Archie was Susie's first endurance horse. An unknown mix of Arab, Quarter horse and Apaloosa, he is very spotty and remains with us as a strong herd leader.

Although yellow logbook qualified, he did not demonstrate the heartrates or temperament of a long term endurance horse but his contribution to our early understandings of horsemanship haev earned him a permananet retirement to the farm.

His general technique is to go as fast as possible and he twice won the horse leg of the Collie Marathon, failing to beat the course record only as a result of having to wait for a train.
