found a muslima horseback rider?

Asalamu alaikum,

I think I found a muslima rider, here is the author page of her website. She wrote "The Everything Koran Book" and she is from Egypt. While I know there are Christians in Egypt, she did write that book about the Qur'an, so it seems safe to assume that she is Muslim.

I am trying to contact her to hear how she combines being Muslim and a horseback rider.

We'll see Insh'allah!


  1. Salamu Alaikom Sister, I'm so happy I found your blog ! I've been muslim about 5 years..I grew up riding and just recently started taking lessons again. I'd love to talk to you privately insha'Allah. Let me know if that would be possible ! Oh I live in california by the way. I wish a bunch of us could get together and do group lessons, but it seems like there aren't very many of us :(

    1. Walaikum salam, I was neglecting the blog for a while, so I didn't see your comment sooner. I don't see a way to contact you, but if you would still like to talk then send a reply in the comments with an email address and I will not publish the comment so no one else will get the contact info.

  2. It's been over a year and she hasn't replied.
    On the author page there is a picture of her with a horse. She didn't cover her hair for that pic, so I can only assume she doesn't do anything special in being a muslimah rider. If she is a muslim, which maybe she isn't. Alright, that was a dead-end.
