    My uncle breeds and trains Arabs and half-Arabs in Colorado. He uses them for reining

    I understand about that lunging. I know its wrong now but unfortunately at that time I was really young and incredibly ignorant. I am merely using it as an example of the endurance of that particular horse.

    There is a stud that I a really like near me. TDR White Stone. He is a reiner first and foremost, but apparently he jumps as well.

    If he's a show jumper, they certainly used a bad picture to represent him.

    I'm not a fan of the SE Arabians, nor do I particularly like the Al Khamsa bloodlines.

    He might be homozygous for black, but what they're not telling you is he's probably also a rabicano, which means any foal produced will most likely roan out.

    He's pretty enough, but I see on the owner's website that they're breeding a bunch of partbreds. The Arab/Friesian cross is the one that made me shake my head. Those crosses rarely turn out well, and the example they have hasn't convinced me otherwise.

    Just because a horse will allow it's self to be lunged by an ignorant person for ANY length of time has nothing to do with it's endurance. Even if the horse had been lunged correctly, it is no where near the same type of work load as carrying a person for miles over varying terrian AND passing the vet checks.

    I don't think he's a show jumper, just that he does do some jumping. I'm not touting him as the best thing ever, just showing an example of "what arabians can do". I'm with you on the SE thing. I'm more of a polish girl myself. But he's a good "do-er" and not just a look how pretty I am horse, which I like, even if I would never breed to him. It is refreshing to see an arab doing something that they "shouldn't", or at least what is not traditional for them to do.

    One would think if you were now older and less ignorant you would have either not mentioned something so foolish that you did in the past or said along with the post that you realize how foolish it was.

    I have to agree with MLS on this one, lunging for way too long in no way shows the horses ability to do actual endurance.

    My BO deals exclusively with Arabians and half-arabs. Her forte is country pleasure, but she does a lot of saddleseat and teaches sidesaddle, Western and English pleasure, and probably some other stuff. She'll show youngsters at halter for clients, though.

    My Spanish Arabian mare's father was competitive in reining and cutting, though most of the other horses in her family tree excelled at driving.

    A hugely versatile breed, sharp as a whip to boot. Nothing but respect for 'em.
