[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Sardinian Anglo-Arab horse is a breed reared in Sardinia for about a century. Arises from the intersection of indigenous horses Sardinian smaller (Sarcidano Horse, Horse of the Jar) with Arabian horses in turn crossed with thoroughbred English [1]. A major contribution to the improvement of the breed you must deposit the establishment in 1874 of the Royal stallions of Sardinia.
The race was created for the needs of the weapon of the cavalry of the Italian Army. The army began to cross the horses indigenous Sardinian smaller with Arabian stallions imported from the Syrian desert. These derivatives Arabs resulted in stature but still insufficient and was then introduced the English thoroughbred, producing horses in stature adequate for the uses of cavalry. The content of Arab blood must be at least 25% in the modern Sardinian Anglo-Arab. The military conducted many tests of speed and endurance when this race gave amazing results, being able to cover a distance of 100 km per day for a couple of days with adequate preparation of the horse and with reasonable breaks between one stage and the 'other.
The Sardinian Anglo-Arab horse is used mainly for racing speed and jumping, but also for cross country and horse riding. In addition, the majority of horses that run the Palio di Siena Sardinian Anglo-Arab. Finally, the Carabinieri Regiment Horse takes several examples of this breed, so restoring it to its original task of mounts for the cavalry military

A lovely colorful presentation with amazing light and exposure, GF!
The light and exposure are well handled, and POV is excellent.
Good sharpness and clarity too.
Nice work!


If this horse can talk, he'll probably tell you how embarrassing it is to wear all those ornaments, but then he might like it. Nicely captured with good lighting and dof with nice details. Love the colors. Well done, tfs.
