Alabama Horse Talk explored the world of Arabian horses in Alabama recently. Arabians are one of the oldest breeds of horses dating back almost 5,000 years. These amazing animals are known for their endurance, friendliness, and incredible beauty.
With a long history of performing in many disciplines from originally being a war horse to racing to showing and many others, Arabians are a very versatile breed. Arabian bloodlines are also the base of most all small to medium breed of horse today. They have had an enormous influence in the horse world over the years and continue to this day.
Lovers of Arabians have their favorite activities with their horses, but one of the most beloved events horse folks participate in is the Native Costume class at Arabian Horse shows where the owner and the horse are dressed in the typical flowing native costume and galloping around the arena. It’s a truly amazing and exciting sight to behold!
One of our own Alabama horse treasures comes in the form of an 80-year old man. A lover of Arabians and trail riding, Bill Dinan has been an asset to both the Alabama Arabian Horse Association and the Outback Trail Riders over the past 30 years or so. I had the pleasure of interviewing this inspiring rider at his home for Alabama Horse Talk.
