“People want to know, ‘Why Arabians?’ Because very few breeds receive love from a human better than an Arabian. I have so many images of people connecting with their horses, and I want to share them with Arabian Horse World ’s readers, so they can see what I see. Sometimes we forget that this is more than a business. The truth is, we have all been touched by these sensitive horses in one way or another. It’s beautiful and amazing!” — April Visel

magical in the sound of horses eating. It‘s tran quility and ha p piness. T his sets u p a mood for my entire day.”
