Don't be put off by the fact that Karim sounds asleep everytime he answers the phone. He is actually lovely and very accomidating. On really short notice, he arranged everything for us and walked our driver through how to reach their stables
Be prepared as you drive past garbage, scary skinny horses, camels and mules you will start to question whether you made the right decision. But rest assured, the horses and team at FB stables are excellent. They have a very large stable, with a range of horses from beginner to advanced, many of whom have they have bred themselves.
I went with a friend who had never really been on a horse before and Karim chose the most gentle wonderful horse. Our guide was Ahmed who -- in flip flops -- was an amazing rider and who, by the way, happens to be amazing with an iphone! He had my friend cantering before we even reached Sakkara. The guy went from no no no to giddy-up! It was amazing how well he taught him and made him comfortable.
seeing the pyramids from horseback kept us away from all of the rif raff and was just plain beautiful and peaceful.
All I can say is that I will make a point to schedule a ride with FB into every trip I take to Cairo.
