  Most of us ride the horse we have and structure our goals around the horse's ability.   In this case you will have to condition and give it a try, to determine your horse's ability to run endurance. Keep in mind that "success" is relative to one's personal goals.   Once person's success may be completing a ride each year, or to ride with a club, while another's may be to shoot for a regional mileage championship,  National or International goals.  The more involved the goal, the more consideration one might take in selection of their horse.
