Horse Endurance Racing

I Must Be Crazy - An American Vet Student in Australia

On Saturday I got the opportunity to help out at a horse endurance race in Harvey, WA. Before Saturday, I had no idea what a horse endurance race even was. It was very interesting and a lot of fun. There were approximately 70 riders all together with some doing only 40km and some doing a 3 day 240 km ride. Most of the horses were Arabians and very well trained to do endurance riding. The bond that the riders and horses had were amazing. I am not much of a horse person, but I was impressed.

Three of my classmates and myself were volunteers at the event...
