This time we take a side trip to showcase contemporary horseback riders and Egyptian horses at a small horse show in rural Egypt. True native costume classes.

Stunning photos testify to the pleasures of horsemanship. Sonny Stengle and his wife, from Germany, were visiting Egypt in February when they happened upon a local horse show. Sonny posted a note and his photos on the Tour Egypt bulletin board. He is sharing them here and inviting everyone to visit the board. (You could post him a message...) Tour Egypt is a huge website all about Egypt, past and present. Egyptomaniacs from all over the world frequent the discussions and become friends.

A Horseshow in Egypt, this month's article, shares Sonny Stengle's photos. Next month I will resume discussion of the ancient Egytian horse with photos fresh from Egypt.
