    You've already gotten some great advice here, I just wanted to say that your horse is gorgeous!! I used to show my Arabians at open shows, and they did really well. But there will always be a few stock horse/QH judges out there who will just not even give you the time of day no matter how well you do, I just avoid those judges in the future.

    Many open shows have Arabian classes, especially for halter. That's nice because then you can show against Arabian only.

    Thanks Remali! I always think he's gorgeous so its nice to hear someone else thinks so, too. I think he will hold is own, I was just concerned about showing him "properly" and I have gotten some great advice from everyone here. I can't wait to get our show on! Lol.

    I have a QH that I show in hunter classes...and I have my share of times where QH judges give me the gate...those are the judges that give "Arabs at open shows" a bad name.

    I've seen an elite QH BREED judge give an ARAB grand champion in halter :)

    Most of the people I've seen (PERSONALLY) with Arabs that grumble about judges not liking Arabs have either crappy Arabs or have horses that aren't 'broke.'

    My advice to you: You have a well balanced, handsome horse. In halter classes, get him to arch his neck, as that will make the neck-chest attachment look better...

    And as mentioned, get him to go like the breed standard would ;)

    In riding classes, no matter what the show, he needs to be BROKE and consistent...that means: have a frame. Consistent with a nose up in the air, hollow back, quick falls isn't going to win ribbons, no matter what the breed.
