I have a couple arabs, most are just used in lessons,etc,but I have only had 2 arabians that were my personal horses.
Princess is a 13.2 Arabian. She brought me through countless short stirrup classes and taught me everything their is to know about hunters. She is not at all your typical arabian, although she definitely does look the part, she does not have the temperment or movement of an arab. I showed her hunters and equitation and now, as I have outgrown her, she is teaching a little 4 year old at our barn.
Belle was a 14.1 hand arabian pony. She was the horse that actually got me into hunters and brought me to many of my first rated shows and 4h shows. I showed her for about 2 and a half years, but due to colic she had to be put down after she had 3 colic surgeries over her lifetime.
