By definition, endurance riding is a horse race against the clock over natural terrain. The winner is the first horse to cross the finish line and pass the final vet judging.

In reality, endurance can be anything you want it to be -- from a strategic racing endeavor to a glorified trail ride.

On the links below, we will take you through an endurance ride step-by-step ... from the start to the finish line, including hints and tips and gems of insight that would have taken you years to figure out yourself. We will escort you down the trail, and even to a multi-day ride, to give you a vibrant picture of what awaits you in this incredible equine distance sport.

All sanctioned U.S. endurance rides are run under the rules and guidelines of the American Endurance Ride Conference (AERC) which is the official national governing body for endurance riding in the United States. Upcoming rides and ride results, AERC horse and rider records, and national and regional awards can be found on the AERC website.
