History [ edit ]

The Arab is a very popular horse, appreciated by its beauty and known by its inflammable temperament.

Although it is established that the Arab crossed deserts with Bedouins and that it later spread to the North of Africa, some doubts remain about the origins of this horse. Some defend that the breed was originally from the Arabian Peninsula, home of Bedouins, others say that its starting point was in fact the Fertile Crescent region.
Nevertheless, the Bedouins bred the Arab to endure deserts, poor meals and battles. The Arab became powerful, fast, courageous and resistant.

After centuries of popularity that crossed emperies and civilizations, the end of the Turkish Empire almost dictated the end of the breed. It was the interest of Europeans breeders that allowed this breed to flourish once again.  

Nowadays, the Arab is a breed always in expansion, bred and appreciated all over the world.
