A Purebred Arabian will always fit the bill of a stylish and showy mount, however they also have so much more to offer. (For Instance: Where do you think the American Quarter Horse and Thoroughbreds got their speed?)
"During the early 19th Century ruling families of Egypt gathered the finest horses from the deserts of Arabia and bought them to the land of the pyramids. This extraordinary collection unrivalled since the time of King Solomon became the foundation for the modern day Egyptian Arabian Horse."
One of my two favourite Arabian horse colours - The Black. My other favourite is the Dark Bay Arabian. As for favourite horses in general, I love Paint Horses too, but the Draft Horses are my absolute favourites - with the Clydesdale and Belgians having a special place in my heart.
