An Arabian horse is a beautiful but powerful one. They have been utilized for riding, in competitions, and for their excellent speed and endurance. They are famous for being hardy horses and bode great stamina to travel very long distances. They are a good choice for those residing in hot climates such as the desert.

Arabian Temperament

Most do not assume that a horse can have a touching spirit, but the Arabian breed has the ability. These horses are faithful companions to their owners and will never stray once they have been trained by their family. The Arabian horse also tends to have a very solid head on them with an abundance of bravery and courage.

Arabian Appearance

The Arabian horse is one with a unique appearance. They bode a long mane that is soft to the touch, small feet, and a head that has a concave profile. They are generally bred in almost any color and vary to just about fifteen hands in measurement. They are well noted for their "jibbah" lump that sits in between their eyes. Arabian breeds have short backs, a small muzzle, thin legs that show their tendons clearly, and a very prominent wither.

Arabian Upkeep

Caring for an Arabian horse is minimal. They are very resilient creatures that can withstand the roughest of temperatures, making them an ideal horse breed to own. Even in extreme heat they function on a high level and are not prone to any major illnesses.

Arabian History

The history of the Arabian horse dates back a very long time as their native people have explained to experts. The breed can be referred to as "keheilan", which means 'pure blood' to the Arabs. They were very big to the Bedouin Tribe located in Arabia and were considered a compliment if you happened to be one of the lucky owners of this animal. Believe it or not, some researchers have actually documented that this breed has markings showing they were roaming around some four thousand or more years ago. The mare or stallions that were bred back in three thousand B.C. have even been linked to the infamous Arabian breed. The strong animals were greatly sought after during fights or raids for their amazing ability to travel through crowds uninjured and also for their uses to turn their feet so effectively during a fast pace escaping an altercation with a fellow Arab tribe. You can find these types of animals residing in areas such as Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, and Qatar. They are associated with being so remarkable looking over their sister breeds. Also, if you track the Thoroughbred horses, you will find that they were created by none other than the Arabian breeds. They still currently remain one of the most discussed and truly unique breeds of horses to date.
