Horses, Dunes and Nomads

Ride Overview

Ride excellent horses with fabulous guides through the southeastern part of Morocco, off the beaten path. The ride can be fast-paced where the terrain allows, when you can gallop your Barb stallion in the open desert space. Evenings are spent in comfort in inns. This blend of comfortable travel combined with the stark adventure of the Moroccan desert makes adds up to a unique horseback riding holiday.

    As is the custom in Morocco, the horses are Barb stallions, 14.2 - 15.2hh. They are strong, calm and well trained for trekking. The horses are accustomed to traveling together, however, riders must be aware of the stallions and not allow them to come too close to each other. On Day 2, time is spent matching each rider with a suitable mount. English saddles and snaffle bits are used.
