'Asil' is the Arabic word signifying purity, nobility and authenticity.  It is a word that is used to describe the purebred Arabian horse.

Originally bred by the nomadic Arab Bedouin tribes as a horse to be used in battle, the pure-blooded Arabian evolved over hundreds of years into a creature of beauty and strength.  The care of the Bedu for their horses, coupled with the harsh conditions of the environment produced an animal of distinctive intelligence and sensitivity, whose power and stamina enabled it to endure the harshest conditions and demands.

War and religious conquests played an important role in ensuring the global influence of the Arabian.  It can now be found in the bloodlines of nearly every modern, light horse breed.

While the importance and usefulness of the horse gradually declined with the advent of mechanical means of transportation, the Arabian horse remains a symbol of pride and of historical and cultural importance for the Arabs of the Middle East.
