Look how the thoroughbred Arabian horses run circles around the stadium, while preparing for the next world-class competitions.
How to visit the sheikh stables in Dubai
The love of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum to the horses was expressed in the creation of the lagest race "team" - Godolphin. The company received this name in honor of the horse, which was one of the three ancestors of the breed of Arab horses. During the existence of Godolphin, horses from the sheikh's stables had won in more than 250 races in 12 countries around the world.

In the stables of the sheikh - Al Qouz and Al Asifa - they breed horses and prepare them for races, including the Dubai World Cup, which was also established by the sheikh. Every horse here is a real champion, in the past or the future.

How to do?

1. You can get into the sheikh's stables only by buying a ticket for the excursion. The Godolphin stables are located in the central part of Dubai, near the intersection of Al-Meydan Road and 26th Street.

2. You will see thoroughbred Arabian horses, bred specially for racing. There are training hippodromes, swimming pools, a veterinary clinic and even own factory for feed production - everything to ensure that several hundred Arabian horses are feeling well and able to provide the sheikh with another victory in competitions.

3. Watch the horses jogging around the hippodrome and go to the stables. Only the stablesmen and the sheikh himself are permitted to ride on horseback. After all, they are racehorses, and it's dangerous for an unprepared rider to deal with them.

How much?

The cost of the excursion for children is 165 dirhams, for adults - 238 dirhams.
