Wondering what the odds are. My gelding is turning 16 now, he was ridden often but mostly just walking around with a saddle and a 7year old, maybe ridden by the kids parents here and there. He is a really bulldog shape his wither is just hardly 15 hands, his butt is 15.1 hands and he's probably 1350-1400lbs with a looooong back. Me+saddle is 150 lbs Almost needed to beat him into taking a step when I got him, slowly worked at it and now he loves to w/t/c/g and he's willling to move and doesn't try and stop now. He just goes. Just rode 15 miles today with him 2 mile warm up w/t/c up and down a steep hill a few times, did circles and down a trail. 10 miles solid trotting with only a few stops. Gravel roads, long slow hills, few big lumps of dirt, fields 3 mile cool down After the 10 miles he was a bit sweaty, but he wasn't gasping for air. He was just normal maybe a extra breath. It took us 1 hour. Cooled down after 1 mile but needed the extra 2 so we did some walking and trotting. What are the odds he would be able to compete in a 25 mile endurance race in 6 months without being disqualified or dying? It really enjoys keeping a trot and adventuring.
