Crazy IS wonderful
I love Arabians. Quite a different riding experience from other horses but I love their lightfooted speed and long moment of suspension at the gallop. It's like flying. I love their quirky, intelligent personalities, their high level of instinctive behaviour, their lovely high tail carriage and show-off nature. I love their endurance and the joy they have in racing up hills. I love their inquisitiveness and loyalty.
To be honest, I don't think I've ever met an Arabian who was spooky in a stupid way. Plenty of TBs and a fair few warmbloods, but no Arabians. They just have a lot of "go" in them, and like to think things through, so if you try and push them past something they haven't had a chance to investigate (which is usually a good idea with most other breeds) they can freak out. Whereas if you give them a minute to observe and think they will assess it as non-dangerous and move on. They're much less likely to see you as a leader I've found, but they will see you as a partner and trusted companion. And they have great memories!
Go the Arabians!
