Horses
Horses
Egyptian horses are some of the most beautiful and expensive horse breeds in the world. There are horse races at the Gezira Sporting Club in Cairo and at the Alexandria Sporting club all year round
 
Horses face the same fate as donkeys: they are often a farmersí only income. Many race horses that can no longer race are sold to farmers who put them to use pulling carts; others are sold to hansom cab owners.
 
As with donkeys, ill-fitting equipment that leads to untreated wounds and lacerations, sometimes for months, brutal beatings and endless working hours in grueling conditions leave horses worse for ware.
 
Tourism
Horses play an important part in Egyptís tourism: one can go for a horse ride in the Pyramids; for a hansom cab ride around parts of the city; Bedouin nights feature dancing horses at the Pyramids.
 
Though some establishments treat their horses relatively well, more often than not these animals are mal-nourished, ill-treated and are neither offered proper veterinary care nor proper resting hours.
 
Often, pregnant mares are forced to work long and harsh hours in harsh weather conditions. Horses are whipped harshly into submission.
