Thanks for your post deserthorsewoman! I love my Arab's head - the refined look, the large eyes, the large airways and floating nostrils, the tippy ears, the wedge shape, everything.
I don't like heads on most other riding type breeds. I think they are clunky, plain, and generally just uninteresting. That's my opinion. Not everyone likes the unique Arabian shape (head and body) and that's fine.
As far as the extreme dishes, there are some instances of health being negatively impacted at high exertion. That's only with the very extreme cases as far as I've seen. I've never seen anything for the most extreme cases having every day breathing problems, but it may be possible. That being said, it's so very rare. I imagine it's much easier to find a horse positive for HERDA.
