I think she would work out on shorter rides. I also have a non typical horse, a huge 16.2 OTSTB trotter that racks like nobody's business (not the speed racking, which I'm sure he could do, but we do mostly a nice forward rack for trails). I have a double whammy, a big horse and in a region of the US which feels like a horse desert, I can't find any endurance or LD rides and only 1 Competitive Trail event a year.

Luv her! Congrats!

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Thanks everyone! Idrivetrotters, a lot of the rides around here are mountainous so I am hoping the cooler temps + her muscling will work to our advantage (she is the ONLY horse I tried out that didn't lose her steam going uphill). However I will probably steer clear of more southern (ie hotter) rides unless it is the middle of winter. Incidentally I also acquired a paso fino mare around the same time that I was hoping to use for LDs but turns out she has prexisting laminitis so I am waiting to see if this can be resolved before I consider her a real "prospect".
