Al Sahra Equestrian Centre is a full-service riding centre nestled in an oasis among the desert dunes of Dubai. Large enough to cater for all your riding requirements, yet small enough to maintain a relaxed friendly vibe, our rustic ranch-style property is home to forty horses and a group of camels. We offer rides out on the surrounding desert landscape as well as riding lessons - from absolute beginners up to advanced schooling - along with stable management instruction and livery facilities. Our Camel Encounter programme is popular with both tourists and locals alike, as it offers the chance to experience one of the great traditions of the Middle East.

I came here with my two sisters when they visited me in Dubai and we had the most amazing camel excursion in the desert to see the sunrise! We managed to somehow get mixed up with the dates so we ended up arriving one day earlier than we had booked. But the friendly staff arranged the excursion for us anyway!... More

This was an absolutley fabulous place to go and ride in the desert at sunset. It is not a posh place, just a small stables in the desert but the horses are clearly very well looked after and although basic, they have really nice facilities for them.
