Welcome to Colorful Rajasthan

Feel the thrill of riding through the arid desert landscape, lush forests and rural villages. Witness the natural marvel of thousands of migrating Demoiselle cranes roosting at Khichan, and follow time-worn camel footpaths to secret picnic spots. Our India Horseback Riding Tour offers unrepeatable adventure from leopard tracking to luxurious tented safari camp accommodations. For some extra pampering, there are also six nights spent in boutique hotels!


An Immersive Way to Experience India

Steeped in History and Horses

This ride combines the vibrant culture and history of India with the opportunity to enjoy the unique and friendly Marwari horses. Fall in love with spicy deep-fried kachori, and enjoy a fragrant chai in the shadows of the rising sun. This itinerary allows you to experience ancient Rajasthani traditions, canter, banter and see wild Nilgai antelope and chinkara gazelles!

Loved everything. The horses were excellent, we definitely got in a lot of riding. Ajeet and our guides took really good care of us. Our female guide, Neha Arora, went above and beyond. India will really capture your heart!”
