Beginner Rider Doing Endurance?
Hey :) I'm a beginner rider, as I've only been regularly riding and taking lessons for a few months. I'm taking english lessons for jumping currently, and I'm currently working on cantering.
I was on a few trail rides over the past few days, away from my trainer and barn at a summer camp, and I became interested in endurance riding. Right now I'm reading about it and I'm becoming very interested.
My questions will be concerning the future, as I don't have a horse, and I'm trying to save my money to lease a horse (I probably won't be able to for a few months at least, I'm trying to plan ahead and not get my hopes up). Is is uncommon for people to participate in endurance riding a leased horse? Is it best to be more experienced in the saddle before trying to get into endurance riding?
Sorry if these are "dumb" questions. I hardly know anything at the moment about endurance - I'm reading about it right now. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks!
