This portrait is of the handsome arabian stallion Zahbaad Zahir, adorned in beautiful tack created especially for him by Gina Dupree.  Many of the most celebrated Arabian horses in the world proudly wear her stunning creations. To see her work or to commission Gina to create a one of a kind art piece for your horse, please visit her website:
