Endurance hopeful here. ;)

MY boy's a ranch/cow bred QH so far as I know, so maybe we'll never be rockstars at it, but there's still a very long way to go before we max out our potential. So far we're still at 'longish trail rides,' lol, though we did do 20 some odd miles a couple of weekends ago with no pain, soreness, or trouble on either of our parts. Breaking into it s l o w l y.

Miss Emma's new tack set...

Tat 3yo arab is a couple years out for endurance work. Just start working him slow and steady. Get some miles on him build up his muscular system. Connecting tissues take the longest to strengthen. Horses need to be 4, 5 or 6 depending on sport and event.

Love all your guyses horses!

Phantom where can I find that bridle and hackamore? I know I have seen them sometime before but I love track, do you like it?

Also is the halter tying in the bridle as the throat latch (like you did) standard practice? I have been trying to figure out how to manage a rope halter and bridle on the trail and that just seems perfect! Totally going to set mine up like this on our next ride!

TWH all the way,

Can't argue with that. I don't have one now, but our TWH stallion I trained back in the mid 70's at 16.2 he was the tallest the smoothest riding horse we owned. Couldn't work cattle very welll, but a great ride.

Thyme if you look at mine or phantoms headstall you see those shiney knobs ? Those are snaps. The headstall snaps over a rope halter. Way better and less busy than the usual add a bit combo halters you see. Two snaps and whole headstall and bit come off leavign a rope halter for the vet check and trot outs. I get my tack from Mossrock endurance they are great. Good communication, let me make changes through email But there are several dealers that make that design.

Hey Joe-
Just hang a few red ornaments or a red bow on Miss Emma and you two will be all decked out for the Christmas parade.

(sorry, I couldn't resist)

I love the green tack on Miss Emma. I tried a different bit & bridle on my Paso Fino today & everything went fine.
