This image show an Arab colt, named Count Orlando, who won first prize in one of the categories of this horse show. Arab horses originally roamed wild in the deserts of the Middle East, where they were tamed by nomadic tribes people. All English thoroughbred racehorses are descended from three Arab stallions imported into Britain in the early 1700s. The mixture of breeds is said to combine stamina with intelligence.
