful comments.

The configuration of the loops has not changed from previous years.
