Do you think the Spanish lines were bred more towards being a good bridle horse? (its on my bucket list to vacation in Spain and ride a bridle horse!)

Good, all around Arabians were and still are bred for performance regardless of the country in which they're bred, so I'm thinking you should be able to find a ton of great riding Arabs in Spain.

They were originally bred to resemble the Andalusian( a matter of taste of course), so I'm pretty sure you can find them, trained Spanish vaquero style.

Yeah, I really value in any breed a horse that's bred to be useful.....eye candy and arm candy doesn't cut it! Lol!

Exactly! I want a useful horse as well as a useful SO! Pretty is nice, but unless it's backed up with usefulness, no thank you.

This here is *Erros (El Paso x Eskapada). You can see the width of chest, big girth, incredible hip on this guy - this is Polish at some of it's finest.

I remember seeing so many of the famous stallions at the Arabian Nationals back in the day. If you think their pictures are impressive, you should have seen them live!

Muscat made quite the impression, and Khemo was just simply drop dead gorgeous. Both useful stallions, as they went on to win performance classes as well as halter championships. Le sigh.....

Thankyou!! If I had my pick, Erros would be for me. Solid looking animal for sure! All lovely though!

The arabian I had was a grandson of Grojec and he didnt have a particularly dished face at all and like his ancestor was quite stockily built and very versatile - no spindly thing that looked like his legs would break on the first bit of rough ground
You can find old pics of arabians on sites like All Breeds Pedigree and its interesting to see that the further back you go the more functional the horse looks. They had to carry a man across rough inhospitable terrain so needed to have a lot of power and stamina.
Sand is surprisingly really hard on hooves so I would think that the horses with the hardest hooves survived better and were more prized.
