I didn't sue. Trying to pursue a lawsuit in Cairo from the US didn't appeal to me. I had another surgery a month after to explore nerve damage and remove a bone fragment. I had 6 months of physical therapy and my nerve is still recovering.

Humpty Dumpty needed to be put back together again...

Please be cautious using this club, and riding horses overseas period, unless you are a very experienced rider. I rode often as a teen and when I went to Cairo in October 2012, I scheduled an afternoon horseback ride by the Giza Pyramids with this equestrian club. The owner was very hospitable and even battled traffic to pick me up from where I was staying and bring me to his club.

The owner had one of his staff saddle up a horse and provide me a guide. Unfortunately, the guide was a teenager and spoke no English. I followed the guide out on a sandy trail to the open desert by the pyramids. My horse was very slow and I had to push him to keep up with the guide. About 20 minutes into the ride, and where we reached open desert, the horse took off in a full gallop. He wasn't responding to any reign or voice commands to slow or stop. Fortunately, we were heading towards a fence line and he had to stop. The terrain was very rough in this area and there were many hard rocks and concrete trash piles. I settled the horse and we turned to head back toward my guide (who was just waiting in the distance). The horse took off once again in a full gallop. This time, there were no fence lines to stop him, only open dessert. He again refused to respond to reign or voice commands and just tossed his head back when I pulled on the reigns. At some point I lost my balance and fell off to the left side (at full gallop). I immediately knew something was wrong with my arm and when I stood up with star-filled vision, my arm was hanging from my elbow. I knew I either broke my arm really bad or dislocated it. The guide rode over to me and then motioned that he was going to get the horse. I tried to communicate that I wanted to ride on the back of his horse with him, but he thought I meant switch horses. My arm was in excruciating pain and I couldn't even get on the horse. Fortunately, there was a pile of concrete that I was able to climb up and then get on. After a 25 minute ride from hell back to the barn, I walked into the stable bawling. The owner looked at me in shock and his friend came over to help. Long story short, I called my friend at the embassy and he told me what hospital to meet him at (El Salam). The owner drove me to the hospital and I ended up being diagnosed with radial nerve palsy (no use of left hand) and a shattered elbow and lower humerus fracture. 4.5 hr surgery, 2 plates, and many screws later, this humpty dumpty was repaired. Needless to say after spending 5 days in the hospital, I flew home immediately.

I didn't sue. Trying to pursue a lawsuit in Cairo from the US didn't appeal to me. I had another surgery a month after to explore nerve damage and remove a bone fragment. I had 6 months of physical therapy and my nerve is still recovering. Didn't receive use of my hand/wrist until 2.5 months after. It will still be another 6 months before I have full feeling back. I have a rocking scar down most of my arm and I some screws and plates as a souvenir. Not my ideal adventure, but makes for a good story.
