I was just looking at the AERC website and couldn't find anything on those 2 shorter distance days :( That would be PERFECT for me and my gelding! Do you have any more info on that ride? Thanks!

distances shorter than a 25 mile LD are not sanctioned by AERC so may not be mentioned on the main websight. These are used as intro and recruiting rides by some ride managers. You'll have to check the individual ride flyer. On the AERC calander go the specific ride, there should be a link to a ride flyer or ride websight. click on that. If that particular ride has an intro ride it should be there.
Not sure if that is a members area or not what rides were you looking at including state ?

It's the Texas region Ride the Storm on October 5-6. There's not a link to a flyer it's just a typed up description on the AERC website.

lower left side of the entry on the calendar, there is a "flyer" link which will download a pretty good info pack along with directions, maps, trail descriptions and entry forms which list intro rides for both days.

Sorry! I've been meaning to update you all but I've been so dang busy!

Selena and I had a wonderful ride. We rode with a seasoned endurance rider so I knew the pace would be quick. I planned to pull back if things became too stressful but Selena did great maintaining herself and wasn't at all stressed with her recoveries after the first 14 mile loop.

The trails at GMHA were beautiful and the weather was perfect, cool but sunny. We finished the 30 miles and came into the finish expecting to be the 3rd or 4th rider in (my aunt and the woman she was riding with were ahead of us all day and we didn't see them at ALL during the second loop so we figured they were WAY ahead of us). I walked the last mile in hand so I kind of knew Selena would be able to pulse down by the time we got to the vet. We got in, untacked, and walked into the vet with a pulse of 52 (Yay!) She passed her final vet check with all A's and with a pulse of 44.

When I got back to hold area I saw my aunt and the woman coming down the hill across the finish, only to find out they had taken a wrong turn and rode an extra 5 miles! I was so shocked because this meant Selena and I had taken 1st place out a 20 riders without even knowing it! Our ride time was 3 hours 38 minutes and words cannot describe how proud I am of my mare. She gave it her all and we had a really great time together which was what we went out to achieve, our placing was just icing on the cake
