The Arab Horse, Paperback


As one of the oldest breeds, the Arabian is extraordinarily prepotent; it has had a profound influence on light-horse breeding throughout the world. Admired for its beauty and intelligence, centuries of life in the harsh environment of the Arabian Desert also endowed it with the qualities of toughness, endurance and courage, whilst its close association with man resulted in its noble ability to form strong attachments to humans. The Arabian has all the qualities of a perfect riding horse and its performance in a wide variety of activities is proof of its versatility. The book's outstanding photographs not only complement the text but also demonstrate this trait of versatility by showing the Arabian at work in every equestrian discipline as well as its natural desert habitat and depicted in art.
