  1. Horse Breeds
    Hello, (skip to the BOLD sentence for the questions) Before you read this I wanted you guys to know that I've ridden an Arabian ONCE when I was little so I kind of know what it is like, but that was a while ago. I'm not being super lazy by not doing any research about these questions. I know at...
  2. Horse Training
    Hello I just acquired a wonderful 4 year old arabian/saddlebred gelding. He's a 'failed' show horse. The original owner sunk about 80 grand into his training and he just hated showing and would spook at something at least every time in the arena. He is reactive. His original owner just wanted to...

    I am training an Arab gelding he is 2 and he is a rescue.He is a type of horse that is "I will be an angle for 20 minuets " and then he gets impatient and starts getting harder to work with.I know he is an arab and I know he is 2 so he wants to play and that is why they chose me for him I am one...

  5. Horse Training
    Hello everyone! I have a 21 year old Arabian I ride in pretty much everything (mostly barrel racing/ hunter under saddle/ western pleasure). Anyways, I am wanting him to get more butt muscle :lol:, I know he is no quarter horse that can get huge muscles, although this past summer he did start to...
  6. Horse Breeds
    Hi everyone! Wondering how my horse's conformation is? He a 21 year old, purebred Manitoba Arabian (the farm he was bred at breed's chunkier Arabs rather than your traditional Arab) He get's winters off so in some pictures he's a little heavier, but during the summer he get's really in...
  7. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hi everyone! I will be going into an endurance race with my Arab this summer, I do not want to spend loads of money on a endurance saddle, so I will just use an English one. What is some tack I should get to go along, specific bridles, pads, stirrups? Any help would be great! Thank you! :D
  8. Horse Conformation Critique
    I'm just wondering any critiques you can give me. I know the photo isn't the best angle. I should get a better one tomorrow!

    Okay, so I've been working with my new fourteen year old Arabian gelding for just under a month now. He doesn't tie yet (that is coming very soon), or lunge. However, he leads amazingly well, at least for select people, given he hadn't been worked with in the slightest before I got him in late...
  10. Saddle Fitting Issues
    Hi! I own a Crabbet Arabian gelding. He is 9 years old, & I'm assuming he's about 14.2-14.3 hands high. About 6 months ago, I purchased a brand new Silver Royal Dallas Barrel Saddle for him. (I ride Western, my main goal is barrel racing so I figured that'd be the best option. Plus they're...

    My 16hh Arabian gelding has not been improving on the trail, and seems to be going downhill training wise. He is super nervous and spooky at everything! He will look at something at and then jump to the side, and start a bolt. He also when riding in a group will not go more than 10 ft behind the...

    A lot of people I speak to seem to think Arabs are crazy. I'd like to know your opinions on them, as they seem to get a bit of bad press What do they excel at? How trustworthy are they? And how even/hot tempered are they? Thank for your input :-)
  15. Horse Conformation Critique
    Hi everyone. I am hoping you guys can give me some pointers on what to look for conformation wise when judging Arabs. I know they are quite a bit different then other horses so I'm not quite sure where to start with them.
  16. Horse Breeds
    Thanks for reading this new thread! I am relatively new to Florida, and so far I'm having trouble connecting with others in the Arabian & Half-Arabian community. There are many clubs & associations, but few are very well organized, and they don't seem to connect to each other much (at all). So...
  17. Western Riding
    Hello, My arab fits perfectly in the english/dressage world of riding and I love riding english as well. I did ride western on one of my horses that was a paint in the past but I have always thought that an arab doing western was just gorgeous. I know my Laddy wouldn't be a western horse at...
  18. Horses for Sale
    I have a wonderful 3 year old Arabian mare for sale. She does need a bit of work done still but she has been started. I got her from a lady who had both her and the mother and had never touched ether of them, so she has come a long way from not being able to get even 10 feet from her at 3 years...

    Hi ! :D I'm a new member, so thought I'd come and introduce myself. I'm Gem and have been riding on and off for 16 years now. I currently have on loan a real quirky cheeky chappy called Joey. He's a 15.3hh chestnut Spanish/Egyptian Arab gelding. He was hand reared and really is a 'people...
  20. Horse Health
    Ok. I own a 15.4hhish Arabian mare who i bought 3 months ago in a starvation case. I have been noticing on the wall of her back leg near her flank and stifle there is a dent. It's on both sides. I am not sure if it's just were she needs more muscle or what. The internet didn't help.
