Riding horses on the weekend provides an exciting three-day adventure in the unspoiled outdoors, filled with emotions and discoveries. You'll be closely connected with our loyal Arab Berber horses.

This weekend horseback experience is designed for those with limited time but a strong desire to fully immerse themselves in nature and the world of horses. You'll engage in outdoor activities, sleep in Berber camps, and enjoy delicious Moroccan cuisine.

We start our journey on Fridays from the Ranch. You'll meet your guide, horse, and fellow travelers. You'll then head inland, crossing small canyons formed by the Ksob River. Afterward, you'll ascend a hill, granting you a breathtaking view of Essaouira's port, Mogador Island, and the natural ocean lagoon.

Following this, you'll travel through Argan forests, pristine beaches, ocean cliffs, and the vast sand dunes of Cap Sim. The mistral lighthouse at Cap Sim will guide your way back.

The organizer speaks: English
In 2006, an enthusiastic horse-riding tourist from Italy came to Morocco to book a horse ride on the (then still small) Ranch de Diabat: Erika. Omar, one of the two brothers who ran the ranch, was her riding guide... This encounter led to a serious relationship and Erika soon left Italy to live and work as a partner on the Ranch in order to realise a shared dream: to propagate trail riding in Morocco throughout the world. Erika had previously worked in tourism and riding is her great hobby. At the Ranch, she is the organiser who takes care of the rides. She is very concerned about the welfare of the horses and contributes with many new ideas to ensure that there is always something new at the Ranch.

Tour organizer's comments

To participate in this excursion it is not necessary to have an equestrian level, even beginners are accepted, but in their case we do not guarantee the possibility of trotting and galloping, which will be considered on a case-by-case basis. In this case, the different equestrian levels will be managed with more guides in order to guarantee the pleasure of each rider, both beginner and a good equestrian level.
