No animal is perhaps so closely intertwined with the history, traditions, and heritage of a geographical area as horses are to the Arabian peninsula. Across facts and folklore, the horse has always had as prominent a place in the history of the region as the people who have lived there.
While there is sufficient archeological evidence to support the theory that the relationship is one that predates Islam, it is only after the advent of the religion that clear documentation about the care of horses emerged. In fact, an entire range of research and writing on horse health care were produced across what is now the MENA region.
