Camels from Saudi Arabia

Throughout Saudi Arabia’s history, the camel has been represented in poetry, art and legends. Camels from Saudi Arabia bridge the gap between the past and present through a celebration of this magnificent creature.

Author Ghada Al-Muhanna Abalkhail is a Saudi researcher and archivist, as well as a contributing writer to Sekka, a source for arts, culture and opinion from the Arab world, where she has written about camels and their cultural connection to the land.

Today, Saudi Arabia’s enthusiasm for equestrian life has led to the country hosting the largest prized horse race in the world, in addition to numerous valuable and prestigious equine competitions and events. Horses from Saudi Arabia present the beauty of this beloved animal in its native landscape.
