Experience the excitement of horse racing at the city’s premier racetrack, which also boasts a top indoor equestrian centre.
A passion for horses is deeply entrenched in local life, and equestrian sports stretch back centuries. Sharjah Equestrian & Racing Club offers both horse racing and riding, with a 1,500-seat grandstand and one of the largest indoor riding facilities in the region.
The horse racing season runs from November to April. You can watch the world-class thoroughbreds in action during the Saturday race meetings or saddle up for a riding lesson or desert hack.
The club also hosts the annual Sharjah Arabian Horse Festival in December and the International Arabian Horse Festival every March.
