Horse Riding Lessons!

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Maimoonah is been going for horse riding lessons once a week for the last 3 months now, and enjoys every bit of it. Before we started I told Maimoonah about the Sunnah in learning how to ride horses and why Muslims are encouraged to do so. She really was well pleased and from day one Alhamdulillaah she has been a good student so far. We also hope to do a Horse Lapbook soon Inshaa Allaah.

We take her to Al Samariyah Equestrian Center  located a little away from Doha close to a place called Sheehaniyah. 

This Riding school is so flexible and charges are reasonable and the instructors are friendly too. You can take one hour or half hour classes accordingly. Maimoonah takes 1 hour class once a week.  For those of you in Doha, each class costs 90 riyals for non members 4 to 6 years olds and 100- 120 riyals for non members  7 - adults. Membership fee for a year is QR250  and if you pay that and become members its QR60 for 4 - 6 year olds and QR100 for 7 to adults.

You can take your classes as and when convenient for you by calling them and making a booking if you do not want to be regular. You can also take your kids for just a ride in the woods other than classes. The place is beautiful and on a winter sunny day it really makes you bond with nature Alhamdulillaah. 

Usually the kids get end their class after a full walk on their ponies or horses around the area.

Maimoonah has progressed well and is now able to ride a well behaved trained pony independently and is able to trot, turn a horse, stop it and make it go, ride while standing and is familiar with some other horse riding techniques.

Her father was well pleased with her and now she owns her own comfortable riding hat, baarakallaah feeha which she is very proud of and thankful to Allaah and then to her Abi.

 We are happy we took the decision to enrol her at this age as we can see this exposure is helping her to grow Islamically, physically, socially and emotionally and we ask Allaah to bless her and reward our's and her intentions and bring good to all of us. Aameen.

Dear sister May Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala ajr for your work and help you in all your good deed.

MashaAllahu wa barakatuh how nice to see your little girl is growing upon a sunnah (kitaus-sunnah).

Assalamu alaykum

Sister, could you please share the hadith that encourages horse riding, swimming and archery? Have heard of it, but never came across the hadith myself. Mariam saw this picture of Maimoonah on the horse and wants to try it herself.

Jazkillahu khairan

Alaikum salaam sister Nidha, I was hoping to mention the hadeeth and other points when we have completed the Horse Lapbook Inshaa Allaah. We have still not completed though. IN any case here is the hadeeth

The Prophet (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) said “Teach your children swimming, archery and horse riding”. In another narration, he said, “Practice archery and horseback riding.” [Sahih Muslim]

Hope this helps. I am sure Mariam would love it Inshaa Allaah. Let me know how it goes when she does attend.

Baarakallaah Feekum
