Dancing Horse


As many have enjoyed the photo of the mare and photographer, this was shot at the same exhibition. Egyptian dancing horses are usually stallions, the work taking a lot of muscle. They dance to the music of local musicians.

Yes, this is a wonderful shot. That horse is exquisite. So compact, gleaming, powerful. And the rider and the musicians...all that focused intensity! Thank you for posting this.

How long has this horse dancing been going on in Egypt? I bet it has an fascinating history.

This looks so strange. I've never heard of your dancing horses.
Would love to see it someday.
