The Arabian horses were in Menton recently for the prestigious Mediterranean & Arab Countries Arabian Horse Championship show.
I think this lady loves Arabians, don't you?
The horses have Vaseline put around their eyes and on their muzzles to apparently emphasize their features.
In the smaller photo - taken at dusk - you see where the show is held (the stade) in relation to the beautiful Old Town of Menton. The horse you see is in the holding ring.
