So happy to see you got her home-she is a beauty! Sounds like she'll be great for what you want to do. Can't wait to follow her progress.

Congrats on your new mare! I saw her on ABN's Rescue forum and was hoping she'd find a great home! :)

LOVE her pedigree. I'm a big fan of Spanish Arabians, and CMK/Crabbet breeding (can't wait to get my new boy home!!). Lots of substance and personaility!

As per manes, I agree with Dreamcatcher - Vetrolin is my saviour! It's taken out some nasty knots and kept the mane all in one piece. It does great on my man's mane - which I intend to braid this weekend because it IS a lot of maintainence!

Congrats on your new arabian. My boy Rocky (pictured in avatar) was a Polish bred arabian and he was small as well. I really like the smaller, more compact arabians. They really can do anything you set them to.
Just a couple of tips. Arabians are extremely smart. Once you gain her trust, you'll have a steady partner for life. Lol, but never underestimate those smarts. She will probably test you. But that's what I love about the breed! I'm sure she'll do fantastic at whatever you want to do with her

I got her from a preformance place she was being boarded there to get rehomed her owners are a lawyer and something else (nice people) they have had her since she was born but they travel alot and have about 15 other arabians they have bred, so even though she is 8 she has never been broke. This will be my 3rd horse to train and is supposed to be my first solo :) (but I do have a trainer that can help with her if needed)
We have a lot to work on, like touching her lol, she is very touchy in the back, and just about had a heart attack when I was getting this blanket on her but she is really smart and settles in to things really fast.
Well here she is!
She looks kinda of big in this picture but she is about 14hh I think (measure on friday when I get the stick thing). Right off the trailer after a 4hr 15 min ride, she was a champ the whole time!


I am 5'4" with my boots on does she look like she is 14hh?

Scratches

Im going to run back to the barn!

No I guess Ill stay with you guys.


Fable <3 finally getting a friend


What kind of arabian do you think she is?
Also how much do you think she weighs? I am 5'2" 110lbs-115lbs and I am hoping I will be able to trail ride and jump with her. I know arabians are built strong and I am not going to kill her when I start to ride her but I want to double check if she is big enough for me to jump.
Thanks!
<3
Sidenote: I did get her a new halter to the ugly grey-green one came with her and the rope halter was the smallest halter I had, I picked her up a nice maroon one yesterday :)

I love your Arab she is stunning
Good luck with her

For reference, here is an approximately 14hh Arabian jumping with a rider about your same height (she is 5'4" I think). This picture is from many years ago, my big sister and her sweetheartted spitfire arabian. She did everything with her mare, western, english, jumping, games (she beat a large class of competitive gamers at poles about the time period of this photo -the other competitors thought that the little girl was an experienced gaming pony), and she would do anything asked of her.

She is now 27 years old and is too stubborn to slow down (chomps at the bit because she loves to go and my sister won't let her).


The great thing about light greys is that it is nearly impossible to find a color that doesn't look good on them

Have fun, and hope she is a joy to train
