Overview
More
Al Sahra Equestrian Centre is a full-service riding centre nestled in an oasis among the desert dunes of Dubai. Large enough to cater for all your riding requirements, yet small enough to maintain a relaxed friendly vibe, our rustic ranch-style property is home to forty horses and a group of camels. We offer rides out on the surrounding desert landscape as well as riding lessons - from absolute beginners up to advanced schooling - along with stable management instruction and livery facilities. Our Camel Encounter programme is popular with both tourists and locals alike, as it offers the chance to experience one of the great traditions of the Middle East.
