What's your ride??
 
Arabians might be the most popular horse for competing in endurance, but ANY horses can be used! What do you ride and why?

I ride a full-blood Arabian gelding (7 years old). I originally had a 2-year-old AQHA colt and decided I wanted a second horse I could already ride, and i discovered endurance riding during my search for a horse. I was already interested in Arabs for their personality and (of course) beauty, so why not get an Arab if I'm planning on doing endurance?? I absolutely love my boy Snickers and can't wait to start competing!

I ride an eight year old purebred Arabian mare.
I am an endurance rider wanna be. The horse is able.
My body is not...........

I've never ridden a gaited horse - It is on my to-do list. I hope it doesn't spoil riding my Arab and QH!

I've used mostly morgans...but my horse is 1/2 arabian, 1/2 QH! In general I love the morgans for it....

Dream is a 12 year old purebred arab.

We just started our 6th AERC season together.

My 17 year old Half Arab, Half Quarter Horse mare and I will be competing in our first CTR next weekend, and will hopefully do well enough to go on to longer distances! She has spent most of her life as a hunter and western pleasure show horse, so it will be a big change, but one I think she'll really enjoy!

Great horses guys! Phantomhorse- just out of curiousity, what kind of MH is that (if it even is a MH)? It looks quite a bit 'nicer' than some of them that I've run into!
