What forum am I on??
Before you ... "jump in, get your feet wet" ... OP, how much experience do you have? Do you have a trainer to work with?
Arabs, unfortunately, are a tougher sell to begin with because of various stigmas against them. You can't say that you can just "always sell it" if it doesn't work out - what if the horse has lameness issues? Training issues? Other issues that cost the OP money and make it unmarketable?
Be very - very - careful with free horses. They're free for one reason or another.
