Yesterday the 25th August 2011 the Al Ahli Horse Riding Club in Dubai suffered a fire. Due to the quick and fearless actions of the staff, no horses were seriously injured. One horse suffered minor burns and will make a full recovery in a matter of weeks.
All Staff made it out of the fire also un injured. We thank them for their bravery.
The staff were alerted to the fire by a member of the public, shortly after a groom also noticed smoke as he woke to a strange smell.
The fire service was called and attended the club in a very short time and quickly had the blaze under control, but not before we had lost all our equipment, saddles, bridals and a whole barn of 14 stables. We thank the Dubai Fire service for their actions and bravery.
