Sharjah Tourism Travel Quiz

Spectate or ride in tribute to the Arabian horse

A passion for horses is deeply entrenched in local and Emirati culture. Equestrian sport stretches back for centuries in the UAE history. In a tribute to this, the Sharjah Equestrian Racing Club welcomes riders and spectators alike with premier facilities. It boasts a 1,500-seat grand stand for horse racing and one of the largest indoor facilities for horse riding. If you want to see some thoroughbreds in action, put this on your list of places to visit in Sharjah and drop by for a Saturday race meeting. For a family experience with the horses, come for the lessons offered at the club. One of the fun things to do with kids is to go hacking alongside them during a riding lesson.

Races at this venue are prominent Sharjah events, running from November to April. The club also hosts the annual Sharjah Arabian Horse Festival in December and the International Arabian Horse Festival every March. During these events, the club is one of the most popular tourist places in Sharjah. In the middle of the year, lessons are also popular as part of the many summer activities for kids.
