The Long Riders' Guild

Associate Members of The Long Riders' Guild

The Guild is not elitist. Long Riders realize that each individual experience has a value all of its own, that other Long Riders are Comrades not Competitors and that at the end of the day what matters is personal validation. Under certain circumstances geographic or governmental problems may make it impossible for a person to complete a one thousand mile ride. Associate Members are those people who have ridden at least 500 miles and have expressed an interest in completing a longer life-changing equestrian journey.
