Last month I visited my friend Emma, who is running Ride Egypt company in Hurghada, Luxor and Cairo. And i had another chance to ride beautiful 4-year-old mare Zahra. But this time i was smart enough to have the GoPro camera with Dome Port with me.
I still cannot select the best picture from that 30-minutes-golden-hour photo-shoot so I just leave all my favorite ones in the gallery :-)

The city of Troy is the city in the modern Anatolia region of Turkey. By the way, some historians suggest that Trojan horse wasn’t really a wooden sculpture of a horse (replica of which you can now see in the Canakkale Waterfront) but rather a ship called “hippos” because of its front being decorated with a horse’s head.
It wasn’t so easy to guess, even though the name of the country is a clear indicator. St. George, usually depicted as mounting a white horse, is the traditional patron saint of Georgia.
I have been a citizen of Kazakhstan for half of my life, but don’t ask me to teach you the ancient art of horse sweat taste testing. :-)
The oldest known manual about horse medicine consists of 184 handwritten pages and was written in the Armenian Kingdom of Cilicia between 1295 and 1298.
To my taste, the 25 Iraqi dinar note is one of the most beautiful banknotes in the world. However, despite collecting coins and banknotes depicting horses for over 10 years, I still don’t have the 25 Iraqi dinar note.

Andalusians, a.k.a. Pura Raza Espanola (PRE), were bred by Carthusian monks starting in the 13th century. Do you know any interesting stories of how other horse breeds were created?
Fjord is a picture-perfect breed of horses that originated in Norway. Currently, there are between 6000 and 7000 Fjord horses in the world. Have you ever ridden one?
And this country is Russia. On this day, all the horses have a “day off.” They are fed full, bathed in nearby rivers, and decorated with colorful ribbons. Then the well-dressed horses are led to churches, where they are blessed by holy water.
By the way, my surname (Frolova) is the derivate from one of these Saints names :-) What a coincidence :-)
