With its deep chest and powerful breathing, its long nostrils, the width of its sides and kidneys, its iron limbs and its severe education in states of fatigue or extreme outdoor conditions, the Arabian horse is an exquisite specimen that has resisted the passage of time, thanks in part to its qualities and characteristics.
When you see anywhere in the world a horse that is distinguished by its fierceness, lightness, elegance and extraordinary qualities, you can be sure that it has Arab blood in its veins, whether it comes from its mother, father or ancestors.
The most outstanding aspect of its personality is its charisma and good character. It is very skilled, standing out for its speed, physical capacity, which turns this spectacular horse into an active, fiery and strong animal.
It is one of the oldest breeds in the entire world. Its enormous strength and speed were demonstrated in its origins, approximately 4,500 years ago by enduring the extreme conditions of the desert, qualities that it continues to demonstrate in the different sports in which it participates.
Its behavior is determined by its great taste for human company. Its development, linked to the domestication and care of man, has influenced its sensitivity to the love provided by its owners. It is friendly with its companion, and it is excellent with children.
Thanks to its speed, and its elegance while walking, the appearances of the Arabian horse in history show it as an animal almost capable of flying without having wings.
The unique origin of these horses has settled the ground for the existence of several legends related to its emergence. Among them, one of the most outstanding is the one that ensures that the Arabian horse is really a race created by Allah thanks to a handful of desert sand and wind.
This horse differs from all other horses by its short stature, but also by its morphology. It has 17 pairs of ribs, 5 lumbar bones, and 16 caudal vertebrae. Its very special morphology (the other horses have 18 ribs, 6 lumbar bones, and 7 vertebrae) means that the animal can carry heavier riders than other races. As an important information, we can not ignore that having one vertebra less than any other horse gives it the possibility of raising its tail up which makes it has a stately, distinguished and elegant style.
Arabian horses perform very well in speed competitions. They also do very well in raid events where horses go through very long distances that vary between 40 and 160 km. For these resistance tests, the Arab race is the preferred one as they manage to travel great distances at average speeds of up to 27km / h.
If the Arabian horse undergoes a proper training, it can reach records. These animals, in optimal conditions, can reach speeds of approximately 50 km/h, which gives the rider a unique sense of freedom and union with the horse while riding it, and perceiving each stride and breathing of the animal as if it were his own.
