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.
