    I wonder if more people dared to show their arabians under saddle in normal shoes and with that lovely long flowing stride it might catch on?
    Fashion is so hard to change, in the UK you don't stand a chance in any sort of ridden showing class unless your horse has a long flowing stride - with maybe some exceptions as the welsh cobs and that type still have some knee action

    Well, the US has finally caught up. Now there IS a venue for what Europe values. It's called Sport-horse, and evaluates a horse with balanced fairness based on natural abilities without artificial or man-made enhancements. Long, flowing strides, temperament, conformation, manners, etc., are equally weighed and points given. A nice head or name doesn't cut it. A few who know little about this say it's just a place horses go that can't do anything else. But I'd like to see a hyper, ill-mannered caricature of an Arab compete. ;)

    Here's more info for those interested in a NON-political showing arena:

    A few pics were taken down previously due to a misunderstanding:
    Here's Magic with a young lady who won 1st and 2nd place with her. This photo illustrates Magic's Crabbet breeding: for example- calm, gentle natured, responsive, along with her tractability, especially with children.



    And this pic evokes the emotions of the moment and little Miss's seriousness with showing..



    THIS is the type of Arabian I am breeding. Gentle, substantive, intelligent, tractable, willing, trainable, and loyal.

    Druydess we agree that the arabian in its original state can be the ultimate horse.
    I do enjoy the sport horse competitions and that is what I am aiming for if any get into the show ring.
    Those giraffe/greyhound looking horses that dominate the showring may be pretty but IMO are not functional.
    We do this breed no justice in the long term by continuing the practice of allowing these horse to represent the breed.
    When one wins the TEVIS and is a National Champion in the halter ring I might think of breeding them. Shalom

    The sport horse classes would suit me great, thanks for the link. The few years I spent in the arab showing scene in the UK were great and the people were so friendly and helpful and the people we met here when I explored the possibility of buying an arab were also really nice, it was just the very narrow flimsy horses and the typical rail class showing that put me off. In a ridden class in the UK you do all ride around together first - change direction by riding across the ring then followed by individual show, remove saddles and horses trotted up in hand and inspected for conformation and then the judge rides each horse - in a big class the lower end horses are often sent out.
    I was linked to a barn by someone who knew them when I was looking and wish they had been nearer to me as I liked the look of this mare they had, I guess in a country this size you have to be prepared to travel more than we're used too

    The more I look at the type of horse you are breeding the more I am tempted - all I need is another stable!!!! Please don't tell my husband I am even thinking of it!!!!!

    Jaydee's got the virus, jaydee's got the virus.....
    Do it! Arabs are known to wrap husbands around their little hooves.....mine did
    Im in the process of deciding to go back to breeding too. We have the place, the time, and once I conquer my biggest problem, letting the foals go to new homes (they're all my babies, ya know), I'm good to go
    OP, just wanted to congratulate you. Excellent choice
    I knew El Shaklan's breeder, had two Om El Arab bred horses myself many moons ago when living in Germany.

    Stop it stop it stop it!!!!
    I had exactly the same trouble parting with the horses we bred (not arabs) and I think it was partly why we gave up doing it. I had one called Daisy that I held on to till she was 4 and priced her so high then someone offered more than we could refuse so she had to go, I was sobbing my heart out while we were helping load her, they must have thought I was crazy!!!
    If I could find someone to have our ID on loan I would have one in a shot but I don't have the room without one going and she's the one that least suits any of us - nothing wrong with her, she's a lovely girl.
