In a clip shared by Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, two of her brother’s, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s, daughters saddle up for a ride.

The royals showcased their riding skills on Jumeirah Beach, as they joined a group who pulled along wakeboarders and surfers from Surf House Dubai.

HH Sheikha Maryam bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and her sister, HH Sheikha Maitha bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, certainly have inherited the keen equestrian ability of their father, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

It isn’t clear from the clip if the sisters actually rode the horses that pulled along with water-sports experts, but they can be seen riding their steeds through the waves.

And they couldn’t have picked a better spot to show off their horse surfing, with the Burj al Arab looming in the background.

The sisters were also joined by their cousin, Sheikh Latifa, daughter of HH Sheikha Fatima, as well as performers from horseriding stables Team Z7 and martial arts experts Team Nogueira Dubai, who expertly pulled off the stunts.

Sheikha Maitha actually established Z7, and she’s no stranger to high-profile sporting activities – the taekwondo expert actually represented the UAE at the 2008 Summer Olympics.

The video clips have amassed thousands of views on social media over the weekend, with many commending the royals for their talents.

Where do they get their skills from?

Well, we think this latest post from HH Sheikh Mohammed explains it pretty well…
