Check this good article on the CMK website. It was compiled by W.R. Brown and published in the Arabian Stub Book [volume 2] in 1918.

  1. Not much to argue with there! 🙂
    Noteworthy that the trot is so dismissed, I have always considered canter THE Arab gait….. yet in in hand showing it is all about the trot, I wish they would all start showing a real trotting breed such as Welsh Cobs and leave Arabs to be ridden !!!:)

  2. I was trying to track down the sources of the written breed standard, and that was as early as Michael could find in the American sources. He did the scanning and I cleaned up after the OCR —

  3. Yes, I believe the 1918 stud book has the earliest official breed standard in the American sources. Homer Davenport’s book and articles include earlier descriptions of the Arabian, but I’m assuming that’s not what you mean by a written breed standard.
