The most important in an endurance race as quickly and efficiently as possible the spread of a preset route. The distance honor varies from 25 km to 160 km!
From the beginning of the 17th century, we can talk about something more or less similar to the endurance ride. In 1612, the English prince Henry drove a distance of 155 kilometers in two days. He died a short time later, but it is not known whether this result it has affected. His brother went a step further; he rode 415 kilometers in just four days! Probably he exchanged horse, but it’s not safe.
The founder of modern endurance Wendell T. Robie, he was a rider who practice horse both endurance and emphasized the bond between horse and rider. In 1955 he organized America’s first long-distance race over 160 kilometers, the Tevis Cup. Afterwards, founded in the United States three different endurance compounds. Endurance Shortly thereafter, a global branch of equestrian sports, and was also established associations in other countries. Similarly in the Netherlands, were DER 6 May 1991, now KNHS Endurance Association, was formed.
The purpose of the contest is that he is as good to ride out the motto is’ to finish is to win!”.
The tests will take a very important place in endurance, if your horse does not pass the test, you can always return home. These tests are designed to check whether the horse can be, and if the condition of the horse is good enough.
The first inspection you face is to test. Here checked if the immunizations your horse properly, you need passport carry. The horse breathing is also checked, with a respiratory rate of 60 or higher, you can not start unless the physician determines that this is caused by anxiety or stress. The respiratory rate is on the veterinary card states, as well as the pulse frequency pulse must not exceed 60 per minute. Turgor and mucous membranes are also checked, the state is also mentioned on the veterinary card. When the horse’s general condition is assessed and bowel sounds are heard. If the doctor thinks it is necessary horse’s temperature can be recorded. In a poor general condition, or too high temperature will result in disqualification. If the latter is still looking at the expression or ulcers in the mouth, for example. Existing wounds do not pose any problems, these must be specified in the veterinary card. A sore back, sore on the shoulder or broken mouth are grounds for disqualification. Then you can move on to the test track is thus seen how the need and / or batter looks and how the horse moves. If the horse goes lame disqualification, when a deviation in the hallway or on a tendon sheath filled a remark made in the veterinary card.
In a class, you get about halfway through the fight against PA control. Here, the heart rate is measured, this should be less than 60 per minute. Is it higher, you get 10 minutes following a re-inspection, he is still too high, you are disqualified. Horses during the inspection a note received on their movement must sometimes under the PA to the trot again. Driving time goes into the PA as usual.
In groups 2, 3 and 4 each have at least 40 kilometers a vet gate. Immediately after costs within the vet gate, your recorded time, this is called the time of arrival. From the arrival time you have 20 minutes of time to provide your horse with the doctor, run line drive into the case continues. At the time when the heart rate is lower than 60 stops driving time, and this time is recorded as intime. From intime mandatory rest comes in, known as the hold time. If peace is the last horse again completely controlled. Horse agree with, but also without saddle offered. The moment he can be approved, the journey continues and OutTime noted. If rejected, disqualified.
For Class 1, to pulse as it passes through the finish line for 10 minutes to be seated. If so, then stop running time, it is not, then the wait is 10 minutes driving time yesterday. Is the heart rate after 10 minutes, still not among the 60 brings disqualification.
In the higher classes, stop driving immediately after the finish and cause the heart rate does not matter, it will be recorded and put on the vet card.
30 minutes after stopping the driving horse must nagekeurd , here we see the same issues during the inspection. If the horse does not pass post-control well, is still hitting.
In endurance you speak of four levels, called classes. Class one is the shortest distance and class four longest.
