I first rode with Omar's in March 2012, on good horses, and gave them a favourable review. I went again in Jan 2014 and was shocked at the deterioration of the horses. The horse I was given was very thin (it is true to say that Egyptian horses are naturally narrow but this was beyond that), seemed tired and kept... More

On a visit to Omar riding club in May 2015 I purchased some apples in the market for the horses at the stables.My suspicions were raised immediately when one of the workers took the bag away from me as I did want to treat the horse I would be riding before we went out. The horse provided was called Layla... More

Saiid took us out on the horses and was absolutely lovely. We had a nice walk, trot and canter through the desert for about an hour and halfway we stopped to allow the horses to rest and had some bedouin tea and a nice chat. An amazing experience, try it.

I am not the most experienced rider and had not ridden for many years. The horse I was given was well behaved and well looked after as were all the horses in the stables. I went horse ridding 5 times during my stay in sharm and enjoyed every minute of it. Mustafa who owns the horses is a great guide... More

The guide was a lovely man, took me through to the Bedouin tents and had tea. he was lovely. My... More

My child insisted to spend day off actively. So we decided horse riding is the best solution for getting positive emotions. My horse was Shakira, white, calm and understood my commands. One hour flew like an arrow. Amazing mountain view, desert, sea far away, cloudless sky and mangrove forest - all that made our mood high. Again it was splendid... More

If you do one thing in Sharm, it's visit Omar riding. I'm a horse lover and was not disappointed by the experience, I've ridden all over the world, by this has to be one of the best. The staff are so friendly and generous, they go out of their way to tailor the ride to your individual abilities and interests.... More
