Re: [RC] big horses in endurance - Keith W. Kibler

I know squat about quarter horses as we use gaited twhs and mfts. However, we do have some big stock that has worked out nicely.
My better half Sandy on her 15.3 mft Lady at the ky horse park Pyramid event:

Our 16.1 twh gelding Rebel with a 15 year old jr on board, the jr is 6 foot tall:

All are different and have different sweet spots in their gaits in regards to their heart rates. We use gps watches and
heart rate monitors in training and in the aerc rides and plan each ride out according to the horse, temp., and humidity.
A big horse will work, but try and carefully manage what we are doing. Still learning all the time.
