I used my walker for Competitive Trail Riding :) He could do about 35 miles in a day at an average of 3.5-4 mph. He was in great shape when we were doing that. Now we just trail ride for pleasure because my mother's horse has to slowly condition over the next few years. She's still too young to push for more than a couple miles.

P.S. The horse in my avatar is the one I did CTRs on :)

I just trail ride with my two Walkers... my 15 year old mare can go all day, all night, and the next day... but my three year old gelding get's tired after a long day of riding, so our longest rides right now are usually between ten and fifteen miles, though sometimes a little longer.

I'm planning on teaching my gelding the barrel pattern and possibly a little bit of jumping 'just for fun'.

I trail ride :)

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

My friend uses her Walkers for mainly trail riding...they are used to going up to thirty miles in a day and still having energy when they come home. Her one gelding is twenty years old and is still going strong lol
