His gaits are extremely rough, his conformation is horrible (even I with my limited conformation experience can see that) and he is one of the hardest to deal with horses I have ever met (could possibly be because his owner has had him since he was 2 and he's now 16 and she lets him get away with murder because "it's cute"). Not saying all are like that, because I've seen some really nice ones, but just beware of the bad ones.
Awk, thanks, i've been told about Arabs and their reputations, which is why im hesitant to get a horse that's even a cross with arab. But then again my friends got an arab and she's coming along nicely because the rider's dedicated and very talented. I guess if I was to get a quarab i'd get one that I made sure suits me, like any other horse i'd buy. :) Posted via Mobile Device
