Oumar: The Horseman of Tombouctou
We are fortunate to have been introduced to Oumar in-Dahoye el Arawanie who is a horseman of note, through Shindouk. It is unusual to find a horseman with Oumars talents among the Tuareg in the Tombouctou region, as the camel is the usual Tuareg preference. Ourmar has a passion for horses shared by serious horsemen world wide.
