The Arabian'srnconformation and type have been selectively bred for longer than any otherrnbreed of horse.

rnrnThe Bedouins of the Arabian desert were dependent forrnsurvival on their Arabian horses. While they valued the beauty of their horses,rnthey were equally adamant that their horses were strong, with deep chests,rnstraight legs, large joints and good lungs to carry them across large stretchesrnof their desert homeland. Historical figures like Genghis Khan, Napoleon,rnAlexander The Great and George Washington rode Arabians.

rnrnThe prophet Mohammed,rnin the seventh century AD, was instrumental in spreading the Arabian'srninfluence around the world. He instructed his followers to look after Arabiansrnand treat them with kindness. He instructed that special attentions should bernpaid to the mares because they insure the continuity of the breed. He alsornproclaimed that Allah had created the Arabian, and that those who treated thernhorse well would be rewarded in the afterlife.

rnrnIn general, Arabiansrnhave a short, straight back (usually 23 vertebra as compared to 24 with mostrnother equine breeds), perfect balance and symmetry, a deep chest, well-sprungrnribs, deep girth and strong legs of thick density. An Arabian can most readilyrnbe identified by its finely chiseled head with a dished face, long archingrnneck, and high tail carriage.

rnrnNow one of the most popular breeds in America, the Arabians'rnincredible energy, intelligence and gentle disposition allow riders to excel inrnmost equine sports and activities.
