Inside the Kasbah of the Udayas and at the entrance to the mausoleum of Mohammed V.
The title refers to the beautiful horse and indirectly to the mounted guard who could well be a Berber.
I don't know much about horse breeds but i would find it hard to believe that this horse is not a thoroughbred of the Arabian horse variety.
There are two mounted guards flanking the entrance, but there is a third individual of great importance hovering around. Please see the workshop addition which reveals this individual's importance.

He could be a Berber but he isn't wearing traditional Berber gear but that wouldn't do for the location would it? Well captured with an interesting mix in the background.

The details of the horse and rider are well captured with perfect exposure of the whites.

A fine capture of horse and rider practising their dressage. I like the point of view and the glimpse of the people in the background. Light, colours and sharpness are all very good.

Čista i vrlo lepa slika, Dado. Pomislio sam da bi horizontalna verzija bila efektnija, ali dok je koplje ovako visoko, ta ideja propada. Mozda ima i snimak kada je dasa spustio koplje. Pročitao sam i notu. Hvala Dado i puno pozdrava!

I wonder, how he keep this horse in the same place for a long time. Splendid animal, so gracious and the guard looks fine too. Funny the workshop photo and a note to it. Nicely show the details. Pleasant composition.

oh eh, not for the guard maybe, but it should be difficult for the horse to stand there for hours! the light was just beautiful, many nice colors and details in there. i also like the WS photo, showing the "shoveling" efforts.
