They race Saddlebreds over there? Or did you mean Standardbreds?

People have looked at me funny when I talk about having worked with arab racehorses.. I can't imagine racing saddlebreds!


There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

I have heard that Saddlebreds do well in endurance. I don't know of any first hand.

Here is one thing I found about a Saddlebred endurance racer. http://www.saddlebred.com/files/endurancearticle.pdf

I think people tend to overlook this breed for "other disciplines" that are not "prancy show horse" related. When you see them in the ring, you likely don't think, "man, I bet they can go all day." That said, I have had several that I swear, I couldn't wear them out. Riding all day on long trail rides they would come back ready to go and my friends horses (other breeds) were dragging their butts behind them. This is why I wondered about them for endurance.

I am curious. IF someone were wanting to get involved in endurance riding. Where would you suggest they start?

Every country has their own association, if you Google the country you are from and endurance horse riding, the results should point you in the right direction.
