  1. Endurance Riding
    He is 19 has completed several endurance rides back in 2014-2015 and won a couple hundred thousand on the track. He hasn't been in shape for several years. Is it unwise to put a couple of years worth of conditioning on him again to get ready for Tevis? By the vets he is 100% sound. I just don't...
  2. Welcome! Introduce yourself here!
    Hi all, New member, so please bear with me! I am currently looking at a new horse. I am used to riding a 16.2 TB, and am now looking at a 14.2 Arabian. I am 5.1ft and weigh 52kg, so I sort of thought my size wouldn't be an issue, but now I look at this picture, I feel like I look too big for...
  3. New to Horses
    In 2005 I 'lost' my beloved horse and despite everything I remained determined to do everything I could to get him back. In 2018 I did eventually find Joe and he's now back home with me :) He was not dead, He was not in a bad place (Well he went to some questionable homes) but he's home...
  4. Horse Talk
    Hi, Just wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a rug that will fit and be waterproof (as far as possible) for an Arabian. She is a solid 15.2hh girl (though 34) with 5'6" as her standard size but I tend to find that ALL rugs I have tried over the years sit too low on her wither and/or...
  5. Horse Nutrition
    Hi all! I have a 12 year old Arabian gelding named Bo. He lives outside 24/7 with access to grain and hay year round. My vet recommended he stay off grain due to being such an easy keeper and being slightly on the chunkier side. I took him off grain, and have been feeding him 1/4 cup of Barn...
  6. Horse Nutrition
    Would really appreciate input on this subject. I purchased my mare in June and continued the recommended feed that the breeder suggested. The brand is Tribute Kalm Ultra. They would give her a quart each day and sprinkle it with electrolyte powder (Apple a Day by Finish Line). Fed her all this...

  8. Horse Breeds
    Hello,I will be studying in Langley,BC next year. I was hoping to buy a horse for myself in the future,do you guys have any suggestions for the breed? I am thinking of doing eventing, have been riding for 8 years,though it would be my first horse to own. I really like Arabians and had thought of...
  9. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    I know I know, this isn't really horse riding, but I just need some help with it. My horse needs a good 15 minute lunging before I ride her to get her pent up bucks out, and get her mentally focused on me so I can get her attention in saddle. The only problem is, she swings her head to the...
  10. Horse Nutrition
    Alright, this is kind of a long story so buckle up. A person I know (let's call him John Doe) currently has a horse. I've known for a while that the horse was not getting the best of care that he could get but a few days ago (5/5/17) when I was at John Doe's house, I was spending some time...
  11. Member Journals
    Hey everyone!!! I have an interesting story. I apologize if this is long. Some of you *might* remember me in here a few years back as "pineapplepastures" when I had my giant beautiful paint, Astro. I was living in Hawaii at the time & had to move to California. I couldn't afford to bring him...
  12. Horse Conformation Critique
    I'm so excited about this - Conformation isn't something you see in fora in Dutch. :D This is my mare - This is my friend's gelding - (Yes, same breed, only he's the luxury sort of haflinger :P A big Arabian, that's what he is.) My mare has lost a lot of weight, still needs to lose some...
  13. Horse Breeds
    My Arabian gelding measures 14.0h right now. He is an unregistered rescue, so I can't tell you anything about his parents. The vet estimated him to be 2.5 years old (so coming 3 in the spring). Can anyone tell me what height he should mature to? His rump is level with his withers, and it has...
  14. Horse Colors and Genetics
    Someone posted a mare for sale today that appears to be a brindle (she gave permission to post the pictures). Sire is a solid bay, dam is a leopard appaloosa. It looks like part of her got the LP gene and the other part didn't. Her face looks like varnish to me, and it would explain the light...
  15. Horse Breeds
    Hi there! I've been looking into my horse's bloodline and am currently trying to locate his full sister. His name is Promise Tu LeDoux and her name is Promise Quizzette. If anyone has any information or photos I would be delighted! Also feel free to post photos and comments about your Crabbet...
  16. Jumping
    So I have an 8 year old arab mare who went to jump school. when i got her back she seemed to not want to really go over any low jumps, (which is my level currently) I dont really know what to do, she likes jumping anything 2 feet and higher at the middle of a cross rail, but she hates anything...
  17. Horse Videos
    Destiny loves the snow. :) I uploaded this video of her last year. She actually looks like an Arabian when she's running around like this! (She's purebred, but a lot of people think she looks like a Quarter Horse!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXNqrL7IugQ I'm going to be uploading...
  18. Horse Tack and Equipment
    My arab mare doesn't seem to respect the bit I show her in, so I am trying to find something just a touch stronger, I currently show in a d-ring French link. If you can think of anything it would be really helpful, Emily

    What are some personalitie traits and characteristics that are common in Egyptian Arabians? What disciplines do they excel in? What experiences have you had with them(good and bad)? What is it like when you train one? Are mares, more mariesh becuase of the fact that they are already a hot...
  20. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I have an arab mare I am transitioning to western. The only problem is I cant find any cute cob size western headstalls. Does anybody know where I can find any?
