Egyptian horse-riding school highlights the unrestrained joy of free-riding – The National

Littered with stables that house hundreds of horses, the district of Saqqara, about 30 kilometres south of central Cairo, has long been a favourite for Egypt’s equestrian enthusiasts.

Perhaps that is why Omar Abu Karama, the founder and head coach of Talaat Kheil, a nascent free-riding school, chose the area as his operation’s headquarters.

“I began riding when I was 3 years old. I grew up in the district of Haram, an area famous for its love of horses, so it wasn’t such a stretch that I became so fascinated with them and with the freedom that one feels when one is on horseback,” Abu Karama tells The National.
