Question Do you like this Egyptian Arabian? pics

Here is an Egyptian arabian that is for sale...
8 year old, 15hh, arab gelding that is beginner safe and good with cows,other horses, traffic.etc. Been ridden through town too.

She needs him gone really quick because she has another horse coming.
Only asking $800 OBO

HERE is my question: Are Arabians good family horses? I've heard they are a handful. Is this true?

Comments on the horse? I wasn't going to go look at him til Sunday but now I think I better go sooner, or he'll be gone. He's quite a drive from me though.

Never buy a horse "really quick".... also I think youd be best served by finding an experienced horseperson to help you shop. A 2000 horse suited to you is alot cheaper than a free one that isnt, then you are stuck caring for something that isnt suitable for you.
Horse may or may not be perfect for you , but I think you may need outside help to figure that out.

I don't buy horses "really quick".... I just LOOK "really quick"
And I am experienced when it comes to finding a good and safe horse... but I have NEVER had anything to do with an arabian though.

I have a purebred arabian and I couldn't say enough good things about her! She's very athletic and still has a great mind ! Arabians are SO misunderstood, typically the people giving the judgments have never owned one. They are known to bond with there owner on a much deeper level then any other breed of horse, which I can completely agree with! But they do like to be treated with respect (i think this is why most people think they are "hot headed" or "crazy". They are probably just not being riden or worked with in a respectful way) I think arabians would make excellent family horses, because if you treat them with respect they will give you there everything. Ps. Along with owning an arabian, I am around them at my coaches barn ALL the time and they have about 6 arabians and they are all wonderful!

I've found that Arabians, or really any hot-blooded breed (denotes breed origin, not level of sanity), are typically only considered crazy, high-strung, or a handful by people who aren't confident or smart enough to handle them. Sure, there are exceptions. I grew up surrounded by them for the past 16 years and my daughter had grown up around them (8 years old now). There's no reason a good horse can't be a good family horse regardless of breed.

Horsecrazy, what are you looking for? If you want something in particular I may be able to help, know a few people in this area (Fargo/Moorhead) with good horses. What part of nd are you at? Buxton is only an hour from me.

Well, I've got 3 arabians, so I am biased about them.
Friendly nature, always happy to have attention (training, disguises, name it) and very easy to train.
Very expressive of their feelings, they will give their opinions and react to harsh-unfair treatment. So that's my general view of arabians, fun and great all-around horses.

But, that one you're looking at doesn't appeal to me. The way they "push" the sale sounds fishy. If you love your horse, you're not in a hurry to let it go just to anyone. Saddle looks too long, picture of horse ridden: he looks annoyed and the one resting, the horse looks dead, spirit-broken. Arabians should look happy, awake, lively. That one, not so sure.

In any case, a vet check should be done. As was said before, an unsuitable free horse can become fast become an emotional/financial burden.

She appears to be looking for opinions on this particular horse she is going to look at ...............
