Spreading the word

There is a discussion going currently on the PNER list about spreading
information on endurance riding to attract more riders to the sport,
particularly junior riders.  One of the questions raised is: If you had
only 30 seconds (as you would if you manned a booth at an all-discipline
horse show) to tell people what endurance riding is all about, what would
you say in those 30 seconds?

Has anybody approached adult and youth riding groups (local horse clubs,
4H, etc.) about endurance education or incorporating programs into their
clubs?  If so, was it successful?  

Are there any videos out there that would cover the basics for those that
are interested?  I have a classroom/lounge set-up out by the arena that has
a TV and VCR and the VCR gets a lot of use by boarders, people waiting on
those in lessons, etc.  It would be nice to have a video available that
would explain endurance riding and the basics for those that are
interested.  I have the one done at the Tevis a couple of years ago with
Potato R., but I'm looking for one that is a bit more basically instructional.
