Al Samariyah Equestrian Centre – Where, Tomorrow, I Start Riding Lessons!!

I’m SO excited I can’t contain myself!!!!

I’ve have always dreamed of one day owning my own horse!  Now that dream will one day be possible!  So it is time to start to learn how to own a horse!! I start tomorrow at the Al Samariyah Equestrian Centre!  I’ve told them that I want to learn how to own a horse and they said they will teach me everything I need to know!!

Today I drove out to find the centre – located on the property of Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al Thani Museum off of Dukhan Highway.

With the help of an Amiri Guard, I was able to find the stables that are not advertised along the way.

I arrived to my little girl dream setting of one day riding an Arabian Horse across the desert……

I immediately bonded with a woman named Tara who is from the UK, has been riding since she was four years old, works in finance but spends her spare time at the stables – riding three times a week.  She showed me around a bit, introduced me to some of the horses and is lending me a pair of riding boots and chaps for my first lesson tomorrow morning!!

Some of the horses at the stable are world class champions.  I don’t know enough yet to qualify that – but at some point I will blog about these horses!  One horse – either a Dutch or Belgium Warmblood – in her day – was worth over 50,000.00 EUR!  She was a jumping champion!  Another Arabian – the horse in my feature image – just returned from a European Show and qualified for something incredible……

Watch the young Thoroughbred and Arabian horses run:  AMAZING!!!!!
