 Endurance riding demands much of horse and rider, who must compete against time, gravity, and the elements and cover 25 to 100 miles a day. Riders need the expert information this book provides on selecting, feeding, and conditioning the horse, and on buying equipment and selecting a support crew. Donna Snyder-Smith is editor/publisher of Trail Blazer magazine and travels from her home in Union, California, to teach students from novices to Gold Medalists.
