  1. Post your 2007 Mounts

    What are your horse's bloodlines?? Her coloring on one side of her face looks scarily like Sam's coloring. Although that could be coincidence.

  3. Bareback Riding?

    I am another one of the people who rides bareback without the pad. Yet again, even with a big wither, it is more secure for me to ride. He'll get the hang of it eventually. While I was still growing, it made it very hard for me to balance, so I rode bareback more often than not to work on it.
  4. Braiding Disaster! - Update w/ More Pics

    you have made some great progress from that first attempt. One other tip to add in, is hair gel works well if put in the top of the mane before braiding....Although I mainly braid running braids instead, it may work with button braids. Keep on practicing and good luck!

    Okay. Maybe I should have been more clear. When I said dressage style classes, I meant Arabian Show Hack. Sorry about that!

    Basically, my question is, what are the rules about showing with a pelham and dressage saddle in any dressage-style class? The lines are pretty blurred if you ask me. I could not even find any definite answers in the USEF rulebook, and I have been reading it a lot lately. Although, I do have a tendency to skip things. If anyone knows the specifics about this "rule" it would be great if someone responded. thanks a bunch! [ 06-18-2007, 12:45 PM: Message edited by: ArabLova11 ]

  9. Hey Arabian people, what do you think?

    She is adorable! And as for the training issue, even if she is not trained under saddle yet, my horse Sam was not trained under saddle until he was 6 or 7 either and now he is doing wonderful. Age is not a problem with Arabs. All I can say, is I agree that the horse will tell you what she wants to do once you train her some more. My instructor thought Sam would be a Western horse until I started riding him, and we figured out he likes extension more than collection. Good luck and she really is gorgeous!

  11. Barn Rules

    okay, one of the rules at our barn that is reinforced constantly since young children come and take lessons is NO RUNNING(in the barn) another one is, If your horse dirtys it's stall, and you are there, you are entitled to clean it out. There are a lot more, but I actually need to leave for lessons now

  13. best bit...

    Honestly, coming from another Arabian exhibitor: DO NOT change your bit unless you have a reason to. At this point, snaffles are one of the hottest bits in any english ring in Class A Arab shows. The only other bit that is as popular at this point that I can pick out is that pelham(stronger than a snaffle) and the kimberwicke(also stronger than the snaffle) The horses that place the highest are the ones that look the most trained and move that best. Unless you are showing Class A western, steer away from those big bits. Keep it as simple as possible

  15. In praise of proper training and a mild bit

    Sam and I recently moved from our pelham(jointed) to a loose ring snaffle, and he's doing better in it too. I think some of these horses are just so sensitive, and a lot of the bits are just too harsh, so they try to run away. Sam was never one for running, but his chewing of the bit has reduced, which is very good for us. kudos to you!
