Concerning the saddlebred / non arabian look, what do you say about this horse. I another forum people were excited how great it was but I couldn't really see why. Is this horse really looking "arabian"? What do you think?
Hard to tell with it standing like that. Put in a more araby position and then I'll be able to say.
Marilee - no horse is perfect! I think most of the classwinners were quite respectable and I have to admit after recent years when really un-araby horses appeared at the event this year the entrants were actually quite good. Besides, there's something about US conditioning. Last year Piaff looked a completely different horse, I didn't recognise him! I'm not saying it's better or worse, just different.
