Alrighty so I bought an arabian gelding at an auction this weekend. Lots of questions and I am sorry if I sound like a dumbie.
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.
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.
I know all horses are different. But is there anything arabians do that is common. Like habits or traits
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
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 :/
That's it so far will probably have more questions sooner rather than later. Thanks for your help
