That's awesome, a lot of TB people I know hate arabs. I can relate to TBs because they are sensitive and loyal just like the arab, and they also have a false negative reputation! I think Anlgo arabs are just about the perfect horse!

I bet it is an Ace thing :) I think all arabs have their little quirks though, Lol. When I kiss Vinnie on the muzzle he'll always "push" at me with his nose. :)

Golden Horse, my Arab mare does the same thing lol She's VERY vocal & likes to "talk" to you. Always making little muttering sounds like you said, especially if you have goodies!
If i walk away & then turn around to look at her she whinnies at me as if to say "hey! You forgot me! I'm over here" lol. SO much personality.

[QUOTE]4) When they're excited they canter like a bunny rabbit hopping. So funny!

5) A dozen different ways to spook. Keeps me on my toes.

6) Never having to work to keep my horse moving forward when I ride.[/QUOTE

Haha too true! I love arabs for pretty much the same reasons as everybody else. They are so beautiful and when you win their trust they are so loyal! I love thoroughbreds as well, but arabs are really my fav.

Though they are awesome to look at when they are excited and jumping like bunnies because they want to canter, I am a scary cat rider with not much experience, so I rather watch then ride one that is in that mood. I rode my barns arab once, loved her. You barely touched her and she moved. Second time... well she was a in a spooky mood and was being a bunny alright. I was so scared i would get thrown off. :P

I truly love them, but basically when I get one I am going to look for a nice calm one who doesn't spook too too often. ;)

A ride a day keeps the worries away!

My horse makes a weird muttering noise too! I think it's hilarious. He also has a really deep voice.

Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson

I lease an Arab and from the very first ride I totally clicked with him! He can be a bit spooky at times, but his personality is so awesome that it over-rides that. He's got tons of energy and a huge heart...and he's super handsome too :) His owner is trying to sell him so I'm going to be very sad if he leaves.
