HISTORY OF THE ARABIAN(requested by Hardwin)
With a domesticated history dating back several millennia, the Arabian horse is considered the eldest and most important of all modern equine breeds. The origin of the breed can be traced to the arid, desert region of the Nejd in the Arabian Peninsula, a harsh environment in which the basics of life, food and water, are scarce, and the existence of both man and beast is challenged in the extreme. Within this unforgiving terrain, the nomadic tribes of the Arabic Bedouin have survived for millennia. Essential to their survival has been their relationship with the Arabian horse, a creature most prized above all earthly possessions. The oral tradition of the Bedouin claims the Arabian horse was first captured thousands of years before the birth of Christ from among the wild horses of the Nejd and tamed for utility under saddle. This was the beginning of perhaps the most important and most intimate coexistence between man and any other member of the animal kingdom, one that would drive both progress and civilization and forever change the fortunes of both species.

Thanks everyone for the helpful info on how to get Sierra backing straight. I always tend to make her back up really fast, but once I slowed down and rewarded her for each step she took, she started doing a lot better.

Question of the day: What is your favorite breed of horse and why?
I dont really have a favorite breed, I pretty much like any horses, but of course I have a soft spot for Welsh Mountain ponies.
