Quarter Horses as Endurance Horses?
For obvious reasons, Arabs excel at endurance racing, but why is it that quarter horses don't have as good a rap sheet, besides the potential lack of stamina compared to Arabians? I've been told that they over heat more often compared to Arabians due to the higher muscle mass but I've heard no other good reasons. Also, has anyone ever known a high level QH endurance racer? I used to ride a 50 miler but I've never seen one do 75's or 100's. Any input welcome.
