WHY Arabian horse?
The Arabian or Arab horse is a breed of horse that originated on the Arabian Peninsula. With a distinctive head shape and high tail carriage, the Arabian is one of the most easily recognizable horse breeds in the world.
It is also one of the oldest breeds, with archaeological evidence of horses in the Middle East that resemble modern Arabians dating back 4,500 years.

and fascinating history
You may have heard before that Arabians have played a major role in the creation of practically every breed of horse on the planet. horoughbreds, Quarter Horses, Morgans and many more can thank the Arabian for their development.
and extremely personable
Many Arabians would prefer spending time around people than other horses. I believe this is due to their extreme intelligence and inquisitive nature. Being close to humans is something that dates WAY back with Arabians.
intelligent and sensitive
These qualities can actually be misunderstood, and can appear to be faults of the breed. Because of their heightened intelligence, they will not accept blatant force, or submit to demands. This is actually what makes working with Arabians so rewarding.
