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.

I have an Appy x Arab and a registed Half Arab.
I love them both to death. Just trail ride with them though. My Appy x Arab is too old to be showing and our Half Arabs just too nutty. lol.

The world is best viewed through the ears of a horse.

I own a Fresian x Arab.
And he is amazingggggggggggggggg at Dressage.

I dreamed about him, being something untouchable to me, untamable, and wild.

I have a pinto half arab who I got a year ago when my previous mare died. She has been a dream to work with. Super smart and willing to please not to mention beautiful.

Stella - sweet, timid, elegant, lovely, lively, amazing
Luna - large, unattractive, naughty, adored

I've got one gelding that I'm hoping to show Western Pleasure next year, and then he'll be going in for cutting training.
Another mare I want to start in cutting also, as well as reining.
My Khoda stud I'm hoping will be a reiner. We might have some fun and play around with Western Pleasure and see how that goes.
Another mare and my Justice stallion I'd like to show halter next year.
And, of course, trail riding just goes in the with mixture.
I'm hoping to get my Blue boy up the mountains sometime! :)

Actually, I think my favorite cross with an Arab is an Icelandic. Beauty, brains, and an unbeatable trot.

I've ridden and shown arabs and half arabs for a about 12 years. I love them. The only thing i have not had a chance to do on them is the driving and working cow classes. But one of my half arabs is broke to drive so maybe one day i'll get to do it.

Soft Hands....Strong Legs....Steady Mind....RIDE....
