The ‘horse city’ will include the first technical school specialized in the field of horse breeding, areas for horse riding, a huge veterinary building, and a hotel for competitive horseback riders.
‘Egypt Stables’ is a complex in the New Administrative Capital dedicated entirely to purebred Arabian horses, and it’s set to be the biggest of its kind in the Middle East.
Costing an estimated EGP 1.5 billion, the complex will cover an area of 85 acres within the New Administrative Capital’s sports district. The ‘horse city’ will include the first technical school specialized in the field of horse breeding, areas dedicated to horse riding, a huge veterinary building for the treatment of equine diseases, and hotel buildings adjacent to the complex to receive international participants for competitions.
The new city includes a large library building, which contains books and archaeological documents all about breeding Arabian horses and documenting the history of Arab breeds. Another small building will serve as an archive for artifacts that detail the stages and dates of various horse breeds in Egypt and the Middle East.
The development includes a system integrated for all activities related to horses, as well as efforts to transform the ancient Al-Zahraa stable for purebred Arabian horses into a museum befitting of its historical value. Opened in 1908, the Al Zahraa stable was established during the reign of King Fouad I to house the strongest breeds of horses including Al-Saqlan, Al-Kahilan, Al-Hadban, and Al-Abayan, all of which are rare and globally renowned breeds.
The project is nearly complete, with the opening date to be announced soon.
