With annual seasons ranging from hot to very hot, most of Dubai’s residents and businesses have learned to adapt where necessary. AL DHABI Horses is no different, and instead of closing for summer, it offers evening classes as well as desert rides throughout the DESERT that are ideal whether you are a skilled rider or an enthusiastic beginner, we have an Arabian or part bred Arabian horse to perfectly compliment your capabilities.
Our large family owned and run stables is relaxed, more an adventure riders club than an equestrian centre. Here at Al Dhabi, family and staff alike are passionate about their horses and the desert- literally right on the doorstep. Viewed from an Arabian horse, this breath-taking terrain gives our riders a glimpse into desert culture based on- survival, knowledge and instinct.
One of the last great wildernesses left on earth, the Arabian Desert remains the preserve of those who know and can read its changing contours. To the uninitiated it may appear intimidating, but with our guides, riders can safely explore its wild beauty, view its unique flora and fauna, and enjoy the freedom of an uninterrupted space where the sky meets the sand-making our rides, an experience never to be forgotten.
It’s a very relaxing way to spend an evening, and if you take one of the full-moon desert rides, you might also discover a spiritual side to the experience.
If nothing else, the draw of cooler evenings should prove attractive to most – it’s only a short drive from the city, and definitely worth a break in your usual routine.
