Like a lot of sensitive breeds, it's the owners who mishandle them and make them nuts. I've met good Arabs, and I've met crazy, high-strung Arabs (they generally resemble their owner!). I encounter the same with pasos. A lot of people locally won't deal with a paso fino, because they've been made crazy and people-wary with bad training. I love the breed, but when I went shopping, I thought I was actually window shopping because I didn't think I'd find one that hadn't been pretty much abused. Then I found my little mare, and she came right home!
