Arabians are the oldest known breed of riding horses. Bred by the Bedouins in the Arab Peninsula, they are renowned for their high level of endurance over long distances. The dry, harsh weather conditions of the desert helped develop this breed's traits for speed and distance riding. The Arabian is a versatile horse and its ability to handle explosive bursts of energy and long, exhusting treks made it the horse of choice for such historical figures as: Geroge Washington, Napoleon, Alexander the Great, and Genghis Khan.
