The almost spiritual relationship between the Arab and his horse and the long-standing fascination the world over for this purest-bred of all animals who serve humanity lie at the core of this work. Tracing the history of the Arabian (or Arab) horse from before the time of King Solomon to the present day, the text by Peter Upton - author, artist and internationally recognized expert on the subject - explains the true origins of the breed and its role in Arab history. At the heart of the book are photographs of the horses themselves, arranged by geographical area. A comprehensive list of Arab horse organizations, registries and societies and a glossary of Arabic terms are included.
