Our friend that got us into endurance also nearly made the cut for the world endurance team several years ago. They took the top ten and she was thirteenth. I think it was in 2008, one of her horses won the AHA endurance horse of the year. Endurance takes a lot of work and dedication, but it is SO rewarding. It is a chance to really strengthen the bond with your horse and be proud of knowing you've done the best you possibly can. I'm hoping my 25 year old gelding we be able to remain my primary endurance horse until the end of his days. My 9 year old mare will do well when she starts, but I so enjoy the time I spend with my boy. If you Google "Horses in the Morning" they did a show last week featuring my friend Karen Chatton who came in 25th at Tevis this year. If I remember correctly, she is going to be doing a monthly show on endurance.
