The Sultanate of Oman is a country of enormous diversity and natural beauty with a rich history of horse riding. This is evident in the way they treat their horses and the importance placed on horse riding events, including flat and endurance racing. Fire and ice, fashioned from the desert wind, gift of god, horse that can fly without wings…these are just some of the euphemisms given to Arab horses, known for their endurance, strength, beauty and grace. Experienced riders will take up the challenge of riding spirited Arabian horses, with exhilarating gallops over the rugged terrain which encompasses the sand dunes of the desert, mountains, and the powder white sands of the beaches.
