"Horse Under Duress"
Jerusalem, Israel, 2021
***

While strolling in a Jerusalem park, I was startled by a young man riding his horse hard, galloping past me.  While I have great respect for many aspects of Arab culture, too often I've seen young Arab men lack compassion for their animals.  There was no reason for this man to be punishing his horse as he was.
