Arabian Horse

One of the most recognizable breeds of horse in the world, the Arabian horse originated on the Arabian peninsula more than 4,500 years ago. Over the course of time, the Arabian has spread throughout the world via trade and war, and its genetic code is found in almost every modern breed of riding horse. Developed by desert nomads, Arabians were often kept inside tents, which gave the breed a natural affinity for humans. The breed is intelligent, strong, fast, and always eager to please its owner.
