Riding Arabians in the Desert (Dubai/Abu Dhabi)

This is a long shot but I was hoping to get some advice on where to hire horses to go riding through the desert? My husband (total novice) and I (had 1.5 years of lessons but quit about two years ago) will be in the area mid-March We've seen a few stables online but I was hoping somebody might have some firsthand experience and could make some recommendations.

Thanks!


(Also - long time no see HT!)

My son was there for years near dubai and he says that your hotel should be able to find out about riding. hope you enjoy the time there and please be careful. do not venture too far away from people alone,, and go with a guide into the desert at all times. it is beautiful country and many people enjoy the rides and seeing the bedouins. .. and we sure would love to see photos of your trip.

I have "known" Maryanne since 1997ish and can't say how highly I recommend riding her horses.

here is more info:

It is my dream to go ride with her there!
