Trail & Distance : ApHC Distance Program
Endurance And Competitive Trail Riding

Are you looking for a venue to challenge you and your horse? Join the friendly competitive spirit of Endurance and Competitive Trail Riding.

Though similar on the surface, these two competitions are quite different. Both are distance rides and both employ veterinarians to monitor the health and well-being of the horse. However, while endurance rides are races to complete a course in the fastest time, Competitive Trail Ride participants must complete the course within a set window of time while being judged on various aspects of horsemanship. Distances may range from 25 to 100 miles.

The ApHC Distance Program records mileage of competitions completed by your Appaloosa to be tallied for awards.

Since 2006, the ApHC has sponsored a National Championship Endurance Ride at various locations around the country. We hope you and your endurance Appaloosa will attend this prestigious event.
