  1. Good Introduction to the Arabian Horse 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Dec 2015

    This just whets one's appetite. There are so many beautiful horses streaming by so fast. One realizes this is a much larger world, and one filled with enthusiastic aficionados from many lands.

    It was of course slanted toward the Saudis. Those interviewed seemed scripted, except the women. It was more interesting when those who had actual relationships with their horses were interviewed (mostly non-Arabs and women).

    It was fascinating to see that though Saudi women are not allow to drive cars, they may participate in riding competitions including endurance riding. That is a step forward!

    This DVD basically shows how the Arabian Horse was preserved by the West, and has now returned to its homeland owing to the revitalized oil-based economy. But one wonders if the Arabian will ever return to being an integral part of the family as of yore.

    These horses deserve the best, not just to be show-pieces, but to be challenged and grow. Perhaps all the competition will do just that.
