Re: [RC] Arabians and/or Andalusians - Chris Paus

MHO is that Andies are gorgeous creatures, but being
more Baroque type horses, they are a bit heavy muscled
for distance riding.

however, I've seen someone compete on a Lippizzan.
I've seen someone compete on a TB/Clyde cross. One of
the best little horses I've seen in the midwest is a
QH/paso cross.. go figure!

You can compete on any kind of horse really. It's how
competitive you want to be and what your goals are. If
you just want to do the rides and get your t-shirts,
an Andie would work as well as any other horse. I
don't know if it would have the stamina and cooling
ability to be a top tenner, but I could be wrong...

Has anyone done endurance using an Andalusian?  I
know they are 
really-REEly expensive, but wondered about the
relationship and 
similarity between the two breeds and whether or not
they would 
conformationally or temperamentally be suited for
the sport, and their 
differences?
