Ya, there has been some debate about Gulastra and whether or not they can say he is SE or not.... depending on how you look at it (altho it is still debated).

Yeah, really weird. It said certain offspring of Gulastra have to be considered SE, Julep being one. Why these and not those......beats me.....
I've had my share of arguments on a certain forum with a certain lady.......

Hey Remali, my awesome little fountain of information. What is the best time to start saddle breaking an arabian. I thought someone a long time ago told me it was a little older than other horses. Riki is partially broke, they rode him bareback for awhile and a couple of times with a saddle. He's going to be turning 5 may 7th.

I think starting under saddle at 3 years is a decent age, sort of depends on the horse. I did a lot of groundwork before that with mine, never working them real long and keeping it light and enjoyable. But seeing as your boy is 5, he's plenty old. He also has a lot of substance, that helps.

LOL. I know, it makes no sense to me either. I was reading some older posts on an Egyptian forum about it, it's confusing and interesting, a little wacky.

Oh I see..... nah, I don't think he is too old at all, he's still young yet. My mare didn't really fill out until she was about 6 years old or so. Arabians are very hardy, and very long-lived. He's a youngster yet, sounds like he only had a little training, so he's sort of a clean slate yet.

Oh ya, for sure they are verrrry smart. They catch on very quickly and are so eager to please. I bought my mare when she was 18 months old, I did her training myself, she was so easy to train it was as if she was already trained, ha, she just did everything I asked of her and never once raised a fuss or anything, both of my purebreds were the most quiet and calm horses I've ever been around.

Assuming the horse is sound, there is no such thing as "too old" to be saddle trained.

I once saddle broke an 18 year old arab mare who had been a baby factory her whole life until then, was only sort of halter broke. She went on to be a retired woman's trail horse.
