Overview

The sport of Endurance Riding was established in the UK in the 1960's and was controlled by various organisations until Endurance Great Britain was created in 2001 to govern the sport, from the grass route leisure rider to the international teams.

There has not been a book published in the UK covering endurance since 1999 and the author, Karen David, wished to address this. The book is aimed at all levels of endurance rider from the first timer to the seasoned campaigner, with encouragement and advice given throughout.

The chapters cover: a history of the sport up to the birth of Endurance Great Britain; how endurance is organised and how to progress through the various levels; selecting a suitable horse; how to begin competing; how to ride a successful endurance ride; feeding and nutrition; alternative therapies; shoeing; training; transporting the horse incorporating UK Legislation; equipment; competing and the support team necessary to help the combination achieve their potential.
