“Ali’s years watching horses in the wild taught him how to talk to them in a language that he understands – body language. It works both ways. He can also tell how the horse feels.”

This is a line from a Youtube video by 500v that talks about the beauty of Arabian horses and how a gifted trainer (Ali Al Ameri) was able to communicate with them in such a beautiful way. If Cesar Milan is known for being the Dog Whisperer, Ali can be considered as a Horse Whisperer.

The Arabian horse or Arab horse is a breed that came from the Arabian Peninsula. It’s one of the most widely recognized breeds in the world. They are also one of the most popular breeds and are often used in varied fields of equestrian activity.

They usually have refined, wedge-shaped heads, a broad forehead, large nostrils, and small muzzles. Many Arabian horses also have a slight forehead bulge between their eyes. This feature adds an additional sinus capacity, which is believed to have helped them adapt very well to their native dry desert climate.

For hundreds of years, Arabian horses lived closely with their human counterparts in the desert. Sometimes, some Bedouin people keep their prized animals in their tents. This makes the horse become closer to children and other members of the family. They are very loyal, sensitive and smart. They can easily learn techniques and can communicate well with their owners. However, their intelligent nature will also enable them to learn bad habits. They can also become nervous and anxious when they are subjected to extreme abuse.

When it comes to training Arab horses, it is important that you have to speak their language. It’s something that we sometimes lack. Most of the time, we want our animals to understand us, but it should be the other way around. We have to learn their language, because that’s the only way we can communicate with them and help them learn how to trust us.

Take a look at this beautiful story of an amazing trainer that does his “magic” with horses!
