where and how to start

I want to spend next year doing lower level endurance rides and pleasure rides with my fell pony but have no idea about getting her or me fit for this I ride her about 4 times a week for up to 3/4 of an hour currently mainly in walk and trot.

Please help me where to begin and what equipment I will need for this. I am In the UK Lincolnshire.

Welcome to endurance!

You will need a stethoscope to learn how to take your pony's heart rate. Then, google some training charts. Endurance is really about heart rate recoveries, and knowing when your horse is ready for more, or needs a break.

Check out endurance.net, as they have a Vast amount of reading material.

Good Luck!!

Subbing because I have actually been considering this as well. Mostly because I have heard awesome things about the care endurance folks give their horses and the training process seems to be mostly trail riding which I really like.
