We developed the Endurance Team when we realized the need, and demand, for a structured program to help immerse students of all ages, and horses, into the sport of endurance. They have certain goals that have to be met to be able to attend AERC sanctioned events, including lessons in the arena, trail, rider fitness, volunteer hours on the trail, and more!
Our requirements for the Endurance Team members are be a minimum of 7yrs old, and must be able to comfortably walk, trot, and canter in the arena in a group lesson on the horse which they will be riding on the trail. Riders must then become confident on the trail and we will begin talking about entering your first endurance ride. Owning a horse is not a requirement, we offer horses for lease on a first come first served basis. Spots on the Team are limited and we have a waiting list.
When you become a member of the Endurance Team, you will recieve coaching both in the arena and on the trail. This includes horsemanship, nutrition, conditioning, mentoring on rides, assistance with selecting and managing a suitable Endurance Horse, first access to special offer clinics on saddle fit, veterinary care, horse management, and so much more!!!
