South Eastern Distance Riders Association Logo

Our association, SEDRA, would like to encourage all breed owner/riders to develop an interest in the sport of long distance riding and we need your help! There are many breeds of equines, mules and ponies including yours that are capable of competing safely in this sport with the right conditioning and we would like to encourage your members to share our interests!

We offer a variety of activities for the whole family, friends, co-workers and club members. Riding trails, enduring nature's obstacles, camping, learning to manage oneself and your riding partner on long distances, are a few activities that we enjoy!

SEDRA will help you gain greater knowledge in the selection, care and use of the distance horse, no matter the breed. Competition is open to all breeds of horses, mules and ponies.

We would like to provide the information about your Distance Award Program to our membership and those who have an interest, so that they can get the recognition they deserve. We have members that are competing with many gaited and non-gaited breeds besides the Arab, such as Mules, Walkers, Quarter Horses, Paints, Moyles, just to name a few. To start we would like to promote your breed by linking up to your website, one link to your awards information to be placed on our Award Programs page under a Breed Award category and another link to your Home Page placed on our Reference Menu - Links page of our web site and in exchange, promote Distance Riding by placing our website link on to yours. If you could send us some marketing material so that we can have it able to our members and non-members participating in our clinics, that would be great!

If more information is needed please let us know what else we can offer or what direction we need to take, to make this award opportunity/link exchange happen for all of our members!

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Caren Stauffer
