I wish I had the means to do endurance. That would have been a lot of fun.

God just thinking of riding that many miles on trails is a dream! Used to go camping and went on many trails. Oh my god did we have fun! Drinking by the fire and riding on the trails.

Just wanted to clarify that not all CTRs judge the rider...none of the ones I've been to (ECTRA rides) have had a rider score...so it probably depends on where you are. As far as endurance, yes, it's tough...you'd have to be certain that you know when it's too much and when to pull your horse. Like I said, I wish that it was a requirement for somebody to complete x number of CTRs successfully before even being allowed to compete endurance...just to be sure they know how to care for their horses. :)

A horse is the projection of peoples' views about themselves--strong, powerful, beautiful--and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existance.

Thanks for all the help! I actually started researching CTR's after I posted this and sadly, even though there's a club in my state, it's way on the other side of the state. Therefore, to get to any rides, I'd have to travel for upwards of 4 hours. Add to that the fact that I don't have a trailer...Sad day. Haha

But I've decided that maybe I'll hold my own sort of CTR and set a goal for myself like "by this date, Lacey needs to be able to do X miles without being exhausted and really sweaty" since the whole idea of this was to give me a goal to work for with Lacey since I've been kinda slacking on the whole riding thing.

Fabio - 13 year old Arabian/Lipizzan gelding
Hazel - 14 year old Angora goat

Atticus - 4 year old LaMancha/Alpine cross goat

Rest peacefully, Lacey.
