Al-Marah Arabians, the country’s premier Arabian horse farm, is announcing new activities for 2015, aimed at beginners to equestrian experts – and everyone in between.
Al-Marah Arabians is owned by Mark Miller, founder of the Arabian Nights dinner attraction that wowed more than 10 million guests over its 25 year run. After Arabian Nights closed, Miller turned his focus to the operation and legacy of his family’s Arabian horse farm, consolidating the farm on 80 acres of rolling hills in Clermont.

Guests get a meet-and-greet with the horses, a riding lesson, a paint-a-pony opportunity and will learn some of training techniques that were used in the most famous performances at Arabian Nights, including the Liberty Act, where participants will learn how to teach a horse to rear and bow. This is a rare opportunity to interact with some of the top horses and trainers in the world. This activity is perfect for horse lovers of all ages and experience levels, and is available daily from 9 am – 4 pm.
