[RC] Endurance Riding w/QH/Pinto - Ridecamp Guest

Please Reply to: Ginger Podojil05@xxxxxxx or ridecamp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hello everybody.  I am just now learning about endurance riding and am very 
interested in learning more.  I am somewhat of a novice horse owner, only 
having my horses for about 3.5 years.  I have pretty much been limited to 
riding on trails, preferably in small groups. I remember when I first heard of 
endurance riding (a few years ago)... my first reaction was NO WAY ! But now... 
this is sounding more and more like something I could really enjoy.  It would 
be great if I could find something that my horse and I can work together on, 
and build our relationship on.  My main question is... I have a registered 
Pinto (stock QH type).  By reading the posts here, it seems that most endurance 
horses are arabians.  What type of qualities would a stock/QH type horse need 
to possess to be able to succeed and enjoy in this type of riding?  My Pinto is 
somewhat lazy... but I really have never challenged her.  She's young... only 4
