What's your ride??

Arabians might be the most popular horse for competing in endurance, but ANY horses can be used! What do you ride and why?

I ride a full-blood Arabian gelding (7 years old). I originally had a 2-year-old AQHA colt and decided I wanted a second horse I could already ride, and i discovered endurance riding during my search for a horse. I was already interested in Arabs for their personality and (of course) beauty, so why not get an Arab if I'm planning on doing endurance?? I absolutely love my boy Snickers and can't wait to start competing!

I've never ridden a gaited horse - It is on my to-do list. I hope it doesn't spoil riding my Arab and QH!

I've used mostly morgans...but my horse is 1/2 arabian, 1/2 QH! In general I love the morgans for it....

A horse is the projection of peoples' views about themselves--strong, powerful, beautiful--and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existance.

Dream is a 12 year old purebred arab.

We just started our 6th AERC season together.

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

My 17 year old Half Arab, Half Quarter Horse mare and I will be competing in our first CTR next weekend, and will hopefully do well enough to go on to longer distances! She has spent most of her life as a hunter and western pleasure show horse, so it will be a big change, but one I think she'll really enjoy!

Great horses guys! Phantomhorse- just out of curiousity, what kind of MH is that (if it even is a MH)? It looks quite a bit 'nicer' than some of them that I've run into!

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.
