Dear Readers

I had recommended to some friends in Europe to visit the Aachen show. The report I got back is frightening.

Some of The remarks were: Horses were beautiful but we are afraid to own one of these Arabians, they are so eratic, so crazy and only special people can handle them. We are afraid that our children could not handle them, nor we.


People were screaming so loud, it scared us, it was almost uncivilized.

We have 2 Qhorses and wanted an Arabian, but will refrain.


I have been hearing these comments more than once also here in the USA
and have to agree, that someone who does not know the arabians, can get
bad ideas and refer such on.

I also feel, a show should not just be for the owners, but for the general public which will draw their conclusions by our behavior and that of the horses. It will drive people away.

Therefore, I am asking all your opinions as to what we can try to change
to put a better imagine of what an Arabian truly is like .

It is so sad.

The worst thing is, it doesnt just drive newcommers away sad.gif

One of my friends, that has a warmblood, went with me to a show, she left after the first 4 classes, she couldnt accept the way the horses were treated, and told me that this was why she NEVER wanted an arabian, and that it was worse than she imagined. even she asked me why a crazy horse could win, and if this was the disposition we wanted in the breed, since we would award it.
