there are quite a few other good threads about arabs on here. Honestly, If a dead headed qh fits you perfectly, and you love being able to day dream as you mosey along on your push button mount, an arab will likely not be for you.
They are typically sensitive, forward, and question everything you do. You have to ask and sugest, bullying is not an option.
A bad one can be stupid, unbeleivably spooky and unpredictable(beware certain halter bloodlines),
A good one is brave, intelligent, loyal, quick and enduring. Nothing better.
Honestly, my mare is my heart horse, and there is no horse I would rather be on in a tricky situation. She is athletic and surefooted, more than once she has seen dangerous obstacles before I have. I can gallop through a trail on her with her being an absolute fire ball, asking for more speed the whole time, then right after I can put a kid on the front of my saddle and she instantly goes into baby sitter mode. She is priceless.
