    Hmmm.....would make sense....and the cutter, Kody, is not doing too shabby either

    Arabian and Half-Arabian Reining Horses - Quarter Horse News - The News Magazine of the Performance Horse Industry

    Excellent article. There ARE lines of Arabs that can be competitive, we just haven't put the time required into those lines. Xenophann and his foals regularly won open competition as well as Arab specific competition. It may not have been at national level for open, but they certainly are approaching that point.

    Purebred Arabs are much better built for Dressage then jumping, and a lot more Arabs have gotten to the Grand Prix Dressage ring then the Grand Prix jumper ring. Like all things, because there are breeds that do it EASIER, people don't take the time and money to find out what Arabs can really do. I finds many breeds face the same prejudice. There have been a LOT of QHs that probably could have turned heads in the English show rings but never got the chance because it's just easier to gamble on a Warmblood.

    I find many "breed restrictions" are far moreso to human insight limitations then actual breed limitations. Of course good conformation always plays a part and an Arab bred halter would be silly to haul into a reining ring, but just like there are MANY strains and types of Quarter horses, so are there with Arabs as well.

    And just an FYI, I beat every QH I ever raced on both Zierra and her dam. Perhaps it was the shock of snickering at my little Arabs and then having them explode off the start line faster then any QH. Perhaps an Arab couldn't beat a RACING QH, but to say they couldn't beat a mediocre QH is utter and complete hogwash.
