Oh and if you don't own QH's then your a gaited person...so yea when I ride Bause at the trails and warn people she might kick (though she never has) and pull her off the trail for them to pass they always give me a wide birth....lol arabs have the reputation of being hot headed wild things around here.
Nice to see so many others enjoy the breed on here. If anyone is from tx and looking for a riding partner pm me!
See I wouldn't mind finding myself a nice arab. I think that most people think all Arabs are crazy, but the lesson barn I use to board with had 3 arab lesson horses that were completely kid and beginner safe. Unfortunately, all the arabs that I have encountered outside of there have been the stereo typical hot headed high spirited horses. The arab that is at the barn I am at now is really good in the arena but is really nervous on the trails or I would totally buy him for myself (but due to some bad accidents my confidence is still super low, even 3 months later).
I think people just lump the whole breed together as a bunch of crazy horses, when they really need to take it on a horse by horse basis.
