This is Mark. He was the best horse I have ever had the pleasure of riding/ driving. He would do anything you asked of him, except walk through water. I did everything with him except walk through water.

I had him from the his age of 7 to 33. I am still looking for another one just like him.

New Endurance Forum!

Hey all you endurance riders! I know there are a few in this thread ;) We now have our own forum for posting about endurance! It's located at http://www.horseforum.com/endurance-riding/ - but here's the catch: in order to keep it, it has to get active and STAY active! So please start posting anything endurance related there so we can keep our new home for endurance conversations! Thanks!

I hope you find one that's like him he sounded like a very nice horse. Laddy also thinks that mud puddles will get his feet dirty so he follows me around every mud puddle so he can have dry feet and be a diva, lol.

Mark always insisted he was a desert horse, no water in the desert. My friends always made fun of him because he acted so delicate, and took such good care of himself.

Exactly why would desert horses need to walk through water. My laddy is funny because he hates mud puddles but loves after a work during the summer or while getting a bath to get his face sprayed and when I say he loves it he does he looks at you til you spray his face. :)

The horse I ride is a 23 year old polish arabian mare. She used to do english and did dressage and small jumps for fun, but her boarder deserted her at my instructor's barn and he decided to keep her there. She now just goes on leisurely trail rides one a week or teach me in the arena ;)

ETA: My instructor also has a 35 year old grey arabian stallion that he has had and trained since he was 6. He used to trail ride and do gymkhanas, nut now he's been retired for 3 years...

I do dressage with laddy for fun too and also because he gets bored so quick and then finds things to spook at if he gets on the rail. And also he loves it and is good at it and I learn from teaching him. Good luck with the dressage and endurance! :)

Does an Arab cross count? Casey is a Pintabian with some TB way back. We mainly do trails, some dressage, backpacking/camping, and hoping to get into trail trials and endurance maybe.. Tried some jumping, Casey didn't really like it. Anyone else noticed how Arabians don't tend to be a fan of jumping?

I hate they deserted her like that but sounds like she's in a wonderful place! There's truely nothing better than riding an arabian!

Wow arabs can do amazing things and live forever! Its impresive he's 35 and was riding until he was 33!
