All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

You have to provide only one sacrificial animal because you will assume Ihraam for another ‘Umrah. You are not obliged to offer a sacrificial animal for the first ‘Umrah because you traveled to Riyadh after you had performed it and thus you left the state of Tamattu'. Ibn Muflih, the Hanbali scholar  may  Allah  have  mercy  upon  him said while mentioning the conditions of Tamattu', “The pilgrim must not travel in the interval between ‘Umrah and Hajj. If he travels the distance that makes it possible for him to shorten prayers and then assumes Ihraam, then he will not be required to offer a sacrificial animal. ‘Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, said, ‘The pilgrim who returns is no longer in a state of Tamattu‘ because he did not comfort himself by staying in Makkah as in the usual case of the Tamattu’.”

Allah Knows best.
