good luck @ ur show! pearl and i went on our first endurance last saturday! we went 25 miles( i know i was goin to do the 10 miles but my family and trainer convinced me that pearl can do it!), the first half(12 miles) was great, it was kinda chilly and foggy but was really enjoyable. Pearl was havin fun too. well the vet checks went great and she passed with flying colors. I thought her heart rate would be high, but it was perfect. The second leg of the ride (13 miles) was a bit more challenging, pearl was getting tired and there were alot of hills. I didn't think that the people that put on the rides looked for places with hills but thats what endurance riding is kinda about so i guess i didn't do all my HW. anyways i had to get off her for this one hill, it was so steep. but soon she found her second wind and we finished 24th. im not sure out of how many, i think about 30 people did the 25 miler. The only things that went wrong was that pearl got a nasty girth sore, i thought for sure that the rope girth would fix that and the fact that i moved the entire girth attachment back. And we got lost a few times so it was kinda a waste of poor pearly's energy but it was only a few yards until i realized i was on the wrong trail. But i think pearl had fun. Im goin to stick to 25 milers and below cuz thats about all both of us can take. it was a great first time endurance ride. Oh ya i was going to spend the night over there in the trailer but my aunt rescheduled her saturday and we went really early that morning. I was happy cuz i really didnt want to stay the night there in the horse trailer by myself. It turned out great, pearl worked hard but had fun, i think she slept good that night. Bless her heart :) heres a vote
