PLEASE NOTE: ALL equine entries in all our rides, without exception,
are to be wearing four shoes, or an equivalent hoof protection (which include boots or glue-ons) at the start of the ride. The mountain trails on which our endurance competition takes place can be exceptionally difficult
to strap-on boots, so we strongly suggest you might want to consider gluing any boots on.

the most current AERC Rules (found on the aerc.org website), especially if competing for the 1st time.
