Owner description: Charlotte has been working with horses in Hurghada for the last 12 years and has now teamed up with Jo, also from the UK to work on an exciting new project. Combining the rehabilitation of neglected horses and sharing the pleasures of the Eastern Desert with riders of all abilities and ages. Riding our beautiful Arabian cross horses in the spectacular scenery of the Eastern Desert is a life enhancing experience. We have horses for all levels, from complete beginners to professional riders, and everything in between! We have several child-friendly ponies so children are welcome. Normally, trips last from one to two hours, but we can arrange tailor-made full, half-day or overnight safaris to the mountains 20 kms away. We can also provide riding lessons if required. Safety is a priority with us so our equipment is of European standard including riding hats. Animal welfare is also a top priority. All our horses are well treated, well fed and happy!

We had booked a 4 hour excursion through the desert for our first day in Hurghada. Jo picked us up early in the morning and took my girlfriend (an experienced rider) and I to the stable. Jo was lovely! We then met Charlotte and our guide Hurmada (sorry about the spelling) who made us feel at home and introduced us to their donkey, sheep, goat, horses, dogs, cats and small puppy called Luna. Already this was great fun!

On our ride Charlotte went slightly ahead with my girlfriend, leaving Hurmada to try to teach me how to ride. Amazingly, within 2 hours or so I was galloping into the distance having the time of my life. Many thanks to Hurmada for being such a fantastic help!

We then had a lovely lunch back with the animals.

When Jo drove us home, we also stopped for a quick tour of the older part of Hurghada as it was our first day in town! This was very welcoming and we were offered strawberries, many thanks Jo!

After speaking with my girlfriend about how much fun we had, we decided to ring Charlotte and book a beach ride for our last day of the holiday. We were offered a discounted rate and again had a fantastic day out. Having never ridden before, I cannot recommend this enough. My girlfriend who rides everyday, also highly recommends Horseriding Hurghada and wants to book another holiday asap!

Very well organised and completely made our holiday, thanks Charlotte and co for the experience. We hope to see you soon. Oh and Tito our guide for the 2nd trip was equally helpful, and the best amateur photographer I have met.

The 4 hour trip was my girlfriend and I, Charlotte and Hurmada, and the beach trip was Charlotte, Tito, my girlfriend and I, along with 2 other lovely English ladies.

Cannot fault our time with Horseriding Hurghada!

Thank Fester1609

My daughter & her friend ride for 2 hrs.
They loved it, healthy horses, great weather & nice guide.
Riding in the sea seemed to be the hi-light! Easy to book from home before you arrive & supplied with Jo & Caroline's mobile no's so easy to confirm once we'd arrived in Egypt.
Great to find a stable run by 2 English ladies! Well done girls, keep up the amazing work u do;)
2 hour accompanied ride for £30 per person is amazing value! Thank you xxxxx

Had my first proper lessons at Horse Riding Hurghada following my scuba diving trip to Hurghada this month.
The place is set in an idyllic and unusually green glade adjacent to Hurghada "forest" and the desert, and is certainly a peaceful counterpoint to the madness of the resort. Run by some very friendly, down to earth and professional British and Russian equestrians who were happy to run us to and from the hotel, I learned to walk and trot in a couple of days and was soon having hacks out into the Eastern Desert with stable-hand Mubarek and my experienced fiancee Hils, who herself went on some fast hacks out with Charlotte while I was in the Manège. I now intend to continue my horse riding education back in Britain, and wouldn't consider another trip to Egypt without visiting Charlotte and co!

Thanks, you made my holiday!

My partner and I didn't know what to expect from this trip out. It turned out to be an absolutely amazing experience. We were collected from our hotel at the pre arranged time (contact was kept via e-mail and there were no issues, emails answered and always answered fully).
We arrived at the stables and were given British standard riding hats before being introduced to our horses. We mounted and set off.
At no time did we feel unsafe. We rode at a pace that suited my partner and I (he is a non rider and was very well looked after).
My main concern when riding is safety and this was first rate here.
My partner and I loved every minute there. It comes highly recommended by me, for both novice riders and competent riders alike.
E-mail the company for further information if you are holidaying in Hurghada.
This is an experience you won't regret. We will be returning as soon as possible.
