Hubs took some photos of me posing for some photographers this last weekend. Photoception?
I really hated Inception. I kind of like how it’s name is so sullied by now being associated to any event where something occurs within itself.
Corset is Mystic City. =)
Heels are Bordello, AND FUCKING HELL TO WEAR.

His Highness Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, the Father Emir established Al Shaqab in 1992 to enjoy his passion for Arabian horses, to honor the courageous war horses ridden by victorious Qatari knights of the past, and to assure the Arabian horse would continue to play a leading role in the cultural heritage of the Qatari people. His vision was to increase the number of superior Arabian horses in Qatar, improve the quality of Arabian show horses, and to preserve the finest Arabian horse families of the past. His greatest hope was for Al Shaqab to make a valuable contribution to the Arabian breed, not only in Qatar, but around the world. Unquestionably, this has been accomplished.
And yes, the last picture is their riding arena.

Beautiful photos on their website, http://www.alshaqab.com/
Also note the lack of women and girls in any of the photos… Interesting to think about how few men you see at barns in the US (I’m talking about low-level/amateur riders). Even in Europe more men ride.
