Equestrian & horseback riding
Abu Dhabi’s history and love of horses goes back centuries, with the Bedouins (nomadic Arab people) relying heavily on this loyal and majestic animal. Horse riding can be a stunning way to explore the emirate – with family, friends, colleagues or even on your own. With this in mind, the equestrian-loving UAE capital is home to a variety of indoor and outdoor training areas, from fully floodlit polo fields to world-class stables. Special beach rides and desert hacking are on offer, with beginners and experienced riders who want to polish their skills being able to take riding lessons tailored to meet their individual abilities and needs.
