Merri's Travel Stories & Photos

Merri Melde travelled to Australia to visit a few of the top Endurance trainers and horse breeders, and observe a bit of the sport. An AERA ride in the southeast state of Victoria (Road to Nowhere) and an International FEI ride (Imbil) in the northern state of Queensland provided a sampling of the styles and landscape of this vast country.

A week at Meg Wade's Castlebar Ranch, and a week with Toft Endurance highlighted Australia's thriving Endurance training and breeding operations.
