    [RC] Multi-day Horses - Lauren Horn

    Is a larger bone, studier build horse better (stays sounder) then a light bone sleeker built horse for Multi-days??? My goal is to do  multi-days and have a horse that will stay sound for a long, high mileage career. I found a horse that I like but he is small boned (I haven't measured, but I would guess less then 7 1/2") and wears a 00 shoe. I'm a heavy middleweight rider and am concerned that I may have problems in the future. What are the statistics on high mileage multi-day horses? I need to make a decision quickly and this is a big concern.  Anyone riding a lighter boned high mileage multi-day horse? E-mail me privately if you want. Thanks for your opinions.
