Our Horses

Our horses are the local breed commonly found across Egypt, referred to as Baladi or simply Egyptian horses. These horses are native to Egypt and have mixed bloodlines with Arabian and European influences. They are spirited, forward-going, and responsive with impressive stamina for long days in the saddle.

Each horse is unique, and we will do our best to match horse to rider based on riding ability and personal preferences. We hope you love them as much as we do!

Most of our horses have been rescued from difficult situations and rehabilitated. Their stories are unique and the mistreatment they’ve endured varies. Some arrived to us extremely malnourished, while others suffered from untreated wounds, abscesses, or other medical issues. We’ve also rescued horses that were severely mishandled, beaten, or the victim of cruel “training” methods. In some cases, they experienced a combination of these conditions. After time in our care with proper feeding, medical treatment, and gentle handling, they’ve become wonderful riding horses. Their resilience is truly remarkable.
