The first book geared specifically towards beginning endurance riders, Endurance 101 is a step-by-step guide to getting started in the sport of endurance, from selecting a horse and tack to training for the trail, conditioning, feeding and competition, along with advice for solving problems along the way. Author Aarene Storms' easy narrative style will guide you down the trail, and the numerous photographs, illustrations, anecdotes and informative sidebars will give you an insider's view of endurance riding. The appendix is packed with links so you can connect with other endurance riders in your region via discussion groups and regional organizations, find endurance-specfic tack and more articles and books. Aarene Storms has been an endurance rider and writer for many years, contributing articles to "Endurance News" and other equestrian publications, and is a regular competitor at rides in the Pacific Northwest with her Standardbred mare Fiddle.
