RE: [RC] question re: appropriate breed of horse for newbie with various interests - heidi

Hey all,
  I have a newbie question.  :)
  For various reasons, I am looking into an Andalusian cross; either an Arab 
cross or a Tb cross.
  However I am interested in getting started in endurance as well (as well as 
dressage and driving and hence the interst in the Andalusian cross)
  So, my question is, is this type of cross "okay"...  I'm not looking to set 
the world on fire.  Just to get out there, have a good time and hopefully 
finish.  Ya know, newbiie goals. :)

Well, despite the fact that Arabs and Arab crosses predominate, there is no 
such thing as an "inappropriate" breed for this sport.  I've seen Andalusians 
on the trail, and Lipizzans on the trail, and crosses of same on the trail, 
doing just fine.  Pick a good one, and go for it!
