Native Arabian Red, Black and Gold Costume

Here is a close-up of the magnificent native Arabian costumes worn during this competition at the Scottsdale Arabian Horse show at Westworld.

This particular horse and rider won the Arabian Mounted Native costume competition. They were the most spirited pair in the arena. They never stopped galloping, just like they would have been doing across the sands in Arabia, which is the point of this particular competition.

Oh wow, that costume is so fantastic! Thanks for both the long shot and the detailed shot. The beadwork and embroidery is magnificent!

Gorgeous! And beautifully cropped, too.

I grew up in Utah and one of the things I miss about living in the East is the absence of Native American and Hispanic culture. Granted, we have a lot of native peoples and a large Hispanic/Spanish/Latino population, but I never see the colors and culture here like I did in the West.

How beautiful. I had a friend who used to ride in parades where she was judged on the authenticity of her costume. I think she was dressed as a Kioawa (?) woman
