Well, I have done some harder trail riding in North Dakota here in the badlands. And have gone on some really long rides in the past (ranging from 20-40ish miles). I have always ridden distance, just not with my current horse. I have never competed in an actual endurance event, all the long distance riding i have ever done has been because I enjoy it.
I have been riding since i was a child, and consider myself a rather experienced rider at the horsemanship level. Granted I am not good at showing, but i can stick my seat and have a good relationship with my horse. I was raised on the back of my grandpas arabians, from age 2-12 thats what i rode. So i guess what im trying to say is that im not a greeny :)
The people i usually ride with though go slow and my horse is a fox trotter so we like to usually fox trot or her extended trot which is kind of insanely quick. The other riders don't like this because their QH have to lope to keep up lol! So I am thinking that endurance should be right up my alley since I enjoy harder trail riding, and long distance rides on my own :) am i correct?
