    My 1/2 arab is 13.3, my purebred mare is 14 and 1/2 inch (not quite 14.1) and my purebred gelding is 15.3. I much prefer shorter horses, 13.3 is perfect for little 5' me ;) It's hard to get on my gelding! LOL

    Here are some pics I took of it back in May. The vet was not sure, he is just a country vet, not an equine vet. So.....
    We did not get his papers. The man showed them to us on our first visit...but would not give them to us when we went back to get him. He said he had misplaced them. I just wanted to get Jack out of there so I did not worry about it. It is obvious that he has had good training...but he ended up in the wrong hands (the man we bought him from). His ribs were showing, his hooves were cracked... one was real bad. He had not seen a farrier or had wormer since that man had gotten him 3 years before. He had the nerve to tell us that. Urrrr. We had just been looking for a trail horse when we stumbled onto him.

    Here are 3 pics of the mysterious knot/lump on his leg...







    Here is a picture of him that was taken about a month after we brought him home:


    And here is one we took back in September wit my oldest son

    I have a pure bred Straight Egyptian Arabian and she jumps like a dream. I think it all depends on the horse. Not the breed.

    Both of the Arabians I had have passed on (they were wonderful horses!), my gelding was 14.2hh and my mare was 14.3hh). There are some lines of Arabians that do get quite tall, Sharem El Sheikh comes to mind, and Eternety.

    My family had an arab mare who was 13.3hh. She was lovely with a flowing trot and a horrible bumpy short canter stride. She loved to go but was rather soft in the mouth so braking wasn't too much of a deal.

    I have an S.E. Arab gelding. He is about 15.2hh. His dam was the same size and his sire was 16hh.

    Yeah I work at a barn where the majority is arabian and saddlebreds. Alot of the pure arabians are pretty short ranging from 14hh to 15hh, but we have gotten a new stallion who is probably 16hh. I am not sure if this is correct or not, but I heard a rumor that arabian breeders are trying to breed taller horses but like I said I don't know if that's correct or not
