Horse racing has long been considered one of the most stimulating and racy spectator sports and for centuries, horses have been an intrinsic part of Arabian heritage. Horse racing provides the ideal environment for the entire family and Kuwait Finance House is striving to revive enthusiasm for the horse racing culture in Kuwait. Horse riding is a popular sport amongst the Kuwaitis and the country has its fair share of riding clubs.
If you are an equestrian or interested in learning horse riding or interested to see a horse race, then you can visit any equestrian club.

Kuwait Riding Center was established in February 1996 with 20 riders and 21 horses. It moved to its current location off 6th ring road in April 2001 and now has over 350 riders, 31 school horses and 42 private horses. The riding hub is quite well known in Kuwait for its experienced instructors, skilled grooms, excellent horses, and first-rate facilities. Located off the 6th Ring Road in Safat area, the school offers weekly lessons, from Saturday to Thursday, to riders aging 6 years and above and provides all kinds of training from beginners walk to advanced level including clearing the hurdles & show-jumping. The highly trained and qualified instructors of the school offer their valuable inputs and help the riders learn at their own pace. An accomplished equestrian can become a member of the prestigious team of the Kuwait Riding Center, which has won many laurels in local, national, and international competitions.
KRC, as the center is better known in Kuwait, also operates a well-stocked tack shop in order that all riders can obtain the correct clothing, as well as gifts for children and treats for horses. For parents and friends accompanying the pupils, the school has a small area where they can enjoy coffee and snacks while the lessons are taking place. Or you might just like to sit and relax in KRC’s lively, interesting and attractive grounds.
