Re: RC: Re: I'm Buying My First Endurance Horse

IMO the 2 most important traits for endurance horses are:
1. The desire to want to see what's just a little farther down the trail.
2. The willingness to eat & drink whenever, wherever, regardless of the 
craziness going on around.
Unfortunately, these traits can't be seen in advance!
