First here is another one of Barney. Just to show his pretty face!

This was taken two weeks ago of Barney in the front and Zoey at the back. The horses decided to stand on the jumps instead of actually jumping them(it was a joke).

Then there is an actual endurance photo! Zoey in the back and Barney up front. Yes I know that she is wear a nose and flash band and her nostrils are flaring that was right at the end and I hadn't started her in the hackamore yet.

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. :)
I'm stoked to see another pony out there! I have high hopes for my boy, who is just 13.1h (unknown breeding). I have been conditioning him for about a month now and am hoping to tackle a couple of LDs this summer:)

I'm loving this thread! I've been really curious about looking into endurance or competitive trails, I'll probably have to do trails though with my monster drafties. ^^

JillyBean and PrairieWind - I Have GOT to ask?! Where did you get your bridles?(the ones in your profile pic) What are they called? What are they special for? I love them!!

Thanks! I do custom tack and can make whatever you'd like. These ones can actually be used with bit hangers to be a bridle - PM me and I can design something for you :) my website is jbarnranch.com

I used to ride a 14 year old QH x Standardbred gelding that had been competing in endurance for 10 years. He has over 3000 miles under his belt and has had way to many riders to count. He was the most reliable endurance horse I have ridden, he could out last the majority of the Arabs we faced and always had to lead the last 5 miles in order to keep moral up lol.
