Endurance riding basics: What to carry on your saddle

Here is my list along with photos showing what I carry with me when I ride.  Each person needs to figure out what works for them as we all have different needs.  I try to only carry things that I may actually need without going over-board.  If you carry too many items then it because nearly impossible to find something when you need it out on the trail.  I tend to be fairly prepared

You could be an endurance rider if….

I first read 11 -20 on the January HITM Endurance Day show.  Then, 1-10 on the February show earlier this week.

On today’s Action Rider Tack endurance episode following a few endurance rider defining nuggets from Karen we’ll visit with Connie Berto for a chat about why she loves endurance riding so much and some of her favorite rides.  Next up Barbara White provides an update on the conditions for the upcoming Tevis Cup race following the devastating fires in 2013.  In the

What to pack in your endurance crewbag

Cewbags going to the out vet check for lunch. Grand Canyon XP 2013.

I am always getting asked what to put into a crewbag for an out vet check. There really isn’t any one answer or list that will work for everybody in every situation. Mostly you want to remember to pack food for your horse, a blanket if one might be needed and then anything else you as a rider might need.

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.

Pro Bono’s 3rd Tevis – What a Ride! Part 1

Tevis Rider Swag Bag – we got lots of goodies this year!

We had a great ride this  year.  Everything fell into place for us in so many ways.  I actually entered early and planned ahead for the ride this year.  And still managed to avoid any Gremlins!

We got up to Robie Park on Friday morning before the ride and got set up by 9 a.m..  It’s nice that we are only

http://stablescoop.horseradionetwork.com/2013/07/11/stable-scoop-episode-256-100-long-miles-of-tevis/

This interview on the Horse Radio Network Stable Scoop show is all about preparing for the Tevis. The part about Tevis starts at around 17:00.

Here is the current rider entry list.  I am rider #80.

Tevis Preparation: Here is a list of my lists

Here it is – my list of lists for the Tevis!  This includes vet check lists, crew instructions and more.  Last year I posted all of my lists for the various checks that included detailed crew instructions.  I’m going to review them and make revisions based upon how last year went, as well as update my ride times from last year.  Most of that information won’t matter to any of you that are looking

Tevis Preparation – Crew List for the Finish!

In addition to the following list, I’ll also have a page that includes everybody’s cell phone #’s.  Since I got my entry in so late, all of the stalls were taken.  It’s okay though, as they have a parking area for us to park in that will allow us to keep Bo on the trailer.    Which will make me happier, as I much prefer to be able to keep a close eye on

Tevis Preparation – Foresthill Checklist

Leaving the Foresthill vetcheck in 2010. Karen and Bo.

Foresthill is an easy spot to crew as there is plenty of room to park and it’s easy to get to.  The most important thing here is to get the horse in and cooled down so that you can pulse in and vet through right away.  The pulse criteria is now 64 and will be at that or higher from here to the finish
