INTERESTING FACTS:

 The Arabian horse has:

(1) 17 ribs (other horses have 18)

(2) five lumbar vertebrae(other horses have 6)

(3) 16 tail vertebrae (other horses have 18)

 

  The oldest and purest of all horse breeds, the Arabian horse is considered by many people to be the most beautiful equine animal in the world. With it's refined head and dished profile, expressive eyes, high spirits and unique floating action, it is certainly one of the most exquisite of creatures. More than any other horse, it is the Arabian which has influenced the development of equine breeds throughout the world.

      This Arabian influence was initiated in the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries AD when the followers of Islam spread across North Africa and to Spain. The Arabians they took with them were greatly superior to the native stock of other lands and so began a process of upgrading through the introduction of Arabian blood,Wednesday October 23, 2002 that was to go on for many centuries and still goes on today. Pure-bred Arabians are now bred throughout the world. As well as appearing in the show ring, they are particularly suited to the sport of endurance riding. In recent times, there has been a resurgence of interest in Arabian racing.
