[RC] endurance horse/rider sizes - Spottedracer

I'm not going to say how tall I am (MUCH shorter than yourself!) nor exactly 
how much I weigh... lets just say, that in a bareback 'saddle' - I'm in the 
lightweight division currently (160+lbs but always trying to lose lbs!!!)

My proven mounts: completed 50's on a: 14hh 750lb mare, and a 14.2hh 950lb 
mare.. Best mount so far (for speed and recoveries) is a young 14.3hh 900lb 
mare....  I've also got a 13hh 650lb mare - whom I've YET to manage to wear out 
in training (carrying my weight).. Though my young daughter (60lbs) is the one 
who gets to ride her in competition...

BTW - my most established competition mount (the 14.2hh mare) is the only horse 
with the endurance, short coupling and strength to carry my tall husband 
(340lbs with saddle) up and down the bluffs on our farm trails.. Until, we 
produce a gaited mule for him that is.. (outt've a 14hh Fino mare)...

- LP - the shorter the horse - the BETTER!!!!
