Native Arabic Costume and Arabian Horse

The Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show at Westworld has a competition called the Arabian Mounted Native Costume.  When this event was founded 54 years ago, the event started with competitions of native Arabic costumes and Arabian horses.

This particular competition was a highlight.  The Arabian horses were spirited and energetic, there was hooting and hollering from the riders, the costumes were stunning, and the entire scene changed dramatically when these riders entered the Equidome.  

It was truly spectacular to see this particular competition.  I will show you  a few more photos of native costumes and Arabian horses in the days to come as they were very different, exciting and unique.

Thank you to Pak from Chorzow, Poland for the Kreativ Blogger award as it is fun and much appreciated recognition for my Scottsdale Daily Photo Web site. I am enjoying taking photos and sharing them with others and meeting so many interesting people around the world who share a love of photography and travel. Pak's website has great photos of winter and shows life in a place very different from the desert in Scottsdale. Click here to see Chorzow Daily Photo

The costume is great but the gear on the horse is stunning. The whole thing combined with the handsome horse makes a wonderful show.

Congratulations on the award.

Gorgeous shot and outfits too! (Is the word outfit also applied to the horse? :-) )

I've visited all the mosques you've mentioned on your comment, with the exception of the one in Ortakoy; all of them are fantastic!

Congratulations on your award!
