any ctr/endurance riders here live in NJ area

Hi all I am new to this forum. I have a twh gelding who needs a job other then leisure trail riding as he is getting bored with it. So I was wondering if anyone here from pa or nj wants to get together and train for a ctr/endurance race. I have never done it before and would like to, just need a conditioning partner to point me in the right direction.
This is my horse denny below. If you can see the picture.

Hi Kait - Wish I was closer - I'm thinking the same thing but in Illinois. I have a Rocky that needs a different job...he is not happy on nice quiet trail rides anymore, so thought maybe i'd play around with ld endurance. Keep us posted on your rides!

Nice that is not too far my horses are in Lafayette I know of one trail over by me that goes from Lafayette into the town of Sussex but that's it. I just got back on my mare the other day She hasn't been ridin in over a year so I'm going to be riding her more before I take her out on a trail. She's an ex race horse and has a lot of energy but I'm finally gaining her trust. I plan on getting her on a trail soon so but it would def be cool to meet up sometime and train our horses for this. Do you happen to know of anywhere near here that does the endurance trail riding? All the ones I found were in south jersey

I just did my first AERC LD 25 mile ride in South Carolina, was a good time. My horses but was kicked though. I didnt really have time to get him in as good a shape as I would have liked. II wanted to get a ride in before spring though. I may look at some upcoming NJ /PA/MD rides in the spring. As I am hooked. And glad to see another walker. The vet at the vet checks was kinda stumped when my horse gaited.

nutshell whenever you feel you guys are ready let me know. I plan on riding throughout the winter to get my new arabian and the guy above in beter shape when he gets healed and gets his manners back :/
But the only ones I saw were in south jersey and pa. I have 2 horse bumper pull so if we decide to go solo we can drive to whereever together and figure stuff out :)
