    It might be different where you are, but here we have 20k social rides and 40k training rides. You can take a reasonably fit horse into either without too much preparation. Heck, as you know, I did a 20k on my barely broken unfit Latte! I think Lacey would knock down a 20k or 40k with no worries.

    We don't have CTR where I am, but it sounds great, and do agree that it would be a good starting point!

    A social ride is different than the distance rides we have here. It's a competition; people play to win. It can get pretty cut throat and crazy. As overly dramatic as it is, horses get hurt. Some people don't know their horses' limits or just try for "one more mile" or "one more day". Heat stroke can hit just as quickly as with a human, tying up, etc.

    20k... About 10 miles? Lacey could certainly handle that. 40k... About 20 miles? No problem, as long as she stays hydrated. "Serious" endurance is the only thing I wouldn't recommend.

    Yeah, if there isn't anything in your area and you know people who would want to do it then make your own one up.
