Also all of the arabians I know are alot more horse to handle than the thoroughbreds I've ridden.
Thoroughbreds are ment to run and all, but with arabians (normaly) you need to alwyas give them a new task and keep them thinking, there often much spookier too.
Although that is there stereotype, and im sure there are alot of thorougbreds that are much hoter than an arabian and arabians that are super calm and easy going. Just going by my experience.
From what I've seen, Arabs are racing horses too. But yes, there are both hot and calm Tbs and Arabs. Personally, I love Arabs. They are spirited, but there's just something about them that are a little more attracting to me. Hee, my first horse was an arab, as well.
As far as spooky, it all depends on how the horse. One would think my warmblood is an arab because she can spook easier than my the horse that is arab.
