Embracing Equine Passion: A Journey from Giza Pyramids to Kuwait's Sands

In the shadow of the ancient Giza Pyramids, amidst the whispers of history and the echo of hooves against sand, my journey with horses began. It was 1998, a pivotal year when I first mounted a horse and felt an inexplicable connection that would shape my life in ways I couldn't have imagined.


Fast forward to today, and I find myself in Kuwait, still captivated by the allure of these majestic creatures. Riding has become more than just a hobby; it's a sanctuary—a place where the chaos of the office fades into the background, and the stresses of daily life melt away with each stride.


After a bustling day at work, there's nothing quite like the feeling of saddling up and letting the rhythmic motion of the horse carry me away from the demands of the day. It's a form of therapy, a means of relaxation that transcends the physical realm and touches something deep within the soul.


But riding is more than just a means of relaxation; it's a lesson in resilience and patience. There have been times when I've fallen off the horse—both literally and figuratively—but each time, I've risen again, stronger and more determined than before. Horses have taught me to embrace life's ups and downs, to persevere in the face of adversity, and to find strength in moments of weakness.


Perhaps the most valuable lesson riding has taught me is patience. Horses have a way of testing our limits, teaching us to slow down, breathe, and trust in the journey. They remind us that success isn't always measured by speed or efficiency but by our ability to endure and persevere, even in the face of uncertainty.



So, as I ride through the sands of Kuwait, I am reminded of the lessons learned amidst the ancient pyramids of Giza. Horses have been my constant companions, guiding me through life's twists and turns and reminding me that no matter how many times I fall, I always have the strength to rise again. And for that, I am forever grateful.
