I was hoping a Mule or Donkey rider would've chimed in by now. I LOVE to see them out there kickin' butt.
Actually it's funny, I have always wanted a mule but they are somewhat pricey around here (compared to horses anyway)! :)

Mules have stamina and a very high drive for self-preservation. I've heard a lot of people love them for endurance because, whie an Arab will over-work itself giving everything it's got and more and depend on the rider to decide when enough is enough, a mule will end your ride for you if there's a problem lol.

The sire puts good bone on his babies, and I know you want something solid to support your weight. The horse has already been gelded, so don't have to worry about hormones causing issues.

[FYI, I used to work at Cre-Run and that is where Dream was bred.]
I saw you on several of the pages. Id have to have something already trained and trail sane. A horse trainer I am not. Money for a horse isnt really the issue, its room. I just can't keep 3 horses and I have 2 now. Aubre something out in Ky has a couple good looking Lapca(sp) arabians. In the 3-5 k range. ALso still loving that pinto NSH down in suffolk, 7/8th arabian but people say he has skinny legs. If I hadnt bought Emma last summer I would have gotten him.

WELL,
First we have Zoey a 9yr old TB who does regular 40kms(24 1/2miles) with successful completion. Her runs include a 40km training ride mid summer(came 3rd) . Second is another summer 40km ride(she hadn't been in work for three weeks before hand) Successful completion. We have another 40km coming up soon as well.
Then we have Barney. A 6-7yr old OTT STB who regularly does 40km's. He has done the same as Zoey and a breast cancer charity ride. I don't know how long that one was. I think 20km. In 2013 he will be doing 80km(50miles).
Then we have two up and coming baby's. They are one year off competing.
Minty is an OTT STB who will be competing in 2014.
Allira is a young brumby taken from the wild and will also be competing in 2014. Also once we get ether a truck or bigger float we will be taking out the big boy.
Benny, and OTT STB(17.3hh ish). We are getting STB's off the track and retraining them in to endurance. The STB's are so rare in endurance but we are making them an up and coming breed, or at least trying. I will post photo's when I get them on the computer.

Actually I know some people in GA that have a half Arabian mule. She will be doing her first 50 mile race this season.

I've got a four year old mustang that I'm conditioning. He won't be able to do anything more than an LD for a year. I just couldn't bring myself to buy an Arabian. I've never had any luck with them and I've ridden them on and off for fifteen years. Just not my breed I guess

I have found very few pony breeds in endurace, so this is a Welsh/Arab cross. She is pretty small, but she has the endurance of an Arabian but the self preservation and take care of herself attitude of a pony (a little bit sassy but smart and not a moon-brain). While she is stout, she has a very low resting heart rate and is strong. Not completely typical as at the last race, she was the second smallest horse there ... the smallest horse was an 8 year old's pure Shetland pony (which was super, super cute)! This girl's doing a 50 on her next go out, so we will see how it goes. :)

Woo, a brumby! I want to get into endurance in the future with either a STB or a brumby. I wanna see photos!

What about an atypical CTR horse? This is Baby Girl. She's a 7-year-old SSH who regularly does two day 50s. She won National High Point SSH this year, and we're going to try for a National Championship in 2013.
