Is Distance Riding For You? Don’t let the word “Distance” scare you. Remember that in the days before automobiles, horses routinely traveled distances of 25 miles or more. It was a necessity; it was the only way to travel. Horses are not fragile or wimpy creatures and any good horse, healthy and in good condition, should be able to go the distance in stride.
The purpose of the IDR/D division within SEDRA’s awards program is to introduce distance riding/driving to those who would like to sample the sport and for those experienced riders and /or horses no longer able to complete a longer course. IDR/D events will count ONLY towards Lifetime mileage for horse and riders and no other SEDRA awards.
The general idea of IDDs and IDRs is that they are a shorter version of the MO (Mileage Only) program that is already in place.
Looking for a new challenge? Would you like to learn more about your horse, your partnership and how far you can go? Have you wondered what it’s all about? Come join a great group of people and find out! Another great discipline for you and your horse to discover, get the family involved and go the distance! TO FINISH IS TO WIN!!
