Welcome to Ride Egypt

Horse Riding in Luxor, Cairo, Hurghada & Sharm

Ride Egypt

We are a British owned award winning equestrian company offering world class riding holidays and excursions in Egypt.
Picture miles and miles of open desert, surrounded by colossal mountains and the burning rays of the sun glistening on the sand. Lush green palm trees blowing gently in the breeze and sheltering the shallows of the Nile where water buffalo graze, and the crystal clear waters of the Red Sea lapping against the fine golden sand.
No need to imagine. This is the magic of Egypt. This is Ride Egypt.
