what types of bits do arabians use most. i tried snaffle and he only responded by direct rein. and he is suppose to neck rein.
Whatever they go in best. There's no special 'Arabian' bit out there.
If you bought him at auction, how do you know he's supposed to neck rein? Because someone told you? Yeah, sellers never
lie, especially at auction. question 2
do i have to invest in an arabian made saddle if my current twh saddle fits him. i just need to get a different pad to fit his high withers. but everything seemed to look really good.
Get a saddle fitter out if you're unsure of proper fit. Each horse is different, and not all Arabians need an Arabian type saddle.
i know all horses are different. but is there anything arabians do that is common. like habits or traits
Not all Arabians toss their heads, but some do. Most throw their tails over their backs when they're running at liberty, and sometimes under saddle.
I'm not exactly sure what you're asking though, as far as habits. question 4
he won't come to gate when we are there. we can walk to him but have to hide the halter. which is fine but i want him to want to come with me at the same time. so how do i get him to come to me because he wants to.
keep in mind. i put him in our round pen and he ran himself without me asking for it. then came to me and followed me around. but once we went to the field it was like oh yea human gone lol
This isn't an 'Arabian' thing, it's a 'horse' thing. Work with him and spend time with him.
Don't always ask him to work when you go to get him. You sometimes need to make it just about getting to know each other, and not working. question 5
is there any special gaits they have. he moved out very nicely with high steps in his trot and canter. it was very flowy and beautiful to watch. is it just w/t/c or am i missing something :/
Arabians aren't gaited, if that's what you're asking. Yes, w/t/c, gallop, and hand gallop are what they do, pretty much like every other non gaited horse out there.
