Pure arabs seem to be the best at endurance but any horse can do it with the right training it just depends whether you want to be competitive or not!
Part arabs do really well competitivly and I know of some that are champions and compete internationally with much success!!!
Do you want to be competitive? Or just complete the ride successfully?
We have a saying in the endurance world: "To complete is to win!"
If you complete the ride with a happy and healthy horse you have already won even if you come last!!!
Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.
