Equus ferus caballus
The Arabian horse is one of the oldest horse breeds with recorded bloodlines and guarded purity. It was domesticated around 4,000 BCE, then honed by the Bedouins, desert, and human warfare. It is prized for its beauty, gentle character, intelligence, courage, strength, speed, and endurance. It played important roles throughout Arab history, in Bedouins’ daily lives, and in equestrian competitions. The Arabian horse has a compact body, arched neck, broad chest, broad forehead, large eyes, small concave muzzle, and large nostrils. All the other light horse breeds descend from the Arabian horse. Colors include gray, chestnut, and occasionally black. White Arabians turn white as they age (like humans). Arabians are never spotted. The skin under their coat is always black.
Very energetic. Requires running space.
