We show them -- we haven't shown any at breed shows recently because between my hubby's bad back and the little kids, we don't have the manpower to be hauling baby horses around and teaching them the ropes of in-hand showing. But we've been showing our gelding at local dressage shows and he's doing great. Wins a blue ribbon in nearly every class he's entered in, although usually he needs a warm-up class to settle himself down first... but that's to be expected with a 4-year-old.
Cute! Yeah, Arabs are a little too "hot" for dressage, although don't get me wrong they do benefit from the training. They just get bored with the slow pace. Their stamina is terrific though. That one's a cutie-pie!
Thanks Elizabeth. We think he's found his niche, he is going to be a one day eventing horse, which includes dressage for my daughter and jumping for him. She just has to talk him into a little compromise!
