I'm interested in joining endurance riding. My horse was specifically bred for this type of riding. How would I train her for it though? She is 9 years old and pretty well trained already. She is also in excellent condition, good strength and weight. The competition im thinking about is on September 1st. Is that enough time? I am going to start exercising and training myself, while training her.
Should I start increasing distance or speed first? I will go for a 30 mile one first. So if I ride 5 times per week I could aim for 6 miles a day. I would work on either distance or speed and then switch once we've improved on one.
I really need tips as I probably have no idea what I'm doing. Thank you in advance!
