Founder's Notes


Dubai is a nine year old Arabian gelding up for adoption from FalconRidge Equine Rescue. Dubai stands 15.3 hands tall. According to his old owner "He has been used in the past as a lesson horse with intermediate riders. He has done some jumping, some local/schooling shows in Western and English pleasure. Dubai has done mostly trail; Poway lakes, Bonita, Descanso. On trail is confident around dogs, bikes, strollers, golf carts, tractors, etc. Goes through water, loads in the trailer, stands very well for the shoer, loves loves grooming. He is not a very forward horse, a typical Arab and he will look around. If something makes him nervous he will become tense but will listen to you as you encourage him through whatever concerns him. If he spooks, he will spook in place.

He is an absolute sweetheart, loves to give hugs, has a "dog like" personality, and is very willing to please." Adoption fee is only $500.
