Re: [RC] Question on Mounted Posse/Endurance - Truman Prevatt

I'm sure Jim Holland will chime in on this. Jim has been doing Search and Rescue for years on his endurance horses.

My question is: or I'm thinking more of a comment from another volunteer, who has been involved with the posse over 20 years. She said she doesn't know any endurance horse that has made a good posse horse, that they are too ready to go all the time. I'd like to think it really is just a matter of training, that your horse is either trained or he isn't. Since I'm starting with the posse training first, I figure he will have that down well before I get to conditioning for endurance. I have another arab who I think would also be a great posse horse, and I rode him in a 50 and did quite well with him. He's lazy for the most part, but during the race, lazy is not a word I would have described him. Anyway, I'd love to hear comments and/or experiences related to this.
