Bedouin on Horseback

Today's picture shows a Bedouin on Horseback. The picture was taken in the Transjordan region of the Middle East. The picture was taken around 1920.


  1. Very regal looking. And a very ornate saddle blanket.

  2. I am so enjoying this desert nomads series. Thank you for this wonderful website. Jan

  3. I second both comments--love the series, and the saddle blanket is grand. From what we've seen so far, the Bedouin cared more about the accessories than their clothing as such. This is a fairly small horse, if its size compared to the man is any guide. Wonder if they were bred for the rigors of the desert.
