Longevity and Endurance Horses

Chief wearing his AERC Decade Team Blanket.

Before I get to writing about the Bryce XP, I thought I’d throw out a post answering some of the questions that I get asked about how do I keep my horses going for so long, both in years and in miles.

There are lots of ways to be successful in the sport of endurance riding.  What works for me, may not work for somebody else.

Outlaw to Bryce GPS Ride 2013

Point to point rides are among my favorite rides.  The only other P2P ride I’ve done this season was Tevis, so I figured that on this one I’d take Chief.

Chief really does best on those kinds of rides, or at least on the ones where we are out of camp all day.  It’s a lot of fun to be ‘going somewhere’.  Kind of what makes continuing to do endurance worth doing for me

Outlaw and Virgin XP 2013

Long story short, after I got to the camp at Outlaw and Virgin and got all set up and disconnected my truck it wouldn’t start a couple of hours later.  We have good cell service in this camp so I called US Rider and they sent the tow truck to take my truck to the diesel mechanic in Kanab.

The problem ended up being human caused.  Somebody previously had replaced o-rings in the high

Endurance Day for October – Riders from 9 to 89

I know I’m having a great time being a co-host on the Horse Radio Network for the Endurance Day show.

The show has been quite popular so far and hopefully we will be able to keep improving the ratings.

This month we interviewed junior rider Lacey Bainbridge, who is the 9 year old junior that is currently leading in the AERC National Mileage Junior category.  She did such a great job, especially considering

2013 Grand Canyon XP

I just got home from spending more than a month in Arizona and Utah.  I had a great adventure with my horses Chief, Bo and Maya (my dog).  The best part is that we were able to ride all 14 days (700 miles) of rides, split evenly between both horses.  We also got in some great rides scouting and/or marking trail as well.

The weather wasn’t very cooperative at the Grand Canyon though in
