    Challenge and commitment: Bermudian rider Marvin Brangman finished first at an event in Ashville, North Carolina

Bermudian rider Marvin Brangman and Arabian horse MM Godiva Chokalat have qualified for the World Equestrian Games in endurance riding.

It will be the first time Bermuda will have had a competitor in endurance riding.

Endurance is a long-distance competition against the clock, which tests the speed and endurance of a horse.

It also challenges riders on their effective use of pace, knowledge of their horse’s capabilities, as well as the ability to cross varying terrains. Throughout the lengthy rides, there are periodic veterinary check stations to ensure the horse is fit to continue.

Brangman, an ordained minister, said qualifying for the event was a challenge and commitment, as it required entry into numerous endurance competitions culminating in the recently held 160K competition in Ashville, North Carolina, where this team placed first.

The Games will be held in Tyron, North Carolina, from September 11 to 23.
