My mare is the stereotype spooky Arabian. In reality, she doesn't have any problem that a confident, reasonably experienced rider and a lot of riding wouldn't solve. Hopefull this 2 month string of unseasonably cold weather we've had will end soon...
My Appy gelding is 3/4 Arabian. You ought to roll a cigarette for him and stick it in his mouth, because he'll go along a trail at any pace you want, relaxed, drawling, "What next, Ma'am?" to my youngest daughter. To date, the only thing he spooked at was a trampoline hidden behind a fence. All he could hear was kids screaming, and all he could see was kids bodies flying up into the air. He WAS a bit concerned over what monster was doing THAT!
