Hello Jorge,

How exciting that you are interested in the sport - and that
you are making every effort to maintain the high standards
that have been the trademark of endurance.

Here is information for contacting AERC, the
American Endurance Ride Conference. This is the governing
and organizing body in the United States. AERC has several
publications, including an endurance handbook and rules
and regulations. These would be of great benefit to you
in understanding how the sport is run in the United States.

AERC Administrative Office
701 High Street, Suite 203
Auburn, CA 95603
PHONE (916) 823-2260
FAX (916) 823-7805
Email: AERCMIKI@aol.com

AERC also has an international committee. You may want
to contact the chairman:

Chuck Gray, President<BR>

Also, I will forward this message to the internet endurance
group, endurance@moscow.com. There are over 500 members of
this group, representing many different countries. You may
get responses from spanish-speaking individuals that can
help you out.

Best of Luck!
