About Eat Sleep Ride Repeat
Eat Sleep Ride Repeat is a team of Ontario endurance riders training to take on some of the toughest endurance races on the planet.
Sarah Cuthbertson is a Canadian endurance rider with over 2000 km
s to her name in competition, and about ten times that in training rides and leisure. She is currently a FEI level 2* rider, eligible to ride FEI 3*. On home soil, in Southern Ontario, Sarah competes her Arab x Trakehner Cricklewood (known around the barn as Bentley). Together they have placed in the top ten of every 40 km to 120 km events they have entered, with notable achievements of earning the OCTRA Part-Arab award in 2013&2014 and winning the 1* division of the Pan-Am test event in 2014. Sarah also competes regularly in Ride N Tie events, and has earned top awards in 2 teams in 2013 and 2014.
In August of 2014, Sarah took on the Mongol Derby – also known as the World’s Longest Horse Race. Due to safety concerns with her equipment, Sarah chose to withdraw in one piece and with a positive attitude, and plans to take another crack at in a few years in hopes that luck will return to her side.
In October of 2016, Sarah accomplished her “wildest” dreams at Race the Wild Coast, a 350 km adventure race along the eastern coast of South Africa. Riding in the leading pack the entire time, Sarah is most proud of her horse management – allowing her first out of the vet check almost every time. In a 500m dash at the end of the race, she placed 3rd, only seconds behind 1st and 2nd place. Keep checking back for more details, as she will be in a documentary about the race due out in February 2017.
Ashley Tomaszewski is a Canadian FEI endurance rider who is up to try anything once! Starting riding at a young age, Ashley has competed in many disciplines including barrel racing, western performance classes, hunter, jumper, and eventing. She was also a member of the Canadian Cowgirls drill team, getting the opportunity to travel across North America as a proud ambassador for our great country. Taking up endurance in 2014, Ashley and her horse Splash have over 700 km in competition, winning awards every year and won the 2016 Ontario Championship in the sport of ride n tie with Ashley’s younger brother Alex.
in 2016, Ashley will be attempting the Shore to Shore endurance race in Michigan. Along with Sarah, the pair will ride 400 km from the shore of Lake Huron to the shore of Lake Michigan; 50 miles a day for 5 days. Ashley also plans on travelling to South Africa in 2018 to compete in Race the Wild Coast and hopes to one day complete the Tevis Cup race, one of Time magazine’s top 10 endurance competitions (the only horse endurance race to make the list).
