 Diane, your post was very well stated.  Let me 
add that one of the arguments that swayed me 
was that endurance was defined on the physiologic 
response of the horse AFTER 25-30 miles.  At this 
point is where ENDURANCE horses are created.  
 (Someone else can jump in here and explain this better than I can).

It's been my understanding that the distance that really separates out
horses' distance abilities is around 60 - 70 miles.  Which is why I
would prefer to see the definition of an endurance ride as 100
kilometers or more in one day (60 miles).
