Endurance riding is a timed athletic event for both the horse and rider. The event is open to all breeds of equine
(horses, mules and ponies). The goal is to follow a marked trail in the proper direction as described by ride
management. The second goal is to ride the marked trail as quickly as the condition of the horse allows,
successfully passing all vet checks and finishing with a sound horse.
                                      “To Finish is to Win”
Camping: This is a primitive base camp on private property consisting of a large flat field with horse water
troughs. There is ample room for campers; however, no electricity. Port-a-potties provided. Dogs must be on a
leash at all times. There are restaurants, motels and stores in Alamogordo 12 miles away.

Trails: Trails consist of mainly two track, single track and some sand dunes. All trail is natural, with hardly any
rocks, hoof protection is not required for this ride.

Vet checks: will be in base camp.
