Re: [RC] Will I Ever Get Used To Arabs ?? - Sarah W

Tis true!! Arabs seem to always have something up to
get ya.  Mine reminded me of that today.

This morning I had the farrier out.  He is a good
friend of mine and knows my horses really well.  He
went with me to pick up my two Arab yearlings this
last winter and witnessed the larger of the two
(chance) being an idiot (my nose received a direct
connect with a hoof as horse and Sarah fell to the
ground).  Chance has calmed down a lot since, but
acted like a blithering idiot today for trimming -
rearing up and bolting just for the pure sake that he
felt like it.  Just a quick reminder that horses will
always remain unpredictable.  And later, my 11yo 1/2
Arab gelding and I played with gymkhana patterns - and
the dink went into a bucking spree.  He has done that
for YEARS... but, great reminder on how to do that
emergency dismount.

As for the original question... you MIGHT get used to
riding the Arab - but it usually takes lots of time
and practice.

Hi Melanie-
  The answer is: Probably not !  But that's the fun
of it all I think !
                     - Heidi Helly         ( who
thanks especially to Arabs 
has learned many creative dismounting styles in a
variety of saddles.  Just 
wear a helmet and use safety stirrups !!  )
