Arabians are known for being the most beautiful breed of horse. Their defining characteristic is their dish shaped heads. They are smaller than most horses, and many verge on being classified as ponies (which are horses under 14 hands). Arabians are known by the horse community as being tightly-wound, but most are good, calm horses. Arabians are used in some long distance races, as they are not the fastest breed or horse but were bred to travel long distances without water. Now they are bred mostly for show and for sport. Arabians are shown in halter, western, native dress, English, and hunter. They are not usually used as rodeo horses or jumpers though. Arabians are a beautiful, elegant breed of horse that deserve recognition around the world.
