Region 18 Endurance news March 2007:

CSHA Region 18's Endurance program coincides with the CSHA State Endurance program and the AERC's competition year.

Renie Burnett and Czentinel are our 1st place Featherweight Endurance winners in California State Horsemen's Association Region 18 for 2008 as well as being the Overall High Point Endurance Horse winner and High Point Best Condition Horse for Region 18 2008
Renie and Czentinel are also 2nd place featherweight for CSHA State Endurance program 2008.

Renie Burnett has been riding Endurance longer then any other Region 18 CSHA member.
Renie has been in the AERC (American Endurance Ride Conference) for over 25 years and has done Limited Distance (rides under thirty miles) as well as Endurance (rides over fifty miles).
She started endurance riding in 1983 with a horse that she had raised and trained, her wonderful buckskin 1/2 Arab "Windsock".  She retired Windsock from endurance riding after he had his 1000 mile medallion at 18 years old. 
Czentinel was also raised and trained by Renie, and they have had a lot of fun on the endurance trail.  Renie is hopeful that they will have many more years of competing

Renie completed her first 100 mile ride in 2007 (on Czentinel).. Czentinel tripped and fell on a rocky hill, and she rode the last 40 miles with a broken collar bone...she endured in the true sense of the word.
Renie has 2235 miles of Endurance rides, 385 Limited Distance miles, and 50 completions out of 51 starts to date.(1983-2008)
Czentinel  has 1235 Endurance miles, 110 Limited Distance miles and has 26 completions out of 26 starts, and 2 Best Condition awards and numerous top ten finishes to date.(2004-2008)
Renie and Czentinel were 5th place featherweight In the AERC regional point standings for the West region in 2008.

Renie was first a member of CSHA through the Petaluma Riding and Driving club way back in the 70's.  She belonged to the PR&D club for 5 or 6 years. 
She later was a member through  Palo Cedro Riders, that was in 1998.  She had to resign from PCR when her husband became disabled to be able to spend more time with him.  Clarissa Hale (Region 18 Endurance Chair in 2005) suggested that Renie join CSHA and the Endurance Program at the Whiskeytown Ride in 2005.  Renie and Czentinel won the CSHA State Featherweight Endurance Buckle in 2006.
She has continued membership in CSHA and the Endurance Program to the present date. (2009) Renie is 59 years young and lives in Anderson CA.
She really thinks the CSHA endurance program is terrific, and has lovely awards, too.
