Sorry Moonie, time to move on. I completely agree with you.
Of course, my only experience of Arabians was in Bahrain. However, they were all voice trained (and spoke Arabic) and would come when you called. If they thought you had a treat for them, they'd come even when they weren't called!
My friend Talal would ride Matrouk, a very fine stallion, bareback without a bridle. He'd hang on to a handful of mane at speed, just in case, but otherwise it was all knees and voice. Of course, Talal was probably born on horseback and could certainly ride about as soon as he could walk...
All my others are like the ones you played with. :grin: Dusty (my stud-muffin) is 3rd level, I can (and have) ridden him sans tack, even in breeding season, with no problems. Dusty, though - you have to think *for* him. He's run into *so* many walls because I didn't tell him to turn......(he's a doofus!)
Magic ('Flutterbutt's' mom) will practically run over you if she thinks you have a treat. Yesterday, I didn't - but I had a brush, which is even *better* She was constantly in my face - "you wanna pet my baby? Fine. Brush me First!"
I made the mistake of buying Moonie from DW Arabians in CO (Oogie.....need I say more?) She's got the bloodlines, she's got the looks...but not the personality. I think she'd do fine as an only horse - with no horses to bond with, she'd *have* to bond with the funny 2-legs.
Or so I hope....:grin:
