Hello get your guide, unfortunately there is no note in the description that entry to the park has to be paid. The taxi for the return trip was organized by the riding stable. There were a lot of hoses lying around on the riding course, which doesn't seem dangerous for riders and horses. Horses and care were great! Everyone liked it very much.

Super rider evening

Was really a great experience and my riding guide was very nice. He had experience and seemed very confident, and he immediately recognized my weak points and addressed them in a targeted manner. Suitable for people who can really ride all 3 main gaits! If you come by taxi from Dubai City, plan enough time because the taxi drivers are usually a little overwhelmed ... if the destination is not Dubai Mall ;-)

After starting difficulties an absolutely wonderful experience!

The ride was booked on February 14th, 2014 for 7:00 a.m. I was there on time and unfortunately had to find out that you couldn't enter the park before 8:00 a.m., so I had to wait in front of the park. After 7.15 a.m. no one was still there I called the riding stables and they told me that the ride would start at 7:30 a.m. So make sure to call again beforehand and clarify the details, unfortunately I made the mistake and didn't do it! The horses and all the other riders were there on time at 7.30 a.m. I was asked several times whether I was a beginner or not. Although I am by no means a beginner, I ended up in the beginner group somehow, which was not a problem, Because the beginner group is definitely not for really pure beginners, we are mostly trotted and it can get bumpy due to the sandy underground! All in all it was a wonderfully successful ride, but we were not allowed to feed or clean!
