Welcome To Friday

Nancy's path.kmzFriday is the first day of the weekend in Egypt so it's the first day of my heavy working days. My first set of clients today were a couple of high school girls who come to ride every weekend. Neither of them are the most courageous riders, although Nancy rides one of my more difficult horses, Dooby. We did an easy round along the bottom edge of the desert below the pyramids of Abu Sir… Continue

Gimps and Newbies

Having recently pulled a muscle in my leg, I decided to introduce Hannah to VV endurance with a really "easy" ride. Well, at least in terms of speed. We went out and walked for almost two and a half hours because I couldn't handle anything faster without causing more damage to the already sore spot. We took out three of the youngsters (5 to 6 year olds) out for… Continue

Been a while getting this finished due to health issues here. Had a sleep problem that necessitated nights in a sleep clinic to diagnose and then arrange treatment with my new best friend, an air pump that pushes air through my sinuses so that I don't partially wake about 90 times an hour. Good thing that I ride from my house and don't have to camp to go… Continue

We started out just to have a training ride for one of my young mares, an hour in the desert and another in the countryside, to see how she's coming along in her work. She's about four and a half, a rose-grey baladi arab, the unconcerned mother of the devil of the farm Shams who runs riot with the dogs. Farag has been training her under saddle and as yet… Continue

I haven't been riding much for the past three weeks between a combination of friends visiting and raging bronchitis. Hard to get into frolicking across the desert when you are hacking up your lungs. So when I thought about riding today I sort of had in mind one of my older steadier horses like Bunduq or Negmadin. BUT, I had three clients want to come… Continue

Hi Maryanne

NO she's not an axe-murderer. She'llbe fine! Quite a rough and ready set-up but I'm sure she will enjoy it. Be ready for very high temps though, going into the very hot months around here.
