Introduction to Endurance Riding Clinic
Sunday, April 23, 9:00am - 1:00pm
Sponsored by Santa Cruz County Horsemen’s Association and Quicksilver Endurance Riders
This clinic is geared toward people who would like to learn more about the sport of endurance riding, and riders new to the sport, either contemplating their first event or in their first season or two of competition.
Topics covered will include how an endurance ride is run, basic rules of competition, conditioning for horse and rider, camping with your horse, how the vet check works, crewing at a ride, tack and equipment, trailer safety and more.
The format will be a short classroom session in the morning, followed by hands on demonstration stations dedicated to various topics, with participants rotating through the stations. You may bring your horse if you would like to practice taking him through the vetting procedure – but a horse is not required to participate.
There is an optional guided "sample" endurance trail (2-3 miles) which you can ride after lunch if you would like to see the type of terrain to expect and how your horse responds to this fun sport.
Location: SCCHA Graham Hill Showgrounds, 1251 Graham Hill Road in Santa Cruz.
Showground Rules: No smoking except in your vehicle. Dogs must be on leash at all time. Please clean up after your horse – Leave No Trace!
