The head of Arabian horses is generally concave, with a slight rounded shape between the ears and the nose. We can find the occasional Arabian horse with a straight profile, but its head should then be short and shaped like a wedge, with a small mouth.

The ears are usually inclined, and tend to be smaller in males than in mares. The eyes of an Arabian horse are generally wide, large and bright, of a clearly dark color, with a predominance over the white of the eyes.

The nostrils appear predominant and wide.

The tail of an Arabian horse is extremely characteristic since its appearance is arched and with an elevation from the root of it. If the horse is in motion it can even curl up on the animal's back.

Some specialists consider that this characteristic characteristic of Arabian horses is due to the fact that their spine is one or two vertebrae shorter than in other breeds. Whether true or not, it gives you a lot of distinction and elegance.

The body of the Arab is generally smaller and lower than most other races. However, all its anatomy seems, somehow to have a 'square' shape.

The rise of the Arabs is usually between 1.43 and 1.53 meters approximately. Of course, there can always be specimens above and below these standards.

Movement

The passage of an Arabian horse is very loose and elegant. So much so that it gives the impression of ‘floating’ instead of jogging. The gallop is a very natural step for Arabian horses because of their speed, agility and brio.

Arabic is usually very social and accepts human treatment well. It is a race that has lived with humans for millennia and who depended on to survive in the desert, often sleeping with their owners. So your character towards people will be of total curiosity and intelligence in the deal.
