As the oldest of all the light breeds and foundation stock of most, the Arabian is unique. This breed is different in that it does not exist as a result of selective breeding, where it was necessary to establish a registry prior to the development of the breed, but was a breed that was recognized for thousands of years and had been maintained and cherished in its purity over those years as much as is humanly possible. Also, Arabians' Bedouin heritage is evident in their ability to bond with humans, making them a lovely horse for family members of all ages.
Bedouin tribes of the desert selected and developed the Arabian steed with strength, courage and the stamina required for survival plus for speed and responsiveness, so it is understandable that Arabian horse shows offer such a huge range of classes. To list the class variety here would take many, many lines of type so let it suffice to say - imagine a class and it probably exists.
