Full description
This full-day activity is suitable for horse riders of all abilities, from beginner to advanced. Starting from the Ranch de Diabat, your guide will take you on a route that first runs along the river. Stop to see the ruins of the Black Sultan’s palace before riding along a sandy beach. Admire the views of the Portuguese castle on the island of Mogador. Riders of intermediate or advanced ability will have the option of a longer tour, heading a bit inland. After a picnic lunch at noon, you’ll ride along the sand dunes, past fishermen’s cottages, and to a fresh water spring. The tour continues through a forest and then returns to the ranch. The pace of the tour will be adapted according to your preference and ability.

Great stables, lovely horses, good guide and lovely scenery.

The horses at the stables are all stallions but were well behaved and my small berber x arab horse was lovely. Well kept stables, choice of hats, good guide and lovely scenery to ride around Essaouira. Would recommend and go again. Staff emailed about my pick up quickly and were very helpful and flexible.

Super Tagesausritt!

Ich habe mehrere Ausritte von dort zusammen mit meiner Tochter gemacht. Zum Testen erst mal eine Stunde. Die Organisation und der Ausritt waren so perfekt, dass wir dann den Tagesausritt zusätzlich gebucht haben. Die Anlage macht einen sehr gepflegten Eindruck. Nadine, eine deutsche Reitbegleiterin, hat gezielt die richtigen Fragen gestellt, um festzustellen, wie es um unsere Reiterfahrung steht, um dann die richtigen Pferde für uns auszuwählen. Das hat super geklappt. Die Pferde waren sehr gut und eben nicht so heruntergerittene Schulpferde. Die Ausritte waren abwechslungsreich und unterhaltsam. Ich kann diesen Veranstalter zusammen mit Nadine nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen.
