Born and raised in Wadi Rum. Love to guide the riders through the desert. I met Astrid in 2018 who does all the communication and managing. And so beginning 2020 the horses were purchased to start multiple day rides in Wadi Rum. Since then we have already added some different tours like the horsemanship tour. Aiming a more respectful way of riding, communicating with horses.

Tour provider's comments

You should be able to control a horse in the three gaits in an open space. Be able to tack and untack a horse. You ride 25-30km per day. There is also one day visit of Petra which is a lot of hiking. After the horse riding there is one day of relaxing at the Dead Sea.

    Incredible scenery and horses in the desert, I had a lovely time riding with a local Bedouin. The staff was fantastic and Ali was a very friendly guide. I highly recommend this experience.

    Riding through Wadi Rum on horseback is truly incredible, especially with Ali ensuring my safety. I wish I had more time to enjoy it and ride even more! 😁

    Last summer, we embarked on a horseback tour with Ali and his horses, and it was an unforgettable experience. The horses were well-trained, the desert views were stunning, and Ali proved to be an excellent guide, especially for my inexperienced son and friend. Ali's family members provided excellent support by moving the camp twice a day and preparing delicious meals. Sleeping under the stars on comfortable mats with the horses nearby was a dream come true. The only drawback was the summer heat, which limited our riding activities. Despite this, we would love to repeat the experience, either in a cooler season or even in the summer again. We highly recommend them to anyone visiting Jordan and look forward to returning for another tour. Apologies to Ali and Astrid for the delayed review.
