Arabian Morning Horse Riding & Stable Tour

Summary

Start your Arabian horseback riding tour with an early morning pickup from your hotel and relax during the 20-minute drive to the stables near the Bahrain Fort - a UNESCO World Heritage Site (2005). On arrival at the stables, you’ll sit down for a traditional Arabic coffee or tea accompanied by local breakfast delicacies (choose "breakfast package"). Explore for yourself the "land of immortality", the ancestral place of Sumerians and a meeting point of gods according to the  Epic of Gilgamesh. While professionals prepare the horses for the trail ride, take in the serenity of the majestic surroundings, where heritage and modern times meet. You’ll be paired with a tame horse that is well-suited to your skill level for the approximate 1-hour ride.  After a safety briefing follow the same horse trails once used by Kassites, Greeks, Portuguese and Persians dating back from 2300 BC. During the horseback trail ride, you’re surrounded by gorgeous views of the Bahrain Fort, silhouetted against the sunrise as you head towards the shore of the Karbabad beach past the fort museum.  Keep your camera on hand to capture photos of breathtaking view of the 500 year old fort and, if you have a keen eye, spot the Manama skyscraper skyline in the distance. After your horseback ride, head over to the stables lounge for some refreshments and prepare to wear traditional Bahraini attire for photos next to a fully decorated native costume Arabian Stallion (choose Photo-Op package) and learn more about these beautiful creatures from the real life stories of a local Bahraini equestrian jumping champion "The Captain".    You’ll return to your hotel with the entire day ahead of you to experience more of Manama. Please Note: This is a single-file trail ride. Due to safety regulations, guests are not permitted to run or gallop the horses on the trail.
