AUBURN, California – July 13, 2015 – The American Endurance Ride Conference (AERC) has signed an agreement to become the Title Sponsor of the Horse Radio Network’s popular monthly Horses in the Morning “Endurance Day” radio show that airs online from 9:00-10:30 a.m. EDT on the second Tuesday of each month. The ‘Endurance Day’ show is hosted by accomplished endurance rider and AERC member, Karen Chaton, and is among the most popular on Horses in the Morning, drawing tens of thousands of listeners for each episode.
This month’s show, which airs on Tuesday, July 14, will focus on the iconic 100-mile, one-day Western States Trail Ride (commonly known as the Tevis Cup) which begins on August 1 at 5:15 a.m. and features 200 riders representing 24 U.S. states and 10 countries.

Many special events of four to six consecutive days take place over historic trails, such as the Pony Express Trail, the Outlaw Trail, the Chief Joseph Trail, and the Lewis and Clark Trail. The founding ride of endurance riding, the Western States Trail Ride or Tevis Cup, covers 100 miles of the famous Western States and Immigrant Trails over the Sierra Nevada Mountains. These rides promote awareness of the importance of trail preservation for future generations and foster an appreciation of our American heritage.
