I ride RMH/KMSH so of course I would go with the Rocky,lol. But since they are both pretty even as far as experience goes I think you really just need to ride them and see which one you click with. I will say that if you've never ridden gaited, and especially if this mare needs a little tuning up on her gait, you should find someone to A)coach you with her or B) give you lessons on another solidly gaited horse so you know what you're looking for. Good Luck and keep us updated!

Oh! And if you do go with the mare she probably will NOT have a problem keeping up with your friends TBX, might be the other way around,lol

lol I am fine leaving her behind ;P

I always see a listing for a couple people that train you and your gaiting trail horses, they have a good reputation around my community I would definitely contact them

I also see TWH and Icelandic people everytime we ride so even though they are different breeds they could prob give me some tips?

Thanks again guess! Totally wasnt planning on getting a new trail horse

I ride english on trails, and I am looking into an english style endurance would this work? Or would I be looking for a specific trail saddle?

With the Rocky you won't be on the horse that's lagging behind.
