Yes, Casper's rather spooky, but he's gotten much better over the years. He needs a very confident handler, because he takes his cues from his rider. If the rider's nervous, so is he. If the rider is self assured and calm, so is he.

You haven't had your girl that long, and she's young. Arabians take longer to mature, especially mentally. They're wonderful horses though, and love people.

That's something you'll need to work on, as your girl is taking her cues from you. Since you're afraid, so is she.

You can overcome your fear, it's just going to take time.

Another picture, just because I think he's cute:

He's fleabitten, which means his base coat (chestnut) is showing through the gray. Since your mare is black based, if she fleabites hers will be black.

Not all gray horses get fleabitten but a lot of Arabians seem to, especially the purebreds. Casper has pure Polish breeding.

With arabs I have found you have to earn their trust you need to get control over your fear and sometimes we just don't ever click with them have ou thought about an older been there done that dead head confidence builder? I speak from someone who has had an issue of a few crashes one being on my husbands mare that horse and I just don't like each other under saddle on the ground she respects me under saddle she is a pita I had a chance to get Dusty my older steady gelding he has taught me so much and my fears are gone I have so much confidence now.

Most Arabians will completely gray out by the time there 15, your girl has already grayed out a lot so she will most likely not stop.

Here is Sparky at two years old. I have seen a few baby pictures of him and he was almost black when he was born.


And here is what he looks like now at 10 years old.




In all my years I have only seen one Gray Arabian in person who has not lost his steel gray color over the years, his name is Dana Valenti and he is 9. Here are a few pictures of him that I took from this year and last year.









But looking at how much your girl has already changed I'm about 99.9% sure that she will not stop graying out. Sorry.
