When I had horses I steered away from Arabians because they are high-strung. They look good and show well but for utility I wouldn't risk it.<quoted text> I don't care about the ad. But give that guy an pure-breed Arabian mare and he'll win.
Besides, I've been through Egypt and Jordan and I've been to Lebanon and you don't see many horses. Donkeys are still everywhere (workhorses) but the most prevalent working animal on the peninsula and northern Africa is the camel. No offense intended but when I picture Arabs in the desert it's aboard a camel.
