    Equus magazine is running a series of articles by Dr. Deb Bennett about where in the world the main horse “types” evolved. I don’t always have time to read them when they arrive, so I read three issues in one sitting a couple of nights ago. One issue discussed Arabians because they are so important to the development of nearly all modern riding breeds. She talks about the various countries of origin (the breed originated with nomadic Bedouins), and how their “look” has changed over time. Fascinating, and I don’t even own an Arabian. I can’t wait to read about other breeds!
