JEJU, South Korea, March 13 (Korea Bizwire) – Jeju hosted the 2017 Jeju Horse Endurance Festival on Sunday, organized by the Korea Halla-Horse Association. 

Some 500 equestrians from Korea and overseas participated in the contest, with athletes competing in three events – 10-kilometer, 20-kilometer, and 30-kilometer races – in individual and team categories. 

Endurance riding is one of eight international competitions recognized by the International Federation for Equestrian Sports that measures both the speed and endurance of horses.
