“They (Arabs) are beautiful horses to look at and in motion the tails are carried high and gracefully. They have splendid dispositions; in fact, unless spoiled, they have no vice, are very intelligent quick, and alert, easy to teach, and very courageous. They are fond of their masters; in fact, they like to be handled and talked to and are very easily trained. They are, however, a hot-blooded horse. They will not stand abuse and they cannot be forced to do anything against their will. Like a dog, they can be shown or taught and they always seem pleased to obey, once they know what is wanted. They are aristocrats, but they “can take it.” They have been bred to hardship and do well in any climate or altitude. They need no different care from other horses and eat less”. Albert W Harris, from the U. S. Remount Magazine, “The Horse”. July – August, 1944.
