Lies, all lies! Ayrabs can't do that! They's all spooky and hyper!

She really is quite the lovely mare, equiniphile. I do feel for you with her being gray, though. Got one myself. He's the piggiest horse I own!

Thank you, Speed! She's turning out to be a really nice "teacher pony" for the little girls. Thankfully, she doesn't roll out in the pasture. She stays pretty clean year-round.

Of course, she'll turn into a muddy pig when I show up at 6:00 am tomorrow to get her ready for our clinic

I shocked the UK hunting world when I took on an arabian and got a lot of flack for doing it. He was a great little horse and no more spooky or high strung than anything else
The arabian society in GB has done a lot in the past 30 years to improve the breed and turn them into a respected riding horse

Yes, because you said she WON'T roll. You just cursed yourself!

Casper is the first and hopefully only gray I've ever owned. I tell people the reason he rolls in the mud so much is because he knows I prefer bays and chestnuts, so is trying to pass himself off as one!

I do tend to like the dirt colored horses much better. Easier to clean!

The biggest problem with people who don't understand and have these stereotypes against the Arabian, is that it's a lot easier for them to control an animal when you're smarter then it.

Green Broke
I have been mocked by the president of the compeditive trail assosiation for riding a thoroughbred.

Honestly, breed prejudgice is common. You do endurance on a ottb, you get criticized. Chase cows on an arab, get mocked. I get laughed at all the time for riding my "tiny" arab.

Just remember, not everyone is talented enough to ride an arab Ignore them, then go out and kick their butts. No faster way to shut them up

My daughter's first hunter pony was a Welsh/Arab cross. Once had a trainer suggest we block his dock to make him look less Arab. Long story, short, we let the horse do the talking. Put my 10 y/o daughter in the Green Hunter open (against her trainer's chestnut thoroughbred - trainer riding). She had the only Arab and only pony. Yes...she not only beat him, she took the championship. A good horse is a good horse regardless of the breed.

arab, arabian, arabians, arabs, breeds
