Originally a private farm, the facility hopes to attract UAE nationals, residents, visitor and schools and is positioned to host private functions, celebrations and children’s birthday parties. General Manager Brian Galligan comments:

“We are very excited to open our doors and welcome the UAE community to experience an authentic farm environment at Al Tamimi Stables. We believe that the stables will give visitors the opportunity to explore nature and learn more about the environment in a fun and natural way.”

The site is also host to an Equestrian Centre that will offer the following services: horse care for beginners, groom training, breeding and horse trading.

Al Tamimi Investments CEO Rachael Wunsch, explains the decision behind taking ATS on board:

“Opening up the stables to the wider public was a natural choice for Al Tamimi Investments and is part of our impact investment strategy to increase social benefits for the wider community. Al Tamimi Stables is a hugely valuable resource, offering families the opportunity to learn about the natural world, get active together and have fun. We expect the stables to quickly become a favourite family destination.”
