Our horse safari is based on an ancient way of traveling, which is offering horse-lovers the best possible way to be with the horses and get in touch with our wonderful country sites which were called RAGISTAN , which means “land of desert“. A horseback safari enthusiast can ride all day long on perfect sandy paths through stunning landscapes. The ride begins with a short instructive training session where the ride captain helps the fellow riders to get accustomed with the terrain and make a bond with their respective Indian horses.
We use Marwari horses trained at our own stables. This breed is native in Rajasthan, very Intelligent, loyal and best suited for long rides in this region. The most distinguishing features of the Rajasthani horse are its lyre-shaped ears, which curve inward and often meet at the tips. Besides providing a sharp hearing, they can be turned by 180 degrees.
The safety of rider and Horses is our top priority, Bringing in the best in class equipment, trained and qualified tour captains, best of safety practices followed world over, we give riders a safety feeling as well as a great adventure.
