Arabian horses strut their stuff

The Arabian horse breed is arguably one of the most beautiful with its concave profile and proud carriage. In 2018, during the National Endurance Ride Championships, I was lucky enough to go on a tour of an Arab stud. Because of the breed's toughness and spirit, Arabs are very popular as endurance mounts. One at a time, four stallions were shown at liberty in the arena. Later, we were driven out to see the mares in the paddocks. Although I wasn’t taking photos for the website at the point, I had my trusty point and shoot camera with me and managed to get some quite nice shots. I had forgotten all about these photos but came across them again today. I hope you like them.

I don't think your country has a lot of horses. Is that right?

My eight year old great granddaughter has become obsessed with horses. She asked me about Arabians recently so I showed her photos I found on the internet. I will show her yours, they’re gorgeous!

@JWMILLER @HomewardBound Yes, it does seem that many young girls become besotted with horses and riding. I was one of them.

These are the best obviously. They were whizzing round the arena so fast I have some of just heads, just tails, just dust!!!, legs cut off, etc.

Some are quite highly strung too but they do very well in endurance.

All the best endurance horses are either pure or part Arab.

@JudyEv They use them for that here also. I have also seen some good barrel racing horses that were at least part arab. They are very agile and can turn around the barrels easily.

The owner of the stud has several of her stock competing in Endurance and bought some photos the other day. We went these to her just for her interest. I'm sure she'll like them.

They are such beautiful animals. One of our friends is part owner and races his horse in some important races. A money maker, too.

The collage cropped the photo a little but in its entirety, the tail looks very 'fairy-like'. It looks longer than the horse.

There are several different horses there, not that it matters. I can imagine the place becomes chaotic after Derby Week.

The shots of beautiful horses are wonderful. We are still watching people riding horses on McLeod's Daughters,,,on and on.

Absolutely stunning. Where my step mother boarded her horse, a quarter horse, there were 2 Arabians. They are majestic creatures.

Welsh Mountain ponies are exquisite too and look like miniature Arabs. There are a couple of quarter horses competing in endurance and their riders love them too.

The good ones would be. They are often highly strung and a bit of a handful for an amateur.
