26th Jan 2002 Silver's Stable
By Mary Bodel
Silver's Stable, owned and managed by 15-year-old Andrea Bodel, is an up and coming on-line simulated horse game. The game was started as a homeschool project and named for a beloved pet hamster five years ago.
Silver's Stable is designed to teach proper horse care and maintenance. Currently, besides virtual competitions, it is possible to groom, feed and play with the horses in the virtual stable.
"Most people's experiences are limited to pony rides (at parties)," Bodel states. She goes on to explain that there is more to horse ownership than just riding.
"Grooming a horse helps to make a social bond," she goes on to state. "So is feeding, but in a different way. Most people don't realize there is a science to feeding a horse. Horse's don't go if they aren't fed, and too much feed can result in colic."

An Introduction To Endurance Riding
Endurance Riding is one of the newest and perhaps the fastest growing branch of equestrianism. Although organised endurance rides were held in the US as early as the mid- 1800s, the modern sport of endurance riding really began in the in 1955 when the Tevis Cup, a one day 100 mile ride from Squaw Valley, Nevada to Auburn California, was first run. Other rides followed and the first national endurance riding association, the American Endurance Ride Conference (AERC) was founded in 1972.
Endurance Riding is a sport for everyone, with rides to suit every ability and age, from 10 mile pleasure ride right up to endurance rides of 100 miles in a day, and longer over several days.
