i was just wondering why so many of you guys on yr hate arabians? is it from experience, or do you just not like the breed in general?

when things get rough, you are what keeps me together

I can't stand the arabians like this



it's just disgusting..

I don't like how breeders are making them so small and delicate, I don't like seeing riders on the smaller arabians it freaks me out I feel like the horse is going to collapse. Especially western omg.

Breeders go as far as getting their horse's costemic surgery (http://www.midwestarabian.com/stallions) and I think that side of arabians is just disgusting. I have no issues with normal arabians I probably would never own one though.

what abra said for me too. personally I've never really been a fan of Arabs, the way the majority of them look/act, but I don't really have anything against the breed except the part abra was talking about.

I hate Arabs like Abra said, with the insanely dished faces and super tiny everything. My neighbor has a purebred Polish Arabian that I like because she looks like she won't be blown over by the wind and she doesn't have a stupid looking face and she has a nice temper soo

I despise them. The ones that I have seen are rude, awkward, and just ew. I don't like their personalities. I also think they are not pretty to look at, but that's my personal opinion.

I have not met many purebred Arabians but BamBam was a welsh/Arab cross and was the most amazing pony ever. He had a dished face but was just plain adorable. I actually like their body types, but would never ever own one, not my type of ride and wouldn't do well in what I do. Some Arab crosses can be nice though!

i love arabians! if i didn't do hunters i'd probably show the arabian breed circuit. my mare is a purebred. she's not super typey but i love the typey ones as well and she has amazing bloodlines.

I don't really have a like or dislike of them. I would own one but it would only be a pasture ornament so I won't. I think they are adorable but the temperament is a down side, plus they aren't your prime Hunter/Jumper candidates.

"those who don't like arabians have probably been outsmarted by one"
I like them fine, but again i don't like the uber dishy faces idk they look deformed.

I like arabians especially the ones with the super dished faces like Abra posted. I think they look beautiful and elegant. I've never heard of cosmetic surgery for horses before but I think that's disgusting.

Arabs just bother me. I have only met ONE arab out of 30+ that I liked, and he was around 30. I had to walk one, and man that horse was insane. She would not stand still, and would practically run me over by trotting circles around me. I did everything I could to make her stand, and nothing. Most arabs around her are like that. I don't like their temperaments/personalities. I will never one one, that's for sure. I have ridden a few and I don't like how they act under saddle either.

I have ridden one and he was super sweet but he has a twinkle toe trot that is very uncomfortable to ride.

Why would anyone dislike Arabians? That means they hate Shadow pon! As you can tell, I love Arabians. Every horse I have ever fell in love with as always been a Arab. I love their personality.

I've never met a full-blooded one, but Seven is an ArabxTB (we think), and he's a sweetheart. But I also have to agree, the ones with the super dished faces look kinda demented. No offense.

Why would anyone hate Arabians? They have such beauty, grace, agility, and they're probably one of the oldest breeds of horses. I love Arabians! - horselover11

Only those who risk going too far, can possibly find, how far they can go.
