Muslim Praying & ArabianMare

Photograph by Glenn Jacobs, National Geographic Your Shot

A desert sunrise in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, offers a radiant backdrop for this quiet moment captured by Glenn Jacobs. “In the photograph is the mare Egyptian Art with a kneeling Abdul Salam from Sudan,” the Your Shot community member writes. “The mare is wearing an authentic saddle that was gifted by the Royal Stables of Morocco … This image reflects, in my opinion, the significant power that the Arabian horse has to unite different cultures and [inspire us] to appreciate each other in a peaceful manner … [It] is bred worldwide and gets presented around the world in competition, where people of [different] nationalities, cultures, and backgrounds share the same passion.”
