This 6-day horse riding holiday in Morocco will take you to the heart of the region of Essaouira. It crosses day by day forests of argan trees, small traditional Berber villages, a lake surrounded by cultivations, deep gorges, mountains, fields of dune, wild beaches and cliffs along the Atlantic coast, and small fishing villages. 

A complete immersion in the region of Essaouira that may be organized all year round due to the mild climate in this region (never too hot/never too cold).

I discovered Morocco on horseback in 2006 and I never left it since then! I practiced horse riding at club level for 15 years and then started to discover the world on horseback. I also led many horse rides along the bridle paths of France, my home country. I ensure coordination and logistics and accompanies some trails. I manage all booking requests and will help you to organize your stay with us.
