I'm just kinda wondering... I've been told by a few people, that have been around Lacey, that I should try endurance with her since she's just like "that". It sounds like it might be fun and Lacey loves new trails so if it would be easy to get into, I don't really see why we shouldn't give it a try, at least... However, I have no idea what that would entail at all.
Lacey is 25, but she's reasonably fit and really very healthy for a horse of her age. We go on about 2-3, aprox 2.5 miles over varying terrain, rides a week and she thinks nothing of that distance, even at her current relatively low level of fitness (for her). We generally mostly walk on these rides because Lacey loves to GO a little too much. But, she is really fine going at faster speeds for quite a while. She could probably trot all day if I let her, but her cantering is really not up to par. She'll be breathing really hard for quite a while after just a minute or two of cantering. However, I really haven't spent the time to get her canter fitness up so I'm sure if I took the time, she'd do just great.
Anyway, how do I get into endurance? I know nothing, tell me everything you know! :)
