Durham & Teesside Group of Endurance G.B. Group History
Durham & Teesside Group of Endurance G.B. began it's life as Northumberland & Durham Group of The Endurance Horse and Pony Society of Great Britain (EHPS) which was formed in 1985. In 2001 they split.
Northumberland & Tyneside and Durham & Teesside Groups were both formed in 2002. These were followed by the formation of Cumbria Group, then North & East Yorkshire Group.
The first Durham & Teesside AGM was held at Beamish. It was apparently a very quiet evening as not much had happened due to the 2001 Foot & Mouth outbreak and restrictions regarding movement of livestock were still in place.
The Group has had a number of Chairs, John Jamieson, Andrea Wastell, Jane Evans (twice), Nick Brown, Sue Gamble and Michael Evans.
It appears that as a group we are now 17 years old.
Please also get in touch if you have any further information about the Group's history that can be added.
