I feel like a bad mum...he came so very highly recommended by people who I thought were my friends. NEVER AGAIN will I trust someone else with my horse. I don't care if my insurance is crappy. It's not happening. Also crappy saddle=QH "cowboy" trainer who doesn't like Arabians. Best fitting saddle he had, I wasn't even aloud to bring my own bridle there, so he definitely didn't want my saddle.

    Sorry for the rant in the middle. Thank you so much for critiquing him! :)
    It's all good. When we know better, we do better. Besides, you're not responsible for the actions of others.

    Have him checked over and start a stretching program and encourage him to stretch and seek contact and you'll lose the high-headedness.

    I think he's absolutely gorgeous! I'm not an expert on confirmation, but he looks good to me...i like his kind eye. Probably my only critique is that he could use some more muscle, especially on his neck and butt.

    I think he is a cute horse. I do agree he seems to be very tense over his back. I also noticed the western saddle looking as if it is not a good fit for him.
    He also looks to be fairly hot and or just not sure about where he is ar what his job is. That being said. After you have him checked over and can work with him on a regular basis when the footing is much better, I think he will turn out to be a nice little horse for you.
    Wishing you all the best.
    He sure is a pretty horse....

    From what I see he could definitely use some muscle, especially on his hind end. A little bit of weight might help as well. Other than that he looks beautiful. It's hard to tell how his confo is from those pics but it's nothing horrible. He seems very high headed though, even for an Arab.

    So all in all just do some work on flexing, collection and extension to get that head lowered, and plenty of movement and work for his shoulder and hind muscles.

    Honestly, there are a lot of bitterly jealous people out there many of which we find ourselves boarding with. I have had it happen before to the point that they were abusing my horses behind my back. Eventually that one person got kicked out but it didn't stop the remarks. I wound up leaving that stable and going to a more laid back friendly place(unfortunately not everyone has that option). Just keep your chin up and worry about how you feel about him. Be proud of the horse you own. Best of luck with everything though! He's a beauty. :)

    Hi there! I have owned Arabs all my life and know that they are smart beautiful horses that have super sweet personalities!

    He is beautiful! He looks like he would make a cute hunter horse!
    One thing I would suggest is shortening your martengale a little bit to aid in helping him round down into the bridle (not enough to be pulling on him though!!) to help him keep soft in the bridle work with lots of circles and bending around your leg! :) Remember with Arabians they are sensitive and Gentle but Firm is the best way to handle them!

    As to a chiropractor YES! Even slipping in mud out in the pen can leave your horse twisted or tweaked and can hinder him when he is working!

    Happy working! :)
