    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.

    I used to be one of those people who hated on Arabians because of their rep. Then I bought one, and all of that obviously changed. She's the best horse anyone could ask for!

    I see it all the time, but to be honest, it depends on the horse and the training.
    I have a 27 year old mare that's been showing in Arizona, Washignton, New York... Literally, this mare has been everywhere and seen everything. She is the spookiest horse I own. LOL

    I have a five year old that's never been off my property (well, tell a lie, she just left to my sister's for a year, but that's it) and you couldn't spook that mare if you took a rifle and fired it over her head. But she's always been that way, and I imagine she probably always will be.

    You get some spooky, some flightly, some good, some bad in all breeds - Arabs just tend to have the worst rep for it.

    Unfortunately Arabians are "made" spooky by the crazy Arabian horse trainers out here today, well, most of the trainers anyway. Arabians are the calmest and kindest horses you will ever meet.... if not, then the horse was most likely mishandled or not properly trained.
