And where I live (Midwest) there seems to be quite a few Connemaras. I know of three purebreds. They were used at a children's lesson and therapeutic barn. I'm sure there have both several others there too that could have been part breed. They seem to be a quite favored pony for lessons.
Believe me, nearly all Arabs behave like that at some stage no matter if they are stallions, gelding or mares. They always ride with their tales up and have a prancing gait. 'Chuckie' a gray Arab gelding(38yrs) boarded at our farm still runs around the field in that manner, just a little stiffer. A riding school near us use an Arab mare and she trots around the manege just like that too. Its more a breed trait than 'showing off'. They are great horses to watch.

I agree that all genders can, I was just pointing out that the one in the video was probably so wound up on energy, that's why he had so much energy. My horse will do that too if she gets full of energy. She just wasn't like that in the video I had. It was a long day for her, and she was obviously not wanting to listen, as well as feel happy and excited to prance around.

arabian being lunged #5 - YouTube

This is how I see most arabians on one of their less excited days. I've worked with some arabs, and they aren't always like the ones portrayed in the other two videos. They are stubborn, restless, and sensitive when they aren't on their great days. When they are having a great day, they will act like the ones in the other videos. Those could have also been trained a bit to do that on command.

The bay stallion IS trained for that. It's a libertyclass and the horse knows exactly what to do and when to stop. The elevated tail when moving is a breed trait. It's a hot climate breed, so anything what can be lifted to get rid of body heat will be lifted. When it's cold outside all horses clamp their tails down to keep bodyheat in. The typical prancing and dancing, snorting and blowing is to show off, to get attention, to play, to say, look at me. They know they're pretty doing that
And in my book, a stubborn Arabian is a misunderstood one. Heck, people get cranky when they're not understood.

It could just be me, but I thought I saw a slight dish shape to her face which would lead me to believe she is an Arab cross. The picture is a little blurred though, so it's tough to tell. Also, kudos to you for rescuing her!

Connemara?

She might be a Connemara cross because she has a pony face it looks like not very fine like an arab.

I think that we all need to remmber that the extreme dished head some modern arabians have is a new "invention". I ahve an Arabian mare that has a very straight profile. If she were a QH she would have a refined head. As an Arab hers is coarse. If you look at ehr straight on though you can see she is very much an arab.
Also about the spirit they have. I have a very n ice mare here that acts like a draft horse. she is quite lazy and laid back. Not flighty in the least. Shalom

Yes, she does have a slight dip in her head, but it's not like the extreme arab dishes you see today.

And thank you!
