About the Horses:
The Arabian horse is a breed famous for beauty and stamina. It is one of the oldest horse breeds in the world. Arabian horses are bred with horses of other breeds to add speed, beauty, endurance, and strong bones. Today, Arabian ancestors are found in almost every breed of riding horse. Historically, horses have always been considered as one of the most precious gifts exchanged between kings and sovereigns. Following this tradition, the Omani Sultans all along the history of the country have sent many Arabian horses as gifts to the kings and presidents of many countries in the world.
A variety of camping in the desert and hotel locations.
