Hi all,

I got a new horse (yea), and need some clothes for her. My big mare uses a Big D blanket, and I like the fit of it. But, she weights 1100 pounds, and wears an 82. My new girl is a purebred arab. Could anyone please comment on what your thoughts are as far as brands of blankets for arab's?

Hi everyone!
I am new to endurance riding, but I am already addicted! Even bought a new truck so that I can get to rides w/o breaking down. I do not have an arabian, I know that physiologically they are best for competitive endurance. My mare is an Appaloosa, lots of classic breeding, mixed with lots of running quarter horse. I would love to hear from members who also ride non-arabians. Pictures to follow...

Oh, and thanks! He is VERY fun, and I happen to feel he is rather dapper as well... but I could be bias ;)

The vets here are great actually. Marco is horrible about going in between a gait and a trot when I trot him out, they just shrug their shoulders and he vets out all A's (aside from B-A- on gut sounds :/). Anna was riding a beefy mustang cross and he was uber mellow as well, he always got all A's. LMAO, recently Marco actually fell flat on his face right in front of Otis (vet) at the last trot out because he was winnying and not paying attention, he simply tripped over a pine tree root and face planted right in front of him! Seriously, he almost fell ON the vet! I was like, "I swear, he just wasn't paying attention"... he laughed and called him grace. He had already vetted out, and he saw what happened, so... all A's :) (although we were both rather embarrassed, and Marco was especially peppy after that to show that he was really cool ;). One of the vets, Bucky Bancroff, just had his quarter horse come in top ten at his first ride, I don't remember though, I think 3rd place, at Longstreet's Charge. So, obviously, they are aware it is about the conditioning here. Although I am sure some of the "elitist" folks were miffed that a reigning horse kicked their butts ;). Otis is convinced it is color that keeps some horses back in this region... his theory is that red horses generally have a harder time with the high heat and humidity. Dunno, but we are definitely more careful on those days... just in case ;)
