Horse Riding in Sharm!!!!

Hi,

Was just wondering if anyone had been horse riding while in Sharm? Who would you recommend? Cost? My daughter would like to do this, she is 12. Is there an age restriction? We are staying at the Coral Sea Resort.

Hiya

A few people have recommended the horse riding at the sofitel hotel as the animals appear well cared for here as opposed to some other establishments.Not sure of cost but i'm sure your hotel could find out for you.We're hoping to do it when there in august.

Kilty - if one asks the hotel to find out prices or arrange it, will they do this as a service(and offcourse get a tip) or would they take provision?

Hi,

Two other hotels are Magic Life (have ridden there on thr beach at sunset) & also Concorde El Salam. Roxy (horsey lady) has said that the animals are well cared for.

We booked thru Thomson a a few trips ago; the animals at the Magic Life weren't in bad shape. I've also seen the Sofitel ones & they weren't too bad either.

I don't know how /who the other hotels use if you ask to book thru them but I wouldn't book anywhere where I hadn't 1st seen the horses as some posters have been quite upset when they have been on trips & seen how poor the animals are.

Regards

Hi Nephthys,

Surely if you book to go horse riding with your travel agent they would use a company that caters well for the animals? I certainly would not like any animal to suffer just for the sake of us tourists.

Hi Kerrtoon,

Yes, I'd be wary of booking thru a local vendor for horse riding; we booked thru Thomson.

P.S. What I was trying to say (& not very clearly so far! lol!) was that if you book directly thru your hotel, as opo to your rep, they will, in turn, book thru a local vendor.

Regards
