I don't know specifically of any books on endurance lines but what =
I've been doing is taking all the high mileage horses from the NATRC =
and AERC publications and running their pedigrees. That combined with =
my own experience led me to CMK bloodlines and more particularly the =
Maynesboro horses as my starting place. I think that there are =
specific individuals of all bloodlines that are good but IMO the CMK =
horses overall (remember all generalizations are at lest somewhat =
inaccurate <g>) have more trail/endurance/dressage ability. Then =
again, I'm biased, I breed them. <smile>

What I did was look at the horses I liked over and over for years. =
Whenever I found a horse I liked I got it's pedigree. As I looked at =
those pedigrees I found that the same animals were showing up again =
and again in their background. I then started researching these =
ancestors and tracing them forward to find other living animals who =
were descended from the core group I liked. That study is what led me =
to the purchase of my foundation animals.

As far as books go there are hundreds. You really need to be more =
specific about what you are looking for. I am particularly interested =
in the Army horse from the late 1800's and in the Crabbet, Maynesboro =
& Kellogg animals that I have found I like. So my list of books below =
includes mostly materials about these bloodlines. A good bookseller =
of Arabian books is

I've bought a number of books from her including some rare ones that =
are most helpful in looking at breeding plans. The history of the =
army horses is where I've found some of the most useful pedigree =

Here are a few of the books I've found helpful in defining my own =
breeding program. They are in no particular order.
