I have always wanted to canter along the sea line on a beautiful horse with the sun rising in the background and that is just what I got! The most unbelievably awesome time spent on horseback including galloping through the desert ending with swimming in the sea on horseback! Saleh was a most considerate host who made sure this was...

My wife and I went for an evening ride following a recommendation from another guest at our hotel. My wife has her own horse and is an experienced rider. I am a novice. However, we checked the horses before going and can only say that Sareh, our guide was superb and helped build my confidence. He also allowed time with... More

You never know what you will get when you ride horses at a resort. However, Saleh Mohamed and his horses at El Rancho in the Mercure Hurghada are a top notch facility. The horses are well cared for, trained, and loved. We took a two hour beach and desert ride. Saleh placed each of us with a horse based on... More

I had an amazing ride both by the sea and in the dessert. Plenty of space to gallop and beautiful views in the sunrise. Great advice and instructions while riding as well. I think this will suite anybody who wants to go riding. Do try it!!!!

It's fun to ride a horse in a dim desert to meet sunrise there! Also swimming in a sea with a horse, it's a big fun! To touch and feed such a big kind animal, it's even a bigger fun! Ребята, это фантастическое впечатление- отправится затемно верхом в пустыню встречать рассвет, а вернувшись купаться верхом на лошади в море!

I booked a sunrise tour with swimming in the sea option. It starts at 5.15 am and there were only 3 of us. We first went to the beach to watch sunrise, which was very nice, but the beach is terribly dirty (doesn't have anything to do with el rancho though ;-)). After that we went into the desert. Was...
