I'm Buying My First Endurance Horse

As Bob said, you must 'relate' with the horse.  There must be a match in disposition, temperament, and nature between horse and rider, much as we chose other relationships.  A 'perfect' horse is of no use if you can't ride him.  If you are a reactive nervous rider you'll be happier with a calm laid back attitude horse who takes it all in stride and doesn't get easily ruffled.  Put a nervous rider on a nervous  horse, add the intensity of excitement that runs thru ride camp just about time for the race to start, and you have a disaster waiting to happen or at best a miserable ride coming up.
