hi im getting a anglo arab on loan in 2 weeks and ive neve had this breed or know anything about this breed..ive aways had cobs so ive gone from a table on 4 legs to a anglo arab lol who is also a chestnut.... any way id love to hear ur views on arabs etc...
looking for foxy 15hh coloured cob sold in colchester essex in 2002..
Some i have come across have been more 'nutty' then Arabians alone, due to having the TB influence, however the mare i owned myself was an Anglo and was very very unlike the AA stereotype.
Her 'mad moments' were far and few between. She was certainly no plod and took great pleasure in a very bouncy canter across a stubble field with tiny bucks added in every few strides, but she was a pleasure to own. Very gentle and sensetive. Not greedy or pushy, could be rather mareish in season, but it didnt last for long. She was a pleasure to have.
Just a few more months and we will be fine RIP Rocky x 92 - 27/06/06 x Your hoofbeats have become the very rhythm of my heart
I owned a lovely chestnut anglo arab, although to look at him you would have thought he was all arab. He was fantastic to ride - so comfortable and had endless stamina. My firend used to call him Duracell cos he never got tired, never even broke a sweat! When I first bought him he was three and had been doing cattle herding for up to seven hours a day .
However he needed loads of exercise or he would be really nutty. He could be absolutely fine, and then out of nowhere explode in a series of bucks and twists which could be really scary.
