Endurance is a long-distance sport covering variations in altitude, terrain, and weather that tests the fitness and stamina of the horse as well as the athlete’s discipline and horsemanship skills. Periodic checkpoints occur throughout the competition to ensure the health and fitness of the horse and athlete. Given their ability to meet and master physical challenges, it’s no surprise that Arabian horses and their close kin dominate in this discipline. Many other breeds can also make great endurance partners, such as Paso Finos, Morgans, Connemaras, and American Saddlebreds!
