I agree. I hope that there are enough of us now to reactive or blend into the other group. From my reading on this site, there are a lot of riders all over the world, doing stuff with their Egyptian Arabians, many never ( or also
) in the show ring, and that is very inspiring for me. The show ring should never be the be-all, end-all for so many horses. They are so versatile and have so much to give. I know when I take my 2 mares down to the Las Vegas Farm Festival in 2 weeks for thousands of kids and adults, that's the first thing they say, "Can we ride your horse?" It's the memory of the movies---the Black Stallion, Spirit, Hidalgo-----the thought of riding that powerful horse, and being its friend too.
