The Arabian or Arab horse (Arabic: الحصان العربي [ ħisˤaːn ʕarabiː], DMG ḥiṣān ʿarabī) 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.
Do all horses come from Arabian horses?
But it may come as a surprise that nearly all horses alive today descend from stallions that were brought into Europe from the Arabian Peninsula and Central Asia over the past 700 years, according to new genetic research.
At what age can you ride an Arabian horse?
Arabians are well known to mature physically slower than other breeds. It’s one reason the Arabian racing industry does not allow them to race until 3 years of age.
