Al-Asil – The Pure-bred Arabian, is a must-have treat for all Arabian horse enthusiasts. The author has delved into the sea of ancient Arabic texts and retrieved some of its treasures which have been translated into English for the very first time! He gives the reader a tantalising taste of some of these works by Arab scholars dating back a thousand years! He highlights the intimate relationship between the Bedouin and their prized steeds, as well as detailing the history of the breed from the days of Pegasus till the present day. He has, in a completely unprecedented manner, managed to synthesize these contributions with contemporary research on the Arabian horse. By recollecting his personal travels to various Arabian studs around the world, he enriches the theory with real life accounts of meetings with royalties as well as the masters of equitation – the desert Bedouin!
