Much of recorded history includes the praises of Arabians, from rulers to nomads and prophets, all proclaim their admiration for the breed. The Arabian is the oldest purebred in the world and the foundation horse for many modern light breeds including the Thoroughbred, Quarter Horse, Morgan, and American Saddlebred. Written documentation from more than 3,000 years ago verifies that the Arabian horse is essentially the same today as it was then.
The first Arabian breeders were the tribesmen of Arabia – Bedouins – who valued the Arabian horse above all other possessions. Islamic prophet Mohammed, who considered the Arabian horse sacred, made the breed a cornerstone of his holy wars.
Christian crusaders were also impressed by the swift, tough, Arabian horse and imported several into England and France.
The first Arabian horse in the United States belonged to George Washington, who crossbred his Arabian stallion with cavalry mounts to strengthen the military.
Arabian horses were bred to perform under harsh desert conditions and keep going beyond the point of exhaustion. This has given the breed incredible stamina and courage.
Centuries of close interaction with people has given the Arabian an innate ability to bond with humans, as well as a friendly, loyal disposition, marked by a desire to please.
Arabians possess a long memory, quick comprehension, alert curiosity, resourcefulness, and sociability. The Arabian horse is also recognized as being intelligent and easy to train.
