About the Author:

Author Aarene Storms returned to horses as an adult after wasting her teen years becoming educated and employed. In 1999 she rode her first long-distance event on a short and opinionated Standardbred mare called Story. She has been active in the endurance community ever since. An advocate for junior riders, equestrian trails, and novice endurance horse-and-rider teams, Aarene has written numerous articles for Endurance News and other equestrian publications. Her adventures in the saddle and on the ground are documented with tongue firmly-in-cheek at the Haiku Farm blog. Aarene now rides in the Pacific Northwest region on a tall and opinionated Standardbred mare called Fiddle.

Review:

"I wish I had this book when I discovered endurance riding!" -- Julie Suhr, endurance legend and author of Ten Feet Tall, Again "If the sport of Endurance Riding has intrigued, or intimidated, you, Endurance 101 is the next best thing to a two-legged mentor. Aarene unravels the mysteries of getting you and your horse to the starting line, through your first ride, and through what happens afterwards, always with the goals of caring properly for your horse and having fun. The book is geared towards beginners, but it's also a humorous, delightful and useful read for the established endurance rider who knows everything but might have forgotten something along the way." Merri Melde, equestrian photographer and endurance journalist, writer at The Equestrian Vagabond and author of Soul Deep in Horses. "
