I was looking for something special to do for my 50th Birthday while my husband, daughter and I were on holiday in Sharm. I came across the Dahab Horse Riding Club and thought maybe a little horse riding on my actual day might be nice! NICE, it was AMAZING!
I was in contact with Emma in London, she arranged a day that started with flowers and a card delivered to my hotel room, could not say what a smashing start to our day this was. We were then collected and driven to Dahab, about an hour’s drive away, we then went to a little cafe to meet Sam and have a drink and a freshly baked cheese croissant, which I must say was the nicest croissant I have ever tasted. Then on to the beach to meet our horses, they were well cared for and healthy looking, which we were glad about. My daughter and I are riders but haven’t ridden for a few years, my husband has never ever sat on a horse, and his only time in a saddle was a Blackpool Beach Donkey. He was so well looked after, someone walked alongside him the full time we were out, well over 2 hours, we rode all along the beach, it was glorious, baking hot and blooming glorious!
We stopped for lunch at a perfect little cafe on the beach, lunch was lovely, the cafe man was kind and helpful, he even brought us all some flippers so that we could snorkel while our lunch was being freshly cooked. I was then treated to a gorgeous Birthday cake, all decorated with fresh fruit, it was delicious, all the cafe then sang me happy Birthday in Egyptian, I did not think the day could be any more perfect... I was wrong!
We left the cafe and went to the ‘harbour’ area where we boarded a boat, it was a bit hair raising walking the plank, but we were safe and well looked after by the boat man, I can’t remember his name, which is a shame because he was lovely. We went out into the bay, we snorkelled, then we fished which was just heavenly, we were just floating about in the water it was still and quiet, the moon was bright, the sun was setting behind the mountains and it was just heavenly!
I cannot praise this company highly enough, we started out as customers but I would say when we left Sam and Ali to return to Sharm it was like leaving 2 friends, and I can honestly say they will be friends we definitely want to see again, as soon as we are back in Egypt- which is such a beautiful Country!
Thank you Emma, Sam, Ali and all your people who made my 50th Birthday a day to remember. Sam took lots of photos that he said he would send to Emma to send on to us and I can’t wait to see them. This was an absolute perfect day and if would recommend anyone visiting Sharm who is or isn't a rider but is looking for a perfect day out to contact Emma through their own website!.
