Welcome to the Endurance Riding forum!

Hey all you endurance riders! We now have our own forum for posting about endurance - YAY!! - but here's the catch: in order to keep it, this has to get active and STAY active! So please start posting anything endurance related there so we can keep our new home for endurance conversations!

I've started a few general threads, but please start your own (in addition to posting anything you want in those) so we can get this going :) Thanks!

YAY!!!! Looking forward to seeing who else will post in here...

A horse is the projection of peoples' views about themselves--strong, powerful, beautiful--and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existance.

I'm happy. I claim this forum as my new home.

(Hopefully no one will mind I'm more of a CTR-er than an endurance rider. Close enough.)

I'm so excited to read about all of your adventures!
Yea! I'll live vicariously through you and hope to learn more!

I hope there is an endurance conformation thread, I know what I like but I want to see your proven endurance horses. Very cool!

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?

So excited to see this!!!

I'm not an actual endurance rider....yet. But am working towards it. I am riding a 30 mile LD ride in Colorado in June with a friend there. I am working on one of my horses to do a possible 25 LD in either Michigan or Southern Indiana in the fall. I also just got a new horse who has ridden endurance and trails so will be working on her too. She hasn't been ridden in a few years so will be starting her on LSD for this year.

I haven't been out on any trails yet, just riding the corn fields around our property and working on not spooking at every single blade of grass. So far my silly gelding is amazing me every ride. We have gone from, I can't move forward, must spin and bolt! to If Mom says it's ok, maybe I can move forward....very slowly.

Looking forward to all the info and tips that I'm sure will be included in this forum!
