There are a couple people at the barn where I board who do endurance races and apparently are very good at it. I'm interested in the sport, I think it sounds like a lot of fun, but of course my horse and I are far from competing, we would have a lot of conditioning to do first! But I mentioned being interested the other day to these people and got comments like "oh your horse is NOT an endurance horse!" (they own Arab crosses) Now, my horse is a Paint/QH but I was under the impression that any horse could compete in endurance as long as he/she is healthy and fit enough (and conditioned to ride that long)...I'm not imagining that I could win or anything, just participate, that's all!
Anyone do endurance races and what do you think about a Paint/QH being in an endurance race?
