I think we have come to the conclusion that my Arabian gelding sadly won't be able to be my endurance horse due to navicular pain. He's 16. He will just be my show horse. My other option for an endurance mount is a 10 year old appendix gelding. He's still underweight right now. But you can barely see his ribs. I rode him a little bit the other day and he's a big ball of energy! Just wants to go! He walks with a purpose but he's very controllable. He's built a lot like a tb. A bit uphill in build and good muscling in his rear end. I'll have to put a picture on here later today. He's a hair under 16 hands. Has anyone ever had or heard of an appendix successfully competing in endurance or limited distance? This horse will also be my show horse and maybe barrels. I ride English and western. Also he basically has a shark fin. I don't know if this will change when he gets up to his normal weight and gets a top line?
