Arabs ride vs. quarter horses: What are the odds?
Arabs are funny to rid. I have been on only a few in my life, unlike many other Quarter Horses and Paints. Arabs are also very fragile, which can be a plus or a minus with them. Crystal, a top-20 National Reining Horse Association pro, first came into the limelight at the tender ages of 9 when she was featured in Sports Illustrated because she was the youngest individual ever to claim a top-10 finish at the U.S. Arabian Nationals.
"A few folks get into difficulties with Arabs when they interprete the horses' responses so that they don't learn as well as, say, a quarter horse. That Arabs take a little longer to exercise. They are not so bodily powerful, and they were not specially raised for pure-breeding as long as there is cattle-breeding - although that is beginning to shift.
However, the specialised cultivation of a quarter horse means that it is a little bit simpler for him to do what the mining requirements meet. Crystal's observation is consistent with what the veterinary Temple Grandin, a PhD, said to me when I was writing an article with her a few years ago about how the horse thinks. They grouped Arabian horse with other fine-boned, anxious creatures that have a low margin of error for coarse use.
However, she also emphasized that the Arabs' high level of consciousness and intellect make them well trained with the right techniques. Crystal says if you are interested in trying an Arab, a half-breed test is a good starting point. At the end of the day, she says, it is important to treat each horse as an individually and find the best way of working for each horse.

Tips and insights into horse training
Throughout the different periods of the year when you may not be able to go horseback so much, there are still many things you can do to further your personal relation with the horse while working on equestrian abilities that are important when you can get back into the saddle. What is more, there are still many things you can do to help your horse grow and grow.
Part of the simplest things to do is to spend a few minutes of good craftsmanship working on floor-mannering with your horse. When you don't have an indoors training centre, you can simply do it in a stable. Ask your horse to give you the shoulder, the backhand and the whole torso (anything you want under the saddle).
It should only take a few moments and offer you and your horse precious training and a "binding time". "If you find that you have difficulties getting your horse to react quickly and accurately, don't be afraid to turn to our horse training professionals - you can get in touch with us using the link on the right.
The easy way istep 1 in security and the guidance you and your horse are looking for. Integrate this little "mini" practice into your everyday life when you are out and about with your horse. - Do horses need guidance? Let's face it, big horse is big animal and can be really bad. The majority of casualties occur because the horse has made a decision as commander, be it that it has influenced the reaction to the aircraft or that it is just in control (lack of respect).
Let me tell you a brief tale about how things can develop - I had a customer who had a rather compliant, nonreactionary horse. His horse liked to spend a lot of good quality with her and enjoy what he thought was a good connection to his horse. But often I had said to him when dealing with his horse that you let her be too near to you, she pushes you over in her head - "You have to move her over and get her out of your room, or one day she will go right through you as if you don't exist".
If you have not already integrated this very easy 1 Steps practice before you swing your legs over your horse, PLEASE do so. It'?s all owed to you and your horse. I suggested in the above training tip that you take some your horse's training to ask him a few question.
lf not, l'll give you encouragement to take your sweetness out. This " little practice ", which will not only take you out of the home and into the stable during the freezing winters, has been primarily intended to give you a yardstick for where your relation to you and your horse is before you simply go on board.
I' ll ask any horse I can get a foot on. It is one of the ways in which a horse can interact and determine its location in the flock that it can "push" each other. This is sometimes achieved by just stapling the other horse's ear and let the other horse know that this is my area and can scale to the plane of stepping or bit.
Although this behaviour is felt to be vicious or mean to humans, it is not seen as outrageous by the other horse - it is nothing other than the way they determine who is in control. Had you asked your horse to move away from you by sliding on his shoulders, and he/she did not lean anything - or even worst - back to you.
This is what can occur on the floor, just use your imaginations and remember how this behavior (essentially they think they are the leaders in your relationship) can spread to all types of accident or poor behavior under the saddle. What can you do?
