In 1971 CSHA recognized the importance of distance riding and horsemanship and formed an Endurance Rides Committee.  The purpose of this committee is to promote organized endurance rides and distance riding horsemanship.
Distance riding is not new. It is just newly rediscovered. Since the domestication of the horse thousands of years ago, riding has been man's chief means of land travel. It has only been in the fraction of that time that man has been traveling
with the use of mechanical instead of biological power.
Endurance racing as a sporting event goes back more than 100 years. Then races lasted for many days and distances of a thousand miles and more, such as that from Galveston, Texas to Rutland, Vermont, a distance of 1,799 miles, averaging a distance of 57.7 miles per day (31 days) in 1886.

CSHA Endurance is funded by Participant fees, Fundraisers and Donations.  Most of our award options are fully funded by the program fees and fundraising and donation seeking efforts of the State Endurance Chair and Vice Chair, however we may also offer award options for the participants to self sponsor.  Participants are welcome to bring in donations from businesses and individuals as well. Donations are tax deductible and receipts are available. This helps keep participation fee down and fulfills the requirements to have part of our income come from donations.  

CSHA Endurance donates toward awards for some AERC endurance rides each year and also donates to trail projects that benefit Endurance riders and other trail users. CSHA Endurance's goal is to also share funds raised with other CSHA programs when possible and CSHA State administration as well.
