Muscat: Sixty one-year-old Henry Dallal has published a photo book featuring the horses of the Royal Cavalry of Oman.
The British photographer, who developed an interest in photography from an early age, took eight years to compile the stunning 352-page omnibus, which features more than 20 breeds of horses, some of which are thoroughbred Arabian stallions, while others have been sourced from all over the world.
“It was published with the support of The European Azerbaijan Society and the Azerbaijan Equestrian Federation, who between them had ensured that a contingent of rare Karabakh horses had played a central part in the show.”
