  • Description


    Ride beautiful arab horses out in the desert at our private stud farm by the pyramids. We are a family who breed horses out of passion for more than 20 years at our private estate just outside Cairo, at the foot of the pyramids. We have more than 20 horses, mostly purebred Arabians and Anglo-Arabs and need help with training and riding them out in the desert (direct access from our estate) as well as other tasks around the stable. If you are a passionate rider it is a great opportunity to ride in a beautiful environment where it is sunny all year long and train horses with a lot of potential.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here you will experience the real Egypt and learn about the local customs away from classical tourist spots. You will still be a short distance away from Cairo city center, the Giza pyramids and the Sphinx, and a short day trip to the nearest beach.

  • Help


    We need help with training and riding our horses. You need to be an experienced rider, comfortable with challenging and young horses, who can work independently and take on responsibilities. Workawayers will care for the horses and train them (in the desert, arena or lunging). Please do not apply if you do not have sufficient experience with horses. Please tell us about your riding experience when you write (how many years, which discipline etc.).
