For endurance I would agree to go with the arabian. However, their disposition is known to be...high strung if you will. For an easy-going endurance horse I would go with a quarab. Although they are part arabian I have read that they are more likely to take the disposition of the quarter horse which is, needless to say, excellent.

If you just want to do endurance to have fun, about any breed with enough conditioning can do it. I ride with Quarters, Walkers, Paints and about any cross you can name of. If you want to do endurance and be competitive, it is far easier on an Arab. They are just made for it. Arab crosses are great also. I rode a Quarter starting out and I didn't really enjoy getting a butt kicking everytime I rode. I wanted to do better, so I converted to an Arab. Now I love them. I have three, two full blooded and one cross. The full blooded mare is by far the best one. She is just made for endurance and she loves it.

In Finland we have plenty of small endurance riding competitions with 10-30 kilometres (1 mile=1,6 kilometres) and standardbreds are very popular in them.
Some endurance riders are mixing standardbreds with arabians here too, but I haven't heard of the results yet.
Professional endurance riders who are competing in longer distances uses arabs, wich is known to be the best breed for it in Europe too.

endurance

I ride a Nooitgedacht X Arab mare at my stables. She is forward going and would do brilliant in Endurance rides.

Nooitgedachts have a strong, lean build and can easily carry an 80-90kg rider for long distances without tiring. Pretty Amazing hey.

Also in Estonia standardbreds and russian trotters are becoming more poppular in endurance. My horse is 3/4 russian trotter 1/4 stb and I bought him for endurance. I also heard that the couple of over best rider are thinking about buying some arab and trotter crosses.
