Horse Dances Around Like A Graceful Ballerina

She loves to dance. This gorgeous black Arabian horse is light on her hooves and loves to be the center of attention as she prances through the arena. If we didn't know any better, it would look as though this beautiful young female is aspiring to become a ballerina!
Arabian horses are known around the world for their showmanship and graceful nature. In fact, they are one of the oldest and most recognizable horse breeds on earth, dating back over 4,500 years! Beside their obvious physical beauty, Arabian horses are also glorified for their ability to learn quickly, their even temperament and cooperative nature with human companions!
It's said that the iconic breed first reached mainland America in 1540, when Mexican conquistadors, settlers and missionaries traveled through the country. It's a little-known fact that the horses who escaped and were stolen from these men by the native people eventually became the modern-day Mustang. Even George Washington's favorite mount during the Revolutionary War was a gray half-Arabian horse that he fondly called "Blueskin." Arabian horses have left their mark on American history and we wouldn't want it any other way!
