Overview

Renowned for their spirit, intelligence, and beauty, the Arabian horse is one of the oldest, purest, and most admired of all equine species. Collected together in this insightful volume are numerous historical and contemporary articles on the Asil Arab horse that address a range of topics, including the history and strict practices of Asil breeding programs around the world, as well as the horse’s relationship with the Bedouin people, their dromedaries, falcons, and saluqis. Adorning this compendium are 500 Orientalist paintings and contemporary photographs—most of them previously unpublished—that bring to life the majesty of the horses of the desert.
