Controlled Desert Horse Rides
This event has finished
The Al Wadi Equestrian Adventure Centre nestles amidst the rolling red dunes of Ras Al Khaimah’s desert lands. The unspoilt environment affords an exceptionally authentic environment as you experience the wilds of Emirati nature at its finest. The equestrian centre is home to beautiful Arabian horses, the rare oryx, swaggering camels, pretty desert foxes and, if you are very fortunate the shy desert cat.
For a unique horse-riding experience, visitors can ride through the undulating dunes at sunrise or sunset throughout the beautiful flame-coloured desert. Spacious white picket-fenced paddocks and a horse-walking arena allow for safe riding lessons. Well-qualified teachers guide beginners, children, intermediate and experienced riders through various skills. Children can learn how to care for ponies and horses through washing, grooming and walking lessons.
Al Wadi Equestrian Centre is not only home to horses, oryx and camels but also a fragile ecosystem home to desert vegetation, flowers and trees. The spiny-tailed lizard, rodents, small mammals, foxes, owls and wild cats also find their place in the natural, protected area.
When you visit Al Wadi Equestrian Centre, you can participate in horse riding lessons or a leisurely wander through the dunes on horseback.
Arabian horses have always played an intrinsic role in Emirati culture. The handsome horses are considered one of the purest breeds in the world with a wide flat forehead, soulful brown eyes, a broad, slightly turned-up nose, long, erect ears, a slender neck and a gloriously shiny mane.
