    Ill try to get a video up of me, I will say even without the gaited bias you need to step it out, your not moving fast enough. The coming towards camera, you can see a stutter in the back. Now I know its a gaited issue. Your horses front feet are trying to gait and back trying to trot, alot of vets going to call lame. Gotta step it out some.

    Thanks for the pointers, his first LD is in about 3 weeks.

    So much for Comanche's first 40km LD. He had a little float mishap about 5 days before the race. He had a little inflammation in his right back leg from the float accident. As a result I pulled him from the race, just was not worth risking further injury :).

    Sorry he got hurt. I hope he gets better.
    But what is a "float mishap"? I think we have a cross-cultural communication gap going on here..

    This forum is evil, making me fall in love with TWH's... This is only making me love them more.

    I'm also finding this fascinating, since I know very little about endurance riding apart from the fact that I would love to give it a shot one day. Ever since the Tom Quilty (a 160km/100 mile ride to be completed in 24 hours) was held where I live, I've been in love with the idea. I was so confused with the whole 'LSD' thing, I couldn't stop thinking about horses on acid.

    I'm looking forward to hearing how you and Comanche go, usdivers :) Hopefully there will be no more float mishaps.

    I have to say, I am getting more an more interested in endurance. I am too old and too out of shape to do this myself but I am enjoying learning more about it through all of you.

    Hope your TWH can show them how it is done. :)

    Do any of you know of any Saddlebreds that are doing endurance? I have heard that some of them do very well. I can imagine they would since they seem to be able to go forever and that is when they are not in the condition the endurance horse is.

    We do have a few Saddy's in the competition here in Australia, but none of them have done very well. Hard to find an unraced one that does not pace. But generally they have pretty good feet. All in all it's hard to compete with Arabs. Over here the competition is sparce in the HW division, that's why I think my TWH may have a chance in that area.
