are most arabians a lot thinner than him he seems a big "fat" for an arab,
altho he eats everything thats why he is a bit fat lol,
i have also been told that arabs don't jump as good as other horses, sam jumps better than some of the other horses at the pony club i go to, altho he looks at me for confidents and if im not ready for the jump he isnt,

My arab is the same. Always fat as butter, I don't think i've ever seen him thin, and we're constantly in drought. He is also a super jumper, and liek your boy, relies a lot on his riders confidence. If the rider has confidence, he'll jump anything you point him at, from any spot, and still go clear.

Arabs can be very good jumpers, they're just not as commonly seen.

The horse I learned to ride on was a pure arab (not sure which line of arab) and he was a FATTY! Real butter ball. So, even though they are stereotypically more slender horses, that doesn't mean there aren't those that like to over indulge themselves

Wow i didn't know alot of people first learned to ride on an arab. I did too his name was prince and he was awesome!

Anyways he definitly has the Arab ears and cheek bones. But his eyes aren't as round as most arabs. But he is gorgeous.

No, Arabs are not a "thin" breed....they usually have a good chest and nice-sized barrel on them. Here are the two Arabians I had (both have passed away)... They are usually very easy keepers.
