Our daughter and son-in-law have ridden warmbloods in endurance for a number 
of years.  Butch rode a 17 hand, unconditioned Trakehner in a 30 mile LD ride 
several years ago and finished in 7th place.  They now own a 1/2 Dutch 
Warmblood, 16.1 hands, that has done several R&T races, one of which was a 
100 mile R&T (he placed first)!  My husband used to ride a 16 hand 
Morgan/Percheron cross that consistently top tenned 50 mile endurance rides 
and placed 4th in Tevis at the age of 12.  Who says BIG horses can't do
