[ INDEX ] Equine Type: Horse Breed: Barb-Arab   [ PREV ] [ NEXT ]
The Barb-Arab is a cross between an Arabian and a North-African Barb (known as 'Barb', not a Spanish Barb.)

The introduction of Arabian horses to the Burberry Coastline was a game-changer for the Barb, and not for good. Barb-Arabs proved to be faster and more athletic than the authentic Barb, and many Barbs were crossed with Arabians rather than with other Barbs. As a result, the numbers of the Barb horses began to dwindle, and today this ancient breed is considered rare.

The Barb-Arab, on the other hand, exists in large numbers in North Africa, where it is used for pulling carts, tourism riding, and fantasias, events where a group of warriors in traditional clothing riding horses, mostly Barbs or Barb-Arabs, equipped with decorated tack, and charge with their horses in a straight line, at the end of which they shoot the air.
