I have to say that this thread has become quite disturbing. As a newbie, and brand new 100% papered/registered Arabian owner, I cannot understand why anyone would be so negative about the Arabian Breed.

Don't let it bother you. There seems to be a periodic amount of Arabian bashing on this list - other breeds too, for that matter. Ignore it or have fun with it, but don't let it disturb you! To paraphrase Forrest Gump, "superiority is as superiority does". If the breed bashers can bring some other breed to endurance riding and sweep it like Arabians have been for the past umpty years, then good for them. Haven't seen the numbers change lately, mind you, and even if they had, no one will stop you (and me) from riding a great Arabian horse.
