I've really wanted to get into competative trail riding and endurance racing for a while now. The filly I rescued last year has come along in health splendidly and I trained her under saddle over the summer well enough to actually show her confidently at the fair. I really don't like it though, I feel like I'm in a fish bowl just going round and round waiting to get out. The only riding I really do is trail, and that's what she's trained for. She will go ALL day, and has before. I took her on a 30+ mile charity ride a few weeks ago and she was the youngest, plus was leading the pack most of the time. Have to admit she was tired that night though!
Anyway, I'm in Midwest Indiana about 30 minutes from the border of Illinois. An hour from Indianapolis and Bloomington, and 25 minutes from Terre Haute. I don't have a trailer but I have a friend who would haul me to the ends of the earth. Does anyone know of some good competative rides in Indiana, preferably beginner-friendly and in my general area? I can see there being some things in the Brown County or Dugger area. I want to get into this next year! My horse will trot all day and night, cold or hot, rain or shine.
