About Desert Horse Riding

Horse Riding Dubai is an adventurous experience which you must not miss in your desert safari.If your love for horses and horseback riding is as deep as your love for adventure and the
great outdoors, this is the perfect experience for you. Immerse yourself in the beauty and
tranquillity of the Arabian Desert as you ride across the endless red dunes on a majestic
thoroughbred horse.

along with relevant protective equipment. You will then meet your horse, ready to take you
on an unforgettable ride across the beautiful sand dunes. The hour-long ride consists of a
walk, trot, or canter – whichever you feel most comfortable with. Take in the picturesque
views as the sun rises on the horizon and don’t forget to keep an eye out for any local
wildlife. The journey includes a beautiful photo stop at sunrise to help you capture the
