Have you ever wanted to ride down a country lane or a pine forest path and feel a special connection with your horse? Does the thought of challenging yourself and your horse on the paths of history—where pioneers, Pony Express riders and Native Americans have traveled before you—set your imagination on fire? If so, you're an endurance rider at heart. Although The Complete Guide to Endurance Riding and Competition offers training insights and insider information on the new and dynamic sport of endurance riding, it is also a valuable resource for pleasure, competitive trail, and experienced endurance riders alike. Non-riders (family or friends) who have volunteered or have been drafted to serve as "crew" will find the special tips in the chapter on crewing tremendously helpful. The book addresses the important concepts of rider balance and the gymnastic training of the horse in achieving the overall success of the long-distance team. Donna Snyder-Smith's commonsense approach to conditioning, feeding, tack and equipment, and the mental preparation of the horse and rider all lay the foundation for a long and successful association with endurance riding. It does not matter whether your goal is to experience the joys of trail riding or the adrenaline high that comes from an all-out race to the finish, The Complete Guide to Endurance Riding and Competition will help you reach it.
