As we arrive at the horse centre you'll be matched with the best horse available to suit your ability and size.

After an hours trek through the stunning desert landscape you'll be taken to an authentic Bedouin tent for a rest and refreshing tea - the Egyptian way.

This is a great tour for riders of all abilities and a firm family favorite - a lovely way to spend a few hours of your ho9liday and make memories that will last forever!

Sharm Desert Horse Riding
Me and my Fiance booked this trip and it was fantastic. I was a bit wary as I am an active rider and my fiancé had never been near a horse! Omar gave us horses suitable to our experience, the horses have a lovely temperament and do exactly as he says. granted they may be a little skinny but maybe our horses are just fat?? Within 5 minutes my fiancé and Omar were best of friend and off cantering in the desert!! A great experience and Sharm Excursions reps are brilliant, they came to our hotel, sorted everything out and picked us up always on time. I will never book with holiday reps again when you have excellent service like this. Well done Sharm Excursions!

What a brilliant laugh this was. My partner and I were novices (haven't ridden for 20-odd years!) so the horses we were given were gorgeous gentle beasts by the names of Sara and Mona-Lisa.

Our guide was Ali Baba (!) who clearly loved the animals and had great control of them... they were so obedient I am sure they would have known the route of their own accord, but responded to his every command anyway. Even having only been shown the basics, we were soon able to canter on them which was slightly scary at first, but Ali Baba was so confident in them and so in control that we soon became comfortable doing it.

After a short stop in a Bedouin tent (beware, when you are offered a much needed drink in there, you will be expected to pay for it!) where the Bedouin girls then sell you their jewellery too - not a complaint, just something it would be good to know about in advance, hence mentioning it here) we re-mounted for our return to the stables.

One of the best elements of this (apart from the hilarious and barking mad Ali Baba) was that towards the end we were joined by a photographer on a quad-bike who took photos and videos of us and by the time we dismounted back at the stables they were all on a laptop there for us to see.

Of course we wanted to buy them... they were so good! It cost about £22 but as we didn't have enough cash on us having been fleeced at the tent the photographer was good enough to drop them at the hotel later that day and collect the payment there... brilliant idea and more than we had expected.

Loved this excursion, great couple of hours well spend!

What a fantastic Trip , picked up on time and in a new reliable air conditioned vehicle and taken to the Omar stables to pick up our horses and guide. Being a very very novice rider and my wife a decent rider we were given horses that suited our skill level . I rode Mona Lisa who was very gentle yet great fun , my wife rode prince who was a little more testing . Ali our guide (and trainer in my case!) was absolutely fantastic , my confidence grew under his guidance and we had an awesome time. I just wish I had booked a longer ride. Only thing I would say is do not expect to gallop over rolling sand dunes , a great pre arranged trek with a nice stop at the Bedouin type shack for refreshments . Highly recommend !

Mum and dad booked with you so that I could experience every horseriders dream to be able to ride an Arabian in the desert. As a horserider of 12 yrs I thoroughly enjoyed my whole trip out at the stables my horse 'CLAY' was gorgous he was really good I enjoyed cantering and trotting in the desert with him and with the sun setting. It was Dad and mum and Gran's first time on horse back they did not too bad mum's horse 'Mickey' was really good with her she did a trot for the first time on him. The whole thing was an amazing experience which I would recommend to anyone as the horses are so gentle with first timers.

What age can a child ride a quad alone? My son is 14 and rides hisself is that ok? Also we like the sound of the horse riding but none of us have rode a horse before, would this be a problem?
Many thanks

Regarding the Quad Runner trip in Sharm Desert : This is allowed for the children older than 12 years old to drive their own but if they younger than 12years old they must be on quad with an adult and in this case the child will be for free in this trip . Regarding the Horse ride trip : There is no problems at all if this is the first time in your life to ride horses .
