Editorial Reviews

Review

Brilliant! Galloping out of remotest antiquity, prancing majestically at mankind s most fabled royal courts, in an awe-inspiring destiny siring all the lineages of racing s thoroughbreds as well as the mounts for Napolean s lancers and Gustavus Adolphus Polish-Arabs, the Gift from the Desert is the gorgeously enchanting star of this wondrous film. At this moment when tragic images bombard us nightly from the Middle East, one of our world s most expert film-makers has launched a star into our sadly darkened sky. Gift from the Desert chronicles an all too rare interaction with the Arab world whereby 19/20th century U.S. breeders helped to save this splendid breed. For joy as well as useful wisdom come and view this beautiful film ! --Dr. Carney Gavin, Historian

This is a fascinating film viewers are sure to enjoy again and again! It tells the remarkable story of the Arabian horse from its ancient desert beginnings to its place in the world today. The most beautiful equine athlete captivates with its grace and stamina. --Arabian Horse Association

A wonderful film! A fascinating and entertaining story whether you are a horse expert or novice. --Karen House, Pulitzer Prize Winner, former Publisher Wall Street Journal

"The journey is a wonderful story all by itself, and I won t spoil it here! I will say that oil production and consumption play a significant role, but with a strange twist that I had never stumbled across before. Like most kids I really had no interest in history at school. It seemed a dry and boring subject. I was wrong, history is a fabulous and rich textured subject. The Arabian Horse: The Gift From The Desert is a fine example of why history is so important, this is a great documentary. You do not need to be a horse lover to enjoy it. The clips of vintage film are wonderful, and the new footage added is quite frankly stunning." --BloggerNews.net

I thought I knew everything about horses but this DVD on the Arabian gave me some new information. I've always had quarter horses and seen my share of Arabians but I never knew that the Arabian gave so much to the horse world.

WHAT A GREAT DVD THIS IS!
The history of the Arabian horse....names that I remember from the time I researched the Arabian Horse before I purchased the "best horse I ever owned!" I purchased my Arabian Raffsein at 3 months old, and had him until he was 34 years old! Names in the video such as Homer Davenport, and Judith Forbis brought to mind when these horses were brought to the US from overseas! Current interviews with Arabian peoples made this film even better. I will have some friends over to view this DVD again...one viewing is simply enough! I loved it!

Eye candy for the Arabian horse lover... presented from a different viewpoint, that of the desert bedouin and more modern Arab (Saudi in particular). Plenty of action and motion and (wonder of wonders) not done in sloooooow motion like so many western videos. Would have loved more identifications of the horses used, but those were not needed to make this a visual and informational success. I hope there will be more in the same vein.
