    Blue is Arabian. She's got her moments (like when there's moose in the area), but on the whole she's really calm and centered.

    When I went and got her after the moose and jumping the fence issue (read my journal for more on that), she came right up to me and walked all the way home w/o a problem.

    Actually she's slower walking and more calm than the AQH we babysitted for a while! LOL

    I'd have to agree that it's not all about the horse's breed but alot about the trainer and training involved.

    I remember an arab that I once rode. He wasn't weak and was just plain lazy
    Although I think it had something to do with getting away with being lazy when little kids rode him lol.

    I rode an Arabian today.... not my best experience...... I can say that he has endurance. After already been ridden HARD for an hour and a half he was still hyper........VERY hyper...... he was spooking at sparrows, rock roads, water puddles, snow piles, cows, gates, and highway traffic MILES AWAY!! He even decided at one point it would be a wonderful idea to take off bucking and do his own thing..... not an Arab fan

    Don't get me wrong I'm not condeming the entire breed because of him... I just haven't had a good experience w/ an Arabian yet..... another time a crazy, poorly trained Arabian ran full speed straight at my horse, my horse freaked started cow hopping and I fell of and got a concussion, but I was just a little kid.......

    I've also been ridding a arabian/saddlebred cross...... he's hyper, but not as hyper as the purebred....... I don't like him either.... when riding the Arabians the most used phrases are "Easy, boy, easy" and "You're ok"...... and the occasional "your an idiot that isn't scary"

    Sorry arabian fans

    First off Congrats on getting a new horse! Congrats on owning a black one, the ultimate best.

    I have always loved looking at arabs. The few arabs I have ridden on the flat were extremely comfortable and fun to ride but having said that I would not own one. I like my horses to be thick and heavier than your typical "average" horse.

    Make sure to post some photos soon of that little one. Do you have a name for him yet?
