Endurance riding is a test of stamina, discipline, fitness and patience and has been traditionally known as the ultimate challenge in equestrian sports.   In this supreme test of horsemanship, the rider must know his mount well enough to bring them through a guelling day of riding over long distances and with terrain that will test the hardest of hearts - all while keeping the horse’s heath and condition paramount.
