Please help us learn more about Lebanon.

What area/region of the country are you in? I like to relate people's location to a map. It helps me make better sense of everything.

I live in the US state of Ohio in the far western side of it. Here's some pics I took of the countryside my friends and I ride in.

Dear all.
Since you liked the horses and the area, here are some more photos.
You can see the countryside nature. My small farm is surrounded by hills with trees (mostly oak) and you can see olive trees in some of the photos.
Wild animals that live here include wolves, hyenas, foxes, wild pigs... It is a little dangerous for the horse to spend the night out esp. in winter.
The village is called Rachaya. It's a beautiful village with old brick topped houses.
Just a few kilometers from the village is Hermon Mountain. It is mentioned in the Bible and you can see at least 3 counties from its summit. (Lebanon, Syria, Israel/Palestine) It's covered with snow for 10 months a year and sometimes all year round.
Rachaya is in the East of Lebanon. Here is a link from wikimapia and you can zoom out too make sense of the location. The center of the photo is exactly where I took the photos of the horses.

I hope you like them. I'll soon make a post that provides more photos about my area. The weather now is stormy and I won't be able to take photos before it gets better.

That is such a pretty saddle! Is it typical for Lebanon or fancy for special occasions?

Well this is the most popular type of saddles here. Many local riders prefer it more than Western saddles. I don't.It is mostly used in weddings but can be used for all kinds of riding including trail riding...
it's not expensive, you can get a good one for only 200 USD. This might be one of the reasons why it is so popular.

Very interesting! The gray is gorgeous. What is his name?
Here are some pictures from my area. We have open areas, but also a lot of wooded areas.
My horses are arabians as well. I am quite partial to them.

Beautiful saddle. It looks very comfortable, too. The area you live looks pretty rocky. I used to live in Colorado (near the center of the country) in the high rocky mountains. I would guide trailriders and hunters into the mountains.

This horse was a good show horse who also worked in the mountains between shows.

I now live in North Carolina (on the east coast) And mostly jump horses and do dressage.

I love your photos and will NEVER get tired of looking at your horses and countryside
