Re: [RC] Endurance horse/rider sizes - Chrystal Woodhouse

I'm around 180 lbs with all my tack ( my treeless saddle is AT least 50 lbs of that weight ;-)) and my horse that I have rode for the last 5 years in long distance is a 14,2 Morgan, I do work really hard at riding well and balanced ( at least until I get tired, then all bets are off :-)) & have had no major issues with her.

Re: [RC]   Endurance horse/rider sizes

My husband rode my favorite horse once in a 50-miler and placed second by
only a squeak.  Courage was 14.2, weighed 780#, and my husband was 5'10",
weighing about 170#.  He rode an English saddle, which kept the weight down,
but still...he must have tacked up at about 185-190#.  Small horses do not
necessarily translate to not being able to carry weight.
