That's great! I wish you two good luck in amateur junior horse! I'm not very familiar with endurance horses but hunter type arabians are really pretty to watch move. Only recently has my 17 year old calmed down just ever so slightly so you can ride him without hitting the dirt so frequently (if you lunge lol) so at 3 your Arabian I know must be full of energy all the time lol!

In a barn full of arabs in show training and at least 4 his age, I'm told often how much more energy he has than all the others - including the other youngsters. Lol! It's all harmless energy fortunately.

Thanks! I'm used to hunt, but junior horse will be a totally different experience. Good thing I'm in ammy classes!

No problem. I've never done junior horse on an arabian either. Instead of getting used to the classes I've got to get used to the whole show again lol. I haven't been to any "arabian" horse shows in a while I've gone to open shows but I want to get back to the "real deal" sometime soon.

Well... If Rio counts (half arabian/half twh), western pleasure, showmanship, barrel racing, goat tying .. (hes 17hh), keyhole, learning horsemanship and reining, and loves jumping, hasnt ever seen cows. And of course, good ole trail riding. (:

My daughter (almost 11) rides hunt seat and dressage with her Arabian. Mostly 4-H and local shows and possibly 1 or 2 recognized dressage shows this year. They are currently at training level. We are also going to do more trail riding this summer.

Love, love, love having an Arab!

English trail/pleasure horse.

I'm still trying to decide!!! I have shown my gelding a couple of times in English pleasure and equitation and have taken many lessons and clinics in dressage on him. Lately, we've been working on WP, but I am not sure that I like it for him. It doesn't feel like it suits his movement very well (or maybe that's just me). Mostly, he is a fluff around the pasture pony. We trail ride a bit, but he is a huge chicken unless he's with a group of 4 or more horses.

I am a bit frustrated because I know he has a lot of potential, but I don't have the experience to know which direction to go. I am not highly competitive, but I do want to see both of us excel at something. Unfortunately, competition is probably the best way to know if you are getting better. I am hoping to find a good trainer this summer who can give me some training and some insight.

We're in England and just started our first season with endurance GB. He's doing really well with two grade ones so far. I'm a novice to endurance but he is advanced qualified with his old jockey. Looking forward to our first 50km ride at the end of the month :)
