Where to learn Horse Riding in Qatar ??-Al Samriya Riding School



To promote Qatar’s equestrian heritage by educating and serving the community to develop knowledge, understanding and the application of horsemanship amongst both national and expatriate participants and owners.

Mission Statement

We aim to:
  • Be a leading organization promoting the love of horses, the highest standards of horsemanship and riding skills, whilst supporting personal development through equestrian activities in the state of Qatar.
  • Promote horse riding and horsemanship in an effective, supportive, and fun learning environment.
  • Provide safe, enjoyable, challenging, and interactive learning through the use of innovative, structured, and evidence-based coaching.
  • Create a positive and caring environment for riders to learn about horse care and riding.
  • Encourage young people to ride and engage in the full range of equestrian disciplines within the national and international equestrian federation frameworks.
  • Educate learners about horse care, both through informal and formal academic routes.
  • Promote high standards of sportsmanship, citizenship and loyalty by cultivating strength of character, self-discipline, reflection, and respect amongst all club members.


We encourage care and compassion for horses, humans, and other animals. We aim to remain mindful of the needs of both horse and rider, so that all activities are safe, kind, positive, and productive.

We aim to create an environment where there is mutual respect between staff, learners, visitors, and equines. Our activities are designed to support members to achieve this aim and to achieve their best. We further encourage teamwork, self-confidence, self-discipline, and lifelong learning through programmes designed to enable the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and the ability to apply these effectively.

We promote a culture where staff and visitors are open, honest and trustworthy. We expect that staff members integrate these values within their teaching and customer service and that they are embraced by riders and visitors.

We aim to provide an inclusive learning and recreational environment regardless of age, race, religion, gender, or ability. This is further supported by encouraging flexible, collaborative, and non-judgmental teaching so that members feel safe whilst developing skills, confidence, and self-esteem. Sensitivity to the cultural and religious needs of others is integral to this.

Riding Lessons

Riding lessons are available for children and adults, from beginner to advanced levels. Lessons at the school are focused on general riding skills, confidence building, and an introduction to some of the different equestrian disciplines. Advanced riders have the opportunity to prepare for competition in dressage, show jumping and endurance riding.
Participants are grouped according to their riding ability and progression between the levels which is by coach assessment. There are four different levels, please click on the link below to find out more.
Private Lessons
Private lessons are available by arrangement with any of our instructors. They are available most mornings between 7:00 AM and 11:00 AM and between 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM according to arena and instructor availability. The lessons may be taken in the arena or out on the trails, depending on your goals and preferences. The sessions are 30 minutes long that’s why it is important that you arrive early so that you can be on your horse and ready to start promptly.
Semi-Private Lessons
Semi-private lessons are booked and arranged in the same way as private lessons, but are for two people. This is a nice option for parent/child combinations or for two friends to ride together privately. These sessions last 40 minutes, so again, it is important to arrive at least 30 minutes in advance to ensure that you are mounted and ready to start your lesson on time.
Group Lessons
Group lessons take place every day and provide a number of classes for children and adults from beginner to experienced. Sessions last approximately 45 minutes and usually have a cap of 6 participants. For the Tots sessions and pony rides, the duration is 30 minutes and these usually have a cap of 4 participants.


B1 Child or Adult and B2 Child or Adult

These classes are for adults and children over 8 years old who are new to horse riding. Direct entry to Beginner 1 is possible without an assessment. Entry to Beginner 2 is by assessment or coach recommendation after a lesson.

Riders may be complete beginners on the lead, through to beginners who are riding, stopping and steering, and learning to trot. Riders will also learn how to lead their own horse, moreover; mount to adjust girth and stirrups.


D1 Child or Adult and D2 Child or Adult

Entry to developmental classes is by successful assessment only. Progress between the two levels may be through coach recommendation within or at the end of a term.

Developmental riding lessons help you to become a more independent rider, develop additional skills in walk and trot and learn to canter safely. You will work towards trail riding without a leader and later be able to include some trot work on the trails. D2 riders may also be introduced to jumping.


Skill Development and Competitive

These classes are for experienced and confident riders and entry is by successful completion of an assessment only. There are options to prepare for competition and to try out for one of the ASRS teams. Lessons and training options may include riding skills development, faster paced trail riding, dressage, show jumping, and/or endurance riding. Adults and children may not be separated for some of these sessions; the level and training goal will dictate the groupings.
