- The Upper Midwest Endurance and Competitive Rides Association (UMECRA) is a distance riding organization which sanctions endurance and competitive rides. All our endurance rides are also sanctioned by AERC.
At all rides awards are given to top six placings in heavyweight, lightweight and junior divisions. Everyone who finishes receives a completion award. Top ten year- end awards are given in both endurance and competitive--lightweight, heavyweight and junior divisions. There are also awards for restricted mileage riders, rookies, high point family, top horse mileage and others.
