Arab Horses in Oman looking splendid before an event.

One of my favourite photos is this of Arab Horses in Oman decked out in traditional silver.  Marco Polo wrote about them in his book ‘The Travels’ –  “and the merchants take a great number of Arab horses to that market (of India from Al Balid)”
