I think you'll find that you have to compete on the lower distance rides first at novice level and then work your way up to open level then you can do the longer distance rides. It may be an idea for you to take your horses heart beat before you go on a hack of about 20km (12.5 miles) and then take it again on your return, that way you may have some idea of his fitness level, if there's not much change that's good!!
