Hahaha Arabian equitation. I am so going to use that.
Do you ride an Arab?
Of course! :) Does your Arab have spazzy giraffe-neck whirl around the arena moments?
Nope, Lacey engages in other "fancy" maneuvers though! lol!
Does your Arab sometimes spook at nothing?
Sometimes it seems like that, BUT once I started being more aware myself, I found that she was actually spooking at things just not things I could readily see/hear. She's not very spooky as a general rule but she never spooks "at nothing". It often seems that way, but there's always something
How many stereotypes does your Arabian fit into?
The hot, "go-all-day", sassy, energetic ones... But there are also good stereotypes, like Arabians being great with kids and being trustworthy/reliable and being highly intelligent, that she also fits to a T.
How many stereotypes does your Arabian NOT fit into?
She's certainly not "crazy". She's a free spirit, sure, but there's always, without fail, a reason for any behavior she puts out, good or bad. She's game for anything and always ready.
Is your Arab brave and ready for adventure?
That's for sure. If something spooks her but is moving away from her, she WILL chase it down if she can. Scary things don't just run from Lacey, oh no. She's a really good horse. She has a few quirks that I could do without, but in the long run, she's a gem.
To add to the list of maneuvers, here's my favorite: "we were having so much fun running...why should we stop just because you want to, puny human?"
