After a devastating shoulder injury this Spring at Race the Trace, Annabelle is back in training. We are hoping to do a 50 at the Biltmore in September. I took her up to Falling Waters this past weekend and she did very well with all the hills. So far there is no sign of lameness. Everyone says that she looks great and should have no problem with a 50 as long as I can stay on her back. I have great friends.

This is a voluntary blog-meaning I did not put it together-the great feedback we are getting from the new ''how to'' DVD for those wanting to learn how to do bodywork yourself in easy step by step approach, to keep your endurance horse soft-supple-sound adding to longevity and a smoother ride.

I went to the Horse and rider endurance ride last week end. Had a great time riding and visiting with friends. I rode Taffy (my wife horse) 25 miles on Saturday and on Sunday. W/O being conditioned at all she got best condition both days. She is a great horse.

INSTRUCTIONS for installing
Goober Glue is a one part polyurethane adhesive that gets tacky in about 15 minutes if mixed with a little water, with a full cure in 24 hours. It is a very rubbery substance and adheres to both the hoof and the boot very well.
NEW: Mix 5 pumps of "GG" with 5ML (1/2 teaspoon) of water and mix well for 60 seconds, this will cuts tack time way down. This is enough… Continue

The Long Horse Ride relaunch last week went off without hitch see http://thelonghorseride.blogspot.com/2009/08/zou-ba-were-off.html and we have been making fairly good progress, covering over 100 miles across the North China grasslands. The photo shows Li Jing and Hua on Zorbee and Shandan somewhere near Hua De in Inner Mongolia.
Unfortunately on Wednesday Li Jing was injured when Zorbee got overexcited and fell over in a hole. He has broken the… Continue

I'm taking Mr Roobarb on his first almost-Endurance ride on Saturday. Its only
a Social ride but will be a good introduction - it's only about 1/2hr away in
the trailer, large spacious venue (in case it all gets a bit exciting) and it's
a route that rides fairly slowly i.e not too many open fields and long bowling
canters and mainly quiet lanes.
We're only doing the 11km (6 mile) route so if I spend most of it walking at the
side I'll still be home for tea… Continue

I live in San Diego and sold my Arabian mare when I moved to San Diego from the foothills of the Sierras a few years ago. I had just started to get into endurance riding and loved it. I have rode all my life, but love Arabians and am looking for a lease or maybe helping out with training and getting some miles in. I have good references and can be reached at 619-250-9217. Please let me know if you know someone, thank you,Lisa

Here I am on Ba Jiu during a wonderful morning ride through the Chinese countryside of northern Hebei. The ride relaunch officially starts tomorrow, apparently to the accompaniment of fireworks, which could prove interesting. My new Kanteq body protector may come in useful sooner than I expected!
Wutala has persuaded me to attend the endurance race in Inner Mongolia, even if though I have turned down a ride - I think he is angliing to get me at… Continue

Another first for my new 4 yr old mare last weekend (pictured above). She had her first big girl camping trip! Only her 2nd time off the property she's known all her life as well, and I was very happy with how she did. More pics at http://www.my-endurance.net/photo/albums/1st-camping-trip
We went to Greensfelder Park, which is the home of No Hands Roller Coaster Ride in St. Louis. It's got great hills (for us flatlanders :)), and the… Continue

Back in Guyuan to meet up with the horses again. Yesterday they were all shod traditional Chinese fashion, strapped to a shoeing frame, which rather resembles an instrument of torture - some horses might agree! The photo shows the patient Bajiu taking his turn.

I used to be one of those people who looked at Endurance Riders whizzing by on their arabs and said "not for me, thank you very much" but that all changed in September 2004 when I was asked to have an Advanced arab mare, Crusaders Angel, on loan over the winter whilst her owner competed in Dubai.
I was hooked on arabs from that first ride when I rode her over to my yard - it was only a couple of miles but I loved every second of it. I joined Endurance GB at the start of the 2005… Continue
