    You don't say how much the horse weighs. I would guess about 1000 which he would be fine. The problem I see, since I don't know what the horse is like and am basing this off breed characteristics, is that the horse may be too much for him to handle as a beginner. Most arabians are hotblooded and have attitude.

    Oh he's a big sweetheart, gentle, quiet, not spooky or hot at all. I wasns't even sure he was purebred arab until I saw his papers. :)
    Honestly my husband would just walk him around, possibly on a short (30 minute or so) trail ride. I suppose we'll see how he goes.

    I read your question again and want to make sure about something. Were you asking if your horse would be able to hold him or both of you? I know people ride double on horses and we've done it with ours occassionally. But I wouldn't recommend it very often unless the horse is use to it.
