With the prestigious Tevis Cup Ride just two weeks away (Aug. 9, to be exact), I figure it's only fitting I devote a blog post to a sport I know hardly anything about: endurance trail riding. During this 100-mile event, nearly 200 horses will attempt the trek across rugged California mountain terrain within a 24-hour time frame. The best of the best will be able to complete their ride on a healthy horse in approximately 14 or 15 hours, but half of the starters likely won't even finish. Why? Because this type of grueling ride can take its toll on horses. - See more at: http://cs.thehorse.com/blogs/winning-edge-performance-horse-health/archive/2014/07/23/top-5-endurance-horse-issues.aspx#sthash.uTHaS1xn.dpuf
