I love Arabs! They are just so intelligent! My last horse was a Welsh Arab cross and I just loved him to pieces.

I think people are used to the near caricaturization of the breed!

I know my guy is thick, but he still looks arab to me. :)
He is gorgeous!

I love Arabians, and I always laugh when people come up and ask me about my horse, then comment that she's too short, or too stocky to be a "nice quality" Arabian. She's got an almost Quarter Horseish type hip, wide but short back, decent bone, a nice neck, and pretty head. She's very smart, though lazy. She's 5, almost 6, and very very green, but only has an engine when I don't want her to have one lol. She will still try to randomly stop, and you have to get after her to get her going again. Once she feels you out, she stops stopping so much, but you can smack her with a crop, and she just looks at you like you are crazy. On the ground, she blows and snorts, and acts like a drama queen though she doesn't do anything, but as soon as you get on her in the arena, she falls asleep. She doesn't run like a bunny though, she runs more like a Thoroughbred. Stretches out as much as possible, and just skims over the ground in the arena. I love her heart, she tries so hard to do what I want, and to please me, and she's an absolute love.

My oldest daughter riding our 15.3 Arabian mare...who says Arabians are small?! But I'll admit, some of the Arabians I see in magazine pictures look a bit scary...

Yay a thread with all positive comments about arabs! Makes me so happy!
I love arabs so much, my first horse is an off the track arab. She's awesome, I really bonded with her. Before no one wanted to ride her because they all thought she was crazy, but my sister encouraged me to lease her and get through my own fear of riding her and after 2 weeks I fell in love with her and had to buy her. Now a year later I would do anything for her, we have such a bond, I ride her bareback everywhere with just a halter and a lead rope she is such a good girl. People say that their hotheaded and impaitient but they just need to have the right owner to bring out their true colors!
Im in the process of getting my second arabian who is polish! Im so excited!
Thanks everyone for all the replys!
This is us at are first endurance race, unfortuantely we got pulled for a minor leg injury but we kicked ass at our 2nd one!

I love this thread. It's so nice to see so many positive comments about Arabs. I've grown up riding Arabs and half Arabs. I wouldn't give up my boy for anything. He's super sweet, intelligent, and full of character and charisma. People are drawn to him when I have him out. He is fairly typey, but he's straight Egyptian so I expect that. He's not "hot" or unmanageable or crazy like people think. He's smart, curious, and full of life. Definitely my favorite breed.
