I think from your avatar name that you are from the Methow Valley, no?
I live in Bellevue, so I know where the Methow is. Check into the Washington Backcountry Horsemen. They could put you in touch with folks do CTR. There's also the CTRA comp . Trail riding assoc. Organization and they do rides in Washinton. My friend just did one near here. Just a one day affair and entry was $50. So, not outrageous but the longer ones could get a bit pricey. But for days of fun? Its' a bargain!
Wish I had a trailer, I'd be doing it all the time. I don't own, but lease a great Appy trail horse. From what I have seen, smarts and responsiveness to the rider are more important than endurance. You will be judged on the way you complete the various obstacles, not on your overall speed.
