Set out on an extraordinary journey through the captivating landscapes of Morocco with our exclusive horse riding holiday, designed for intermediate and experienced riders alike.

Begin your expedition in the picturesque Skoura palm grove, near Ouarzazate, where your equestrian adventure will start and end in a captivating loop. Along the way, experience the magic of encountering nomadic tribes and their majestic herds, forming connections that transcend borders and time.

Witness the splendor of the almond valley in full bloom, painting the landscape with hues of pink and white from late January to late February, a spectacle that promises to captivate your senses. Marvel at the architectural wonders of the superb kasbahs, each one a testament to Morocco's rich heritage and storied past.

As you journey through the palm groves, with the snow-capped peaks of the Atlas Mountains looming in the distance, savor moments of tranquility and awe-inspiring beauty.

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.

    It was perfect for beginners. Learning to throttle on the beach was a wonderful experience. We felt very safe and had a lot of fun. Thanks for the great experience!

    Just returned from a 3-day ride and it was amazing! The scenery, including sand dunes and gallops on long beaches, was breathtaking. The staff and guides were incredibly helpful, taking great care of us and the horses. The traditional food was delicious, thanks to the cook. Special thanks to guide Khalid and organizer Sophie for their excellent care and organization. The horses were fantastic - beautiful, well-trained stallions. We'll definitely be returning!

    I couldn't be more impressed with our experience. I'm an experienced rider, but my brother had never been on a horse before. The company ensured our safety and comfort by not mixing groups, allowing us to adjust the pace to our comfort levels. They provided helmets, chaps, and safety measures like a safety line for beginners. The stallions were incredible, responsive, and made us feel comfortable and confident. My brother quickly became a fast learner, even cantering on the beach by himself. The guide was kind, patient, and clearly loves the horses. Highly recommended!
