While the stallions all seemed so strongly bonded to one another, the mares up on the plateau above, were far more independent ‌ haughty, even. And when the mares returned to their paddocks after their photo shoots, we heard a chorus of 100 stallions neighing. Here, as at Al Roudha, the aim is to preserve the strains of the original war mares of the traditional Bahraini strains. Horses are bred for pleasure and pride, and to keep alive family traditions; not for commercial purposes.
