The Egyptian horse is no longer an individual breed/race as it once was; the short distance between Arabia and the Nile led of course to significant Arabization of the indigenous horses in Egypt, henceforth the Egyptian horses today for most part do not differ from the rougher Arabians bred for example in southern Arabia. Today in most of the Egyptian stud farms is bred very exclusive and refined Arabian material, which stallions are used to refine the domestic horses. To the refinement of the Egyptian horses were also used the English thoroughbreds which were used mainly to give more variety in the exterior.
