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.

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. The ride was superb with a safe yet advanced horse for me. I... More

The staff were also very helpful and got us up and riding promptly before heading out to the desert. The horse... More

Nice experience. Got it as a part of the sunset tour. Liked the way dates and tea was served on arrival. The place itself was beautiful after it was lit. Sunset view is good. One can take camel rides. Make an eagle sit on your hand, apply henna. A long stretch of desert. Beautiful. One can enjoy a dinner at... More

A nice experience in the desert...the fire breather and Arabian dance were delightful and breathtakingly captivating... The sensual belly dance and Arabian live band were equally entertaining. The best part of the evening was the delectable Middle Eastern cuisine and the excellent service by the waiting staff and managers alike. Not to be missed when in Dubai...

What a wonderful experience - lovely safe horses but not dull (not a waking nose to tail type experience!) and a guide who is knowledgable and happy to let you ride to your ability and comfort zone. Beautiful location although be prepared that taxi drivers may not... More
