    I have a two year old arab with pinto, other than being young and crazy sometimes I love her to death and she is a very quick learner, she has shown my gelding a thing or two.

    I love 'em! I've owned a couple half Arabians, and I had two wonderful purebred Arabians....I'll post some pics of the purebreds here.... The grey was a gelding I used to own, he was an *Exelsjor son and so fun to ride (that is a friend of mine riding him in the pic), he was totally bombproof. And the chestnut was a mare I owned for 22 years (both have since passed away), she was a *Hal Gazal granddaughter....both were a Crabbet/Polish cross. My mare was also very calm and sweet and gentle too, and a blast to ride. I sure miss them.

    I have owned a 1/2 Arabian, Appaloosa for 14 years and she is my once in a lifetime horse. She is the most fantastic thing I've ever ridden. We've done everything it feels like and she never gives up. When I got her she was doing jumpers and I changed her to western, then endurance. . We trained and did endurance for 2 years in college then due to continued injuries switched to barrel racing and she excelled in that too!! Now that she is 20 we are slowly working on getting back into trail shape and plan on doing the saddle log program starting next January. It's not anything big but it gives us something to do.

    I will forever look for a horse like Sterling once she is gone and I guarantee I will own another Arabian cross in my life!! I have a mare out of her that is going to be great but she isn't her Mother. . At least not yet! She's got big horse shoes to fill!!

    I'll be completely honest here, Arabs use to be my "least" favorite horse. But when it came time to buy a horse of my own instead of leasing just before I finished high school, guess what I walked away with. Yep you got it an Arab. Rakziha had me at hello, and I didn't even want to go look at him just becaue he was an Arab. The ONLY reason I went to look at him was because he was a friend of a friends horse & I would of felt awful if I would of completely blew her off. I got him at the age of 20 and 6 years later he still does everything he did then & then some. I agree they are a very strudy breed. I'd have to admit~its still not my favorite of all time breeds but Rakziha has defiently earned the respect that I didnt' give Arabs before. He sure changed my mind!



    This was this past winter!! Silly fence was in the way... but you get the picture!

    I have two purebred Arabs, two Arab/Appaloosa crosses and two Arab/Quarter Horse crosses. Though I'll tell you till I'm blue in the face I am not fond of Arabs clearly they're fond of me! I keep landing up with them. My only non Arab is my POA.

    I did it all with my Arab/Arab crosses. Dressage, Hunters, Jumpers, Cross Country, mild and extreme trail riding, games, barrel racing, cattle penning ect. I find that they will do just about anything if you ask them nicely.

    I have a 22 yr old Arab/Saddlebred who has done it all and I use him for trail he's great still thinks he's 10 sometimes though.
    Then I have an arab/pinto gelding 9 yrs old that my 8yr old granddaughter started doing games with this year and he's sooo good to her, I thought he'd be too feisty but he rocks.
    I also have his full sister, who is a wild child and couldn't be broke (at least not to my liking) but she's wonderful on the ground and has great manners so she's our pasture pal. Here's Nikko (the old one) and Knight (the gamer)

    What got me started with arabs -tbs*COUGH* as seen in most shots of this show was the Black.

    Tho not my favorite, they are gorgeous animals:) (and yes if I ever came across a true black arabian...I would likely buy it)

    I love Arabians (and Arabian crosses) for their cheerful, forgiving nature, outstanding endurance and athletic ability, excellent work ethic, amazing versatility, and unbeatable temperament. They are easily one of the most people-oriented breeds I have come across.


    I have an Arab mare; she is possibly the most intelligent, gentle, loveable goof I have ever met (horse wise :P). She has the most outstanding temperament- being both incredibly down to earth and extremely patient with an unflagging spirit that shines through her soft-as-cloud eyes and people-pleasing disposition. She can be rather cheeky though; she's a TOTAL tease and loves to go prancing around in front of anyone and everyone who will watch (shes a total attention *****).

    She's also incredibly versatile. She has quite the jump on her, has the movement for dressage (though we've never tried it...yet), the patience, and strive to please for totting around little kids, and the heart and stamina for long distance. She would be quite the little show mare if I had the time and money to trailer her to all of the off-island shows. She would also be great at Western Pleasure.

    Yeah..... I'm kind of obsessed with Arabs, if you couldn't tell
