Arabs are very versatile horses and do a number of things today.
Some features that distinguish Arabs are:
- Fine head
- small muzzle
- Large eyes
- Broad forehead
- wide nostrils
- arched, graceful neck
- high-set tail
- level/flat croup
- Often a dished face
Arabs stand about 14.1 to 15.1 hands high. They are still classified as horses. Their bone structure is slightly different having 5 lumber vertebrae and 17 pairs of ribs rather than the normal 6 and 18. They are hot blooded horses and are a light saddle horses.
