It is a must-have for all Arabian horse lovers.
The author is a super expert in arabian horses and the content of the book brings the historical basis of the breed as well as the origin of main bloodlines (straight Egyptian).
The text is very well written.
It's a pity doesn't have a more current edition.
Ms Forbis naturally believes her line of horses, based on *Ansata Ibn Halima, a horse she imported, are the finest and there is a bit of bias in this direction. It is hard to argue with her knowledge and she has bred and exported these horses worldwide, including back to the desert, so she is certainly successful and true to her original vision. However, she covers all the strains in considerable detail and there is a lot of knowledge to gain from this book. I read my copy dozens of time & still refer to it often. The classic arabian horse is a worthwhile addition to any horsemans library.
