Arabian Horses

The Arabian horse is the oldest pure breed of any horse in the world and the foundation horse whose blood runs through nearly every light horse breed known today. Refined in physical appearance with a large dished face, expressive, wide-set eyes, an arched neck, high tail carriage and an elegant way of moving, the Arabian horse is a picture of beauty and versatility. The breed was borne of the desert and raised by Bedouin tribes. Loyalty, a kind spirit and endurance are bred into these horses' very souls.



Whether you enjoy riding, showing, endurance or simply having a family-friendly horse at home, the Arabian horse is the ideal choice. AHA provides a variety of programs and activities for becoming involved with Arabian horses. Our T.A.I.L., Learn to Ride and Discovery Farm programs allow equine enthusiasts of every age to enjoy the touch and feel of the Arabian horse. If competition riding is your passion, AHA offers incentive and prize money programs, achievement awards and more to enhance your show ring or endurance riding experience. Youth and family programs make it easy for people of all ages to be actively involved. When you become a member of AHA, the possibilities are endless.
