I guess I should clarify I wouldn't be training for an endurance ride...not on my big boy. But I could start out with the fitness training and then bail when it gets to be more intense than Jakie boy could handle.

Also please note, I know nothing about the endurance discipline! Other than it sounds like a boatload of fun!

jake and dai- i know nothing as well. i am going off of that it is fun and worth trying :) plus it will be a good adventure. i hear they do somesort of limited distance driving ;). i am not in it for the win just the enjoyment so if my guys don't like it we will be stopping so no pressure from me :)

and i will be starting slow with lots of walking. my guys are usually all sweaty after 3 hours of just walking and some trotting. so we are very out of shape :)

nutshell am looking forward to it:)

Unless we get lucky and someone puts on a new ride this season, the closest rides to you are the ones in south/central jersey. Rabbit Run (which takes place in Pemberton Township, just north of the 70/72 circle) will be in March (dont think its hit the aerc calendar yet), generally its the 3rd weekend but since March has 5 weekends this year, not sure if that will change the timing.

The fall Jersey ride, Mustang Memorial, takes place in Greenbank, NJ (which is near Chatsworth) and its normally the second weekend in November.

You may want to look into ECTRA, which is a CTR organization, for more rides in our area. They aren't run exactly like endurance rides are, but they can be great tools. I know NJTRA runs several rides throughout the year in Jersey, just not sure if any are more north.

I don't know anybody up your way off the top of my head that endurance rides (they are all down here closer to me, near Trenton). AERC used to have a mentor list, but it appears to be under construction atm.

Once I am more familiar with the trails around my barn, I would love to have you down and we can all condition together. I don't have a trailer, but am shopping for one. So perhaps we could even meet in the middle once we all have transport!

There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

sounds like a plan keep me posted. it would be nice to have a partner to condition with especially since i am so new at it. lots of learning.

i was going to do the mustang ride this past year but it ended up not working out for me. but i will have to get down there and try those events and maybe try one or 2 in md/va and see how it goes
