Hello, I'm new to the forum but also new to the arab circuit.
I have a 15 year old 1/2 arab 1/2 qh (registered on arab side) gelding. He stands at about 15.5 hands.
I was wondering if I could get any or all the info I can on the circuit (region 10), or if it's worth it at all to even start showing at arab shows now, since my horse is getting a little older, and my friend who shows Arab told me that you typically stop showing Arabians once it reaches about 6 years old?

Anyways, we show English better than Western, but we like to do both.
ANY advice or hints or information would help me out a lot!
Thanks!untitled.JPG

Welcome to ABN, Arabians are considered junior until 6 years old, They start their Adult show career at 6 :)

I see Dean has already explained that Arabs are really just getting started in a serious performance career at 6. The average amateur is riding a 10 to 20 year old. Many are older.

I am going to send you a PM as well.

As for the shows in your region contact Laura M as she is your regional director and can probably give you the info you need.

Good luck!

I do not think that there is really any age that is too old to show Arab circuit. I think that depends more on your horse's condition. You might want to consider coming out to one of the club shows in the region to watch and see if it is something you might enjoy. There are also numerous community shows in the region that might be interesting as well. Where in the region are you located?

welcome to ABN! today and tomorrow there is a Minnesota Arabian Horse Association show held at the MN Equestrian Center in Winona, MN. this is a little less than an hour from you - might be a wonderful opportunity for you to go and watch a Class A show and learn from watching. i agree with the others, arabians are well-known for having performance careers into their 20's if not beyond. as with anything, it is a matter of training and conditioning. i have to work all weekend, otherwise i would be up at the MN Eq center watching the show myself. my horse and i are not ready for the performance ring quite yet, but we will be showing later on this summer.
