I've heard from two different places now that arabian stallions are an excellent horse. I've read that they don't get uppity the way other breeds of stallions do. Here's what I read about em in wikipedia, ("The result is that Arabians today have a temperament that, among other examples, makes them one of the few breeds for which the United States Equestrian Federation allows children to exhibit stallions in nearly all show ring classes, including those limited to riders under 18.")
Someone else said that they have a mild temperement and are not all high strung like other stallions would be.
I'm asking because I want an arabian. And right now there's an arab that's almost two and he's not going to be gelded. But I do have a gelding and was wondering if he would get along with my gelding too.
I'm sure most what I'm going to hear is that it depends on the horse itself. But is it true that arab stallions are worth having to ride? I wouldn't wanna geld the arab either because the owner want's to breed back to him. So I'm thinking I could work a deal with the owner. But my grandpa would have a fit if I told him I was getting a stallion. So I'm looking for people that have experience with arabian stallions and not just hearsay like my gpa.
Is it worth having an arab stallion? I plan on only trail riding in the mountains. And maybe if an endurance race or two shows up nearby I wouldn't mind giving that a go. But if there was a race I'm sure there would be mares too.
