Hello Everyone! So it is official. I have crossed over to the "dark side". I have fallen in love the Arabian breed. I own two now and they are my babies. One I have my sights set on being a super star western pleasure horse. He's with my friend getting his start. I have started several myself but I don't know the disciple well at all and figured it would be best for him to get the right buttons from a professional and I'll take lessons in the discipline. My question is on my other gelding, Nate! He's with me and I'll be starting him soon. He's just started round pen work and long lining. He's smart and seems to really enjoying having something to do but he's quite the giraffe (15.3 hands with a 16 hand butt!!) so I think he needs some more time before I sit in him. I come from a dressage and eventing background. I have always thought this horse was a super mover and I still plan on making him my dressage horse. However, I am interested in playing around in the main ring Arabian world not just sport horse. My question is for all you Arabian savvy people. Do you think Nate's got any potential in the main ring? I am thinking hunter but I really don't know! He's also barefoot and butt high now. Let me know what you think of him. Either way I'm super excited about him. I've also attached a picture of him as a weanling when I first got him. He was quite the ugly duckling!!
