My name is Emma & I built Ride Egypt 7 years ago. I didnt really mean to set up such a big company, I started with just 3 horses in Dahab who were standing in the sun all day on the beaches looking for work, I felt there must be another way so I put on the only dress I had in my suitcase with a knocked together business card from a vending machine and hit the streets and hotels looking to secure direct work from them allowing the horses to be ridden from the stable rather than standing in the scorching sun, I won and secured several local hotels, The rest as they say is history! Now in Luxor I have an award winning stable and fantastic partner stables in Cairo and the Red Sea.
Before COVID19 I devoted my time to showcasing the best of Egypt to guests in & out the saddle. We achieved amazing things! Now with no income, my devotion turns to feeding our animals + keeping out staff in jobs. I hope you are all staying safe and positive throughout these troubling times. Here in Egypt, life has changed considerably, but of course our fur babies are none the wiser, with no fear of COVID-19 affecting their lives in the way that it has ours. But that is not the whole truth.
For those of you who have followed Ride Egypt’s story from the start, you will know that I’m a sucker for a rescue case with the majority of my four legged friends being rescued from the street, a life of fear or quite simply death’s door and although my team and I have been able to provide them with a better life we are now facing tough times financially and need your support now more than ever. Many of you who have holidayed with us here in Luxor will have met and fallen in love with our stunning team of horses, our playful puppies and lovable cats. You will have seen how much my team and I are dedicated to ensuring the health and well-being of all animals in our care, but also how we also strive to help you, our Ride Egypt family, experience the best of Egypt when you are with us. Now we need your help.
We have no idea what is around the corner or when we will be able to ride with you again, but what I do know is that we want to continue to care for our animals and be able to open our doors to you again when it is safe for us to do so.
For this reason, I’d like to invite you to become a Ride Egypt Angel, because everyone needs a guardian angel, even our four-legged friends.
As a Ride Egypt Angel, you can choose to wrap your angel wings around a particular member of our four-legged team or the whole crew by offering a one-off or monthly donation of any amount, no matter how big or small to help us continue helping them.

In return, all Ride Egypt Angels will receive a monthly newsletter with an update on their sponsor and a lot of love from the whole team. I’ve already had to say goodbye too many times and by becoming a Ride Egypt Angel, you’ll be protecting us all in more ways than one.
I know 25k looks like a huge number, and trust me its more frightening for me to read than you, but our average basis spend is 6k a month for 45 animals, rent and salaries. This does not include extra challenges such as when Belal breaks his box or naughty Malik charges at the fence in the paddock taking it down... also gelding operations, spade operations for cats or dogs, this month our spend was 9k!
Please help us help them!
Lots of Love

Our animal headcount was 44 last week at the time I launched this page, since then we have fostered a grey mare whos baby died, we found a puppy in the street that has either had acid thrown over it, or has been set on fire, a street cat moved in + had 3 babies yesterday! Our family never seems to stop growing even in challenging times. Please keep supporting and sharing and thank you again
