I've worked with all different breeds over the years. When I got my first horse, he was not advanced enough for me so we sold him and I got another. (which was an Arab). I have never looked back. After working with all different breeds, I do have to say I will stick with my Arabs. Although, I do like certain stock horses and have friend that have stock horses or TBs, and another with Saddelbreds. A good horse is a good horse. I have to say I've had very good luck with having a lot of good horses in my pasture. I love the brains, the looks, the willingness, the intelligence of an Arab. For me they are easy to work with and I don't have to teach them the same thing over and over like some other breeds I have worked with in the past. I'm lucky enough to have 8 Arabs currently and hope to show my stallion at some Arabian Class A shows this year.

As for the extremely dished face, it looks alien to me. Normal dished with the flared nostrils, arched neck and the way they carry their tail make them the most beautiful horses I've ever seen. But I hate it when their face is way too dished. Freaks me out.

Arabs aren't my cup of tea. There are some cases where I will break down and drool over them, but not many. Give me a nice big chunky horse any day. I won't bitch about them though, because I understand that every horse has its benefits. Me complaining about Arabs is no better than the way people treat Standardbreds, which I hate.

My mother can't understand it though, she absolutely adores Arabs and dislikes anything chunky.

I've ridden Arabs twice - the first was okay, but a little nerve wracking. She was a sweet little mare, but had no idea how to stand still. I was very much a beginner rider, and it really didn't work well. The second destroyed them for me. She was beautiful and all, but she left a lot to desire in the personality stakes.

Actually no, three times. An endurance rider let me have a bareback ride on her Arab a few years ago. The mare was delightful, but it turned me off bareback riding for a while - she was so narrow, and just OUCH.

I'm not completely turned off of them though, because I do want to try endurance riding at some point, and it's definitely easier to find and endurance trained Arab than anything else...

People mistakenly assume Arabians are ultra-dainty and have no substance. Actually many Arabians have quite a lot of substance.... here is a gelding I used to own, he was a purebred, half Polish half Crabbet...

My Arab is the opposite of dainty and narrow... he is a wide ol' hunkin thing! A friend compares barebacking him to trying to sit on a barrel. But then her horse is a verrrry narrow paint!

My mother would kill for him! She's always wanted a chestnut with 4 stockings and a blaze. I'll admit he's nice, but I wouldn't go out of my way for him.

I think its ridiculous to hate a breed or a color. You can have breeds or colors you prefer over others , but to hate is pre judiced, and in my honest opinion an indicator of a lack of intelligence.
