Horseback-Riding with Al Jiyad Stables, Dubai

An incredible thing to do in Dubai that is a rich part of Arabian culture, is to mount a horse and journey through the spectacular Arabian desert by horseback, with Al Jiyad Stables.

Al Jiyad Stables

Owning over 50 fit and energetic leisure, school and endurance horses, Al Jiyad Stables is a spectacular, Emirati family-run equestrian facility in the heart of the Sieh Al-Salem nature reserve. The place is great for visitors of Dubai, whatever their interests and horseback-riding levels. Riding and endurance training is offered for beginners and advanced riders alike, and staff are always there to ensure each visitor is given a horse with a suitable temperament to their riding level.

Horse-Riding Safari

One of their most glorious experiences with Al Jiyad Stables is their sunrise horse-riding safari, where visitors can witness the early rays of the rising sun illuminating the frolicking, majestic gazelles and oryxes around them. Camel rides are also available, for those wishing a different experience.

Either the horseback or camelback riding safari is followed by a delicious Emirati feast, freshly brewed tea and comfortable lounge around in an Arabic tent.
