“For me, this is one of the many wonderful things about Arabian horses. Yes, they are beautiful to look at, but they are so much more than that. Not just pretty pictures, but living history books whose pages contain stories of everything you can imagine: war and adventure, love and loss, excitement and heartbreak. In the past, the Arabian was the mount of warriors and the companion of kings. As alluring as the bright lights of the show ring and the thrill of winning may be, let us never forget the proud heritage of which we, today, are the guardians.” 

— Betty Finke, “Moments in Time,” page 150
