    My Arab and my friend's QH appear to be the same color at the beginning of the season, both nearly black bays. This time of year? The QH is still very dark. My Arab? A lovely sunburnt orange. They...

    My horse is a short backed Arab. The Stubbens fit him fine. He's one to buck and LOUDLY protest if something is too long for his liking.

    Stubbens aren't the 'in' thing, but they do have a couple models geared toward TBs that will be significantly under $4000, especially if you find a used one.

    I love my Stubbens. I've got a Roxane and and ooooollllld Aramis. Both fit my long legs well. I know a lot of long legged men who ride and foxhunt in the Roxane. The Aramis is an old school no frills...

    Eh, I bought my Arab as a 3yo colt who had minimal handling. You could get a halter on him and drag him around. He'd been wrestled into having his feet done. He'd been ear twitched quite a bit.

    I use one of the aforementioned Tory "jumping hackamores" as well. Most people don't even realize its a bitless bridle. I have mine adjusted so it sits just below the cheekbones without touching...

    Sometime between 6-10 am and 5-10pm. Just depends on my day. I work less now so they get fed a little more consistently than when I had full time retail hours.
