RE: Re: [endurance] Difference in Arabians

There are a few endurance riders with lots of mileage in my area
that really like Egyptian bloodlines.  Most any of the bloodlines,
Polish, Russian, Crabbet, Spanish, whatever - all have breeders
that are breeding for halter purposes and may have bred away from
the sporthorse ideal.  Maybe there is a reversal in that trend
because I see a lot more of the Arabian Sporthorse thing happening.
(Don't know.  Not a breeder!)
