I grew up in Ghana around animals and learned to ride at age 8. I have always had a love of horses and have since owned and trained dozens of horses and have helped countless riders and animal lovers to interact and bond with these beautiful animals. I have a passion for teaching horse-riding and cannot wait for you to join in on the adventure!

My fiancée and I had a great time learning all about Arabian horses (history/lore, evaluating quality, proper care, beginner riding fundamentals). The experience starts with a fascinating presentation accompanied by some really good coffee with cardamom and light snacks. You then are able to feed and groom the horses before getting some beginner riding time to finish (you’re taken through the whole process how to prepare a horse for riding). Adib was a great host and humored our many questions. Very informative and enjoyable experience.

What a Unique experience to learn about the rich history of the Arabian horse. I learned so much in 3 hours! The best part was riding beautiful Mia! I was hesitant at first because of a terrible fall off a horse years ago but Adib was such a patient & reassuring instructor.

I absolutely loved this experience. I took my husband Jason along with me as a surprise for him. The location is absolutely beautiful as well as the animals on this farm. I would definitely recommend this to people who want to interact with a horse for the first time ever. Thank you!!

GREAT for anyone interested in learning about horses - Arabian horses in particular. Also a great couples activity. Just a 35 minute drive from Solana Beach, San Diego. My girlfriend and I enjoyed a very comfortable and hospitable period of instruction with coffee, dates, and cookies. We got hands-on exposure and time feeding, walking, interacting with and riding on one of the beautiful Arabian horses. Adib was a phenomenal host, thoughtful, warm, knowledgeable and patient. Very much COVID-friendly/safe. I left utterly impressed and would highly recommend this experience at AK Arabians!

Adib was such a great host. I am very grateful for this experience; I had been eyeing it for a while. The last time I looked into it the days were completely booked. This time around I was lucky and booked for Thursday morning. It was definitely not the experience I expected. It was so much better. I was so happy to see that my friend and I were the only ones that booked for that morning so we got the most private experience. Adib started the morning with coffee and some snacks as he shared wonderful life stories and also the history and magic of Arabian horses. After this we walked down and met his horses, we then watched a little show Adib put on for us from afar. The final part involved learning how to groom, set up your horse for riding, and finally getting a chance to get on the horse. Adib was great at teaching us the importance of riding a horse properly and how to bond and make connections with these majestic animals. We loved the entire experience!
