Rider Ride On, by George Hilliard

George Hilliardís book about horse travel and endurance racing in America is fascinating.  Horses and humans have been partners for centuries, during which time they discovered distant lands, fought wars, blazed trails, played games, ran races and undertook some of the world's most amazing journeys together. Though the history of horses and humans is a vast topic, author Hilliard has undertaken a unique and specialized study of North American equestrian history. "Rider Ride On" is the first book of its kind in decades to document both North American Long Riders and endurance racers. Using a vast array of primary source material, as well as personal interviews, Hilliard presents a unique blend of equestrian history which specializes in documenting the most famous endurance racing events, including the Chadron to Chicago race that launched American endurance racing, as well as many of the most legendary Long Rides of the last two centuries, including Bud and Temple Abernathy's ride from New York to San Francisco in 62 days. Filled with terrific stories and great interviews, "Rider Ride On" is based on years of accurate research and contains never before seen material granted to the author from the archives of The Long Riders' Guild. Because this special book represents years of devoted academic effort, The Long Riders' Guild would like to extend a special "congratulations" to our friend and comrade, George Hilliard, for a job well done !
