Horse riding in Jordan is another way for adventure seekers to discover the natural beauty of this country. Combined with a visit to the ancient city of Petra and a float in the Dead Sea, a horseback riding holiday in Jordan is the experience of a lifetime.
South of Jordan treasures one of the most impressive desert landscapes in the world: Wadi Rum. This vast, echoing and colorful desert is a true paradise for nature lovers.
The horse ride takes you from the mountainous area around Petra with stunning views all the way to the vast sand plains and steep rock formations of Wadi Rum.
Horse Riding Jordan offers two itineraries: 4 days & 6 days riding from Petra to Wadi Rum.
You will explore the Kharaza area, the northern part of the Wadi Rum desert with its natural rock bridges, the "Mushroom Rock", ancient inscriptions and colorful sand dunes.
You will enjoy long canters on endless sandy tracks through beautiful valleys.
You will enjoy all of the above PLUS you will also explore the protected area of Wadi Rum where you will see more impressive rock bridges, you will ride through stunning canyons and over mudflats perfect for long canters.
You will ride local Arabic horses; they are not very tall but they are extremely strong and sturdy and perfectly fit to work in tough conditions in the desert.
You can choose from a different range of horses, from easy and quiet to pretty active and highly enthusiastic.
All of them are healthy, strong, loved and being taken very good care of. (Why is it important?)
Riders must be fit, able to trot, canter and gallop and have experience with trail riding.
Guests are allowed to take care of their own horse, giving water and food, brushing and saddling at each stop.
