The popularization of Arabians in the U.S. began with 45 Arabian horses that came from the Arabian desert to the Chicago World's Fair in 1893. Included in that group was the mare *Nejdme (left) that became the first Arabian horse registered in the United States in 1908. #ArabianHorses #History #ArabianHorseAssociation
