Have you ever wanted to learn more about what it takes to compete in 25- or 50-mile endurance riding events? Join us for this fun and educational clinic to learn how to get started, or how to step up your game if you are new to the sport.

Whether you are a competitor at heart or are looking for a sport for your entire family, endurance riding has something for everyone. Endurance riding combines the opportunity of riding a challenging course with your equine partner with the camaraderie of camping and socializing with people who share your interests. In this full day clinic, you will learn • How to condition and care for your equine partner
• What the rules are at endurance events sanctioned by AERC
• What happens on the day of the ride
• Setting up a conditioning program
• How to gauge your horse’s fitness and set goals
• Tack and accessories to consider
• Feeding and supplementation for the endurance athlete
• How to pace your horse in an endurance ride

This clinic will be held at the lovely Santa Cruz County Horseman’s Association Showgrounds. We have shaded outdoor stalls for your horse to stay in, and the clinic fee includes one night of camping – your choice of Friday or Saturday night. Your instructors for the day will be several very experienced endurance riders who, together, have tens of thousands of miles of competitive experience in the sport. Through a combination of lecture, demonstration, and trail riding in small groups, we will help you increase your knowledge and skills so that you can successfully complete endurance rides with a healthy and happy horse

Cost: $50, which includes the full day clinic, lunch, and camping for you and your horse; OR $15 for the lecture and demonstrations, and lunch. We welcome all riders from any discipline, and their horses (unless auditing). For more information, contact Jill Kilty-Newburn at or Debbie Boscoe at

We are limited to 25 riders so don’t wait! For registration and payment, use this link:
