Mounted Police Patrol Souq Waqif in Doha, Qatar

A fairly common sight in the Souq Waqif in Doha, the Qatari capital’s largest old style market, is that of the mounted police on patrol riding pearly white Arabian horses. Don’t let this serious look turn you off: they’re mild-mannered and proud, friendly, and do smile quite a bit too.
