Go the Distance
The Complete Resource for Endurance Horses
"This book should be on every endurance and competitive trail rider's shelf.... a bargain for the information it provides …you have one of the best veterinarians in the sport on-call for any endurance related question or concern.” --The Chronicle of the Horse
"This is a very good book. Loving covers equipment for the horse and rider, stable management and camp care techniques, and training, both for conditioning and schooling purposes. This book earns a blue ribbon and best condition.” --The American Quarter Horse Journal
“This is not just a book for people new to the sport of distance riding nor is it just a book for the elite competitor. It is a book that belongs in the library of every person who aspires to compete in long distance riding. It should not be left on a shelf— it should become dog-eared from easy accessibility and from frequent reading.”
To spend hour after hour on the back of a horse is a dream come true for many riders. To ride for miles—25, 50, or even 100—on a fit horse, is an extremely satisfying experience, whether done in competition or just for pleasure. This thrill does not come easily however; it requires immense dedication from the rider and a lot of hard work from the horse.
If you are an experienced long distance rider, Go the Distance is essential reading to improve your training and competitive skills. If you are thinking of trying endurance or competitive distance riding, this book will clearly and safely guide you and your horse along the miles.
