ARABS are the best! :) I have three arabs, one anglo arab mare who is my old girl who is semi retired and gets a good hack out at least once a week, she is only ridden by myself and hubby as everyone else is scared of her, she's a good actor. I love her...faults and all. Hee hee and her name is Sweetie. Peaches is an Arab cross something and man has she got spunk! You point her at the hill and the path she chooses is straight up the middle, not for the faint hearted...needless to say she is ridden by hubby most of time.... Fidget a full Arab and 7 years old and a real honey!!! My children ride her as well as myself and she is coming along very nicely, I like her the best at the moment because she reads your mind...if your nervous she's nervous if your confident she's confident! I think that this trait is a fact with Arabs, they emulate how you are feeling..YOU CAN"T PRETEND! I love the energy you get from riding an Arab!
