Hi and welcome to the forum,

There are quite a few centres that offer riding lessons ( during the cooler months)

Arabian Ranches- Polo Club

arabian ranches polo club horse riding - Google Search

and another I know of is the Jebel Ali Equestrian Centre

Jebel Ali Equestrian Club,*

I believe there is also one in Nad al Sheba.

There are also equestrian centers in the other emirates too.

Default Horseback riding in Dubai

Hi All,

Our family of 4 is moving to Dubai this summer for 2 to 3 years.

We are all avid horse enthusiast, we currently ride a fair amount in France, Dressage and Show jumping. Wondering if there is an active equestrian scene in Dubai. Are ridding lessons expensive ? How does it work in the summer ? are the stables Air Conditioned ? Can one ride outside ? Are ponies also available ? Thanks in advance for your help/Feedback.

Jebel ali and Arabian ranches both have stables. The ranches is called the polo club I believe and it is massive, don't know about Jebel Ali.
The big boss here loves horses and has just opened Meydan.

Yes they ride outdoors but for a short amount of time (longer in winter as expected due to the weather) I haven't seen any air conditioned stables but they wash the horses 3 times a day I think. Horses/ponies are imported for polo but they have a wide range in Dubai for normal riding and lessons. Riding lessons are cheaper than in the Uk by far but don't know how that compares with France.
Equestrian scene is still here but from what I can gather some (less nice people) abandoned their horses just like their cars and legged it. I think it has all levelled out now but just like everywhere people are tightening their belts and I do feel the quality of instruction has gone down.

Emirates Riding Centre is a great place. Prices are good, horses well cared for and instruction has always been good.
