The Barb or Berber breed (Berber: ⴰⵢⵢⵉⵙ ⴰⵎⴰⵣⵉⵖ; Arabic: حصان بربري) is a northern African breed with great hardiness and stamina. There is a controversy whether Barb horses and Arabian horse share one common ancestor or if the Arabian horse is a predecessor of the Barb breed. When Barb horses were taken to Europe for the first time, they were mistaken for Arabian horses. However, interestingly, they did not share any physical characteristics. The reasons for this confusion could be their similar size with the Barbs and their Berber Muslims handlers whose native language was Arabic. The Barb generally possesses a fiery temperament and an atypical sport-horse conformation but nevertheless has influenced modern breeds, especially stocks like the Standardbred, Thoroughbred, and American Quarter Horse.
