  • Saddle pads at about 30 in. will fit most Arabians.

  • Their saddle will probably be wider then other saddles you have seen.

  • A western cinch of about 30 in. should fit the average Arabian.

Intelligence

Intelligence

  • Arabian horses are very smart.

  • They love to teach themselves tricks like throwing halters off a wall to get attention or pulling on the cross-ties when a another horse is on it, again for attention.

  • Some are able to open their own door! (as long as there is no clip on it)

    On the next slide, there will be a video showing a Arabian horse opening their own door.
