A little history……the Arabian horse is associated with the history of Riyadh. The breed was developed 3500 years ago and is very much adapted to desert conditions, is intelligent, fast and loyal with a gentle disposition. It is recorded that the prophet Mohammed was instrumental in spreading the Arabian influence and the Bedouins (Arab word 'Bedou' that means "desert dweller.") are credited with the pure breeding and keeping the purity of the Arabian breed.
My lessons began in the pen with how to mount, steering, how to gallop and slowing down the horse. Louis, who is 15 years old, was very attentive to every command. My next lesson will be on the mountainous trail. I get tingly thinking about it and look forward to the challenge.
All the best,
