We just got a 20 year old arabian and she looks horrible. She is very thin. She has patches of hair missing but I am not sure if my other horse is pulling it out. How can I put weight on her quickly and are there any problems with arabians that I should be looking for?

    Read the Arabian Horse Article attached as that might help. Don't worry about puting weight on "QUICKLY" Be concrned that she is getting a good diet and is able to eat freely as needed. She will achieve her normal weight. Did she have the patches of hair missing when you got her? If you feel the other horse might be pulling it out, can they be separated?

    Mix some mild horse shampoo with some veterinarian strength iodine ask the vet for strenth of iodine . Take a manure sample (fresh) to vet to save money many wormers are sold over the counter. Not all are found in the manure. Countsult with your vetrinarian.

    You can't hurt this breed. They are very strong animals. Even Ponies can hold 2-3x their weight, so there would be no problem in you riding him. Only ride bareback on some occasions though, because direct pressure on their back can cause some slight pain once in a while. Otherwise, GO FOR IT! You'll have fun and so will your horse! :)

    I absolutely love horses but sadly I'm not allowed my own yet, I ride at a riding school which has taught me a lot in the past 6 years I've been riding. I'm only 14 but have a lot of experience with horses. my favourite pony is freckles she's a beautiful 15 year old cob who is very forward going but she listens to your commands, if she's going to fast and you want her to slow down do half halts and she'll immediately come back to a fast trot. cobs are beautiful jumpers and have a beautiful personality, I recommend a cob or a tb they're both lovely to ride :)

I own a Polish Arabian and he is now white. He is 13 years old and I have owned him since he was 5 years old and only 90 days into training. I have been around horses all my life. After getting my daughters old enough, I was finally able to start riding again in my forties. Faress is the arabians name, yes in the beginning I hit the ground a lot and often. Never was I thrown, but he did spook a lot. Took me awhile to get my seat back since we were learning dressage together. I can only tell you that the bond we share is like no other. He is the smartest horse I have ever owned. He can learn a trick in one day. He and I sleep together in his stall. He is loyal like no other horse. So all of you who do not like Arabians probably couldn't ride one because they are not for the green rider. Nor the chicken hearted. You treat them well and with kindness, they will love you forever. I also own a Warmblood. He is beautiful and big and great at dressage and I love him. I can only say the Arab is the most loving horse I have ever owned. When you lie down in his stall on a blanket and you wake up and he is lying next to you, you know this is the greatest bond ever.

    Hi Lorna, I read your comment I myself came across the arabian by pure accident and now my children ride arabians. I couldn't agree more with you what you wrote was true, correct and beautiful.Yes it is true people who do not like the arabians do not understand their Beauty, Loyalty and Charm. All I can say they have a lot to learn about horses.

    So Awesome. I have had my Arab 22 years. They are amazing animals, and only a few can appreciate their beautiful spirits. We are the lucky ones...

    I have had Arabs as a child and love them...I too took a break from horses to raise a family and started back riding in my 40's...I rescued a neglected arab one and a half years ago...almost lost him many many times the first winter due to severe illnesses that he came with....I too found myself looking up at him from the ground as it does take time to get balance back...we have a great time together and like my other arabs I have had, he is just the sweetest and most loving ever...we affectionately call him a big puppy....love that guy

I have just purchased a 12 year old Percheron/Throghbred X. She is absolutely beautiful and smart. I have ridden her about 8 times now and she moves off the leg beautifully. I have been working on the bond between us and getting used to her big movement. Due to her size I had a saddle fitter out to fit her with a custom saddle. I'm sure this will be much more comfortable for her than an off the shelf saddle. I am riding her with a bareback pad now till my saddle arrives. Can't wait to get it. We will be going to the mountains to ride, a little jumping and dressage. I hope to have many happy years with her.

Hi! I have a question that I'm hoping I can get answered. I have been searching for almost 2yrs for a draft horse that's 19h+. I've had both light and heavy horses throughout my 36yrs of riding and prefer the heavy. I have an 18'3h belgian gelding named Jake and a Clydesdale stallion named Sampson....my husband and I want 1 more big guy lol... I have found a 3yo Percheron gelding that I'm really considering buying. He's a little over 18'3h...I know he's still growing... I'm just wondering if anyone can give me a guesstimate on how tall you think Jasper (that's his name) might end up at. (I know they can grow until 7-8y?) He is many states away and I haven't actually seen him in person yet...just videos and pictures. We strictly ride our guys.. we don't pull with them... not that that matters but I figured I'd throw that in. I have shown successfully in hunter/jumper, dressage and cross country. I plan on just doing a little dressage with him strictly for fun... I love training and seeing the outcome. My drafts have always been bought full grown so that's why I'm not sure about his height etc. I know more about the light horses in that dept. If anyone can help me out I'd appreciate it so much! Thank you :)

If you measure from mid knee to the cornet band, whatever that is in inches translates to how tall the horse will be in hands when fully grown.
