Exactly, 66Domino. There are no 'best' breeds, and the most efficient way to silence the naysayers is just to ride your horse and show people what they can do.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Breed bashing is what divides the confident people (those who know they will never know it all) from the not-so-confident people (those who think they know it all and must prove it regularly even to complete strangers) and you will soon notice that only the not-so-confident people continue to play the game. Hang in there you will be fine. I owned horses for over two decades before I got my first Arab - and LOVE the breed. I am opposite than most people I know here where I am - I LOVE trying out new breeds and disciplines. You will have more friends and get one heck of an education in the process. Keep an open mind and stay friendly. Just remember ' what they don't know IS hurting them'

Ya' know what is so sad.....we all love horses. We all come from different backgrounds, all walks of life. The one animal that has brought so many of us together from all walks of life is....the horse. We need to put aside differences, and get back to the true meaning. Diversity can bring learning....The horse brings us together.

I hear it all the time. I have some Arab friends, and to be honest I LOVE them!

I just love the dished faces and long manes and tails. I could just die looking at them.

My friend has a Arab and she did showing, etc. Well she was told once by a judge that she thought her Arab, "sucked and is disgusting," and another time when she entered the ring the judge looked at her, crossed her arms and looked the other way. I saw it too, I was amazed.

Her Arab was great, nothing wrong with it and was very calm. Some people astonish me.

For the wretched of the earth there is a flame that never dies.
Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.

The bashing goes both ways:). I've had arab owners have a problem w/ me showing Odie hunter in hand. I've had dressage ppl tell me that an arab isn't built for dressage. Honestly the arab I owned was a few cans short of a 6 pack, but my mom's arab was a sweetheart.

Personally, I don't care for them but they aren't a bad breed.

I knew a few arab haters until they met mine. They were expecing him to be flighty but he was quite the opposite. They realized just what kind and gentle souls arabs are.
