Columbus, OH --- The USTA’s Standardbred Equine Program has teamed up with the American Endurance Ride Conference to present the “Standardbred Endurance Award” for 2011. The award will be given to the Standardbred that has the most miles ridden during the season (Dec. 1, 2010–Nov. 30, 2011).
All rides will be considered, including the limited distance 25-35 mile rides, and standard endurance rides (50-plus miles)."

Wouldn't it be fantastic if AERC would enter into agreements with all the major breed registries? It would level the playing field of endurance that you could compete against your breed of choice. The only other breed associations I know of currently that offer any kind of award to their distance horses are the Appaloosa and Saddlebred Associations. It especially excites me that they are giving Limited Distance the okay too. Go STANDIES!
