My arab has never spooked at hardly anything. If he does he comes right back to me when I ask. We have this arab mare that will do every thing I ask when asked. No problems. When her mom comes over and rides her she can't get her to do much of anything. Then when I get back on, no problem. Her mom has ridden QH all of her life. So she thought, sure a arab. No problem. Well she learned, QH and Arabs are not the same thinkers.
