Passage: Art of Riding

Updated: May 13, 2018

01 May - 14 May 2018

Passage: Art of Riding - is an Exhibition of artistic collection that features artworks with the subject of horses as a part of Arabic culture at its very root. The blend of colors and techniques is represented by the fusion of the Emirate environment and horses. These two concepts are woven together in these art pieces to represent the struggle of Emirate people in gulf desert to be strong, enduring and swift, like the horse.

The Horse in Arabic culture is a symbol of Power, Grace & Sensitivity.

The Arabian developed in a desert climate and was prized by the nomadic Bedouin people, often being brought inside the family tent for shelter and protection from theft. Selective breeding for traits including an ability to form a cooperative relationship with humans created a horse breed that is good-natured, quick to learn, and willing to lease. The Arabian also developed the high spirit and alertness needed in a horse used for raiding and war. This combination of willingness and sensitivity requires modern Arabian horse owners to handle their horses with competence and respect.
