General Horse Trekking Information

General Information about your trek

Daily Departure

Departure each day is at 10am, you have 1.5 hours to eat breakfast and prepare for the ride. A break for lunch at 1.30pm to eat. In the evening you arrive at the bivouac at 17.00pm. The bivouac is organized by our guides and prepared for your arrival.

Luggage

The guide in the jeep will take care of your luggage. So it is important to bring with you a sleeping bag, money and personal papers/items, tee-shirt with long sleeves, sun lotion, and any medical supplies. Do not forget a water-bottle.

Overnight Camping

Your lodging, throughout your excursion, will be in collective tents for 6 to 7 people or, if you wish it, Canadian tent/igloo for 2 persons. Your meals will be prepared by a cook who will introduce you to the subtleties of the Moroccan kitchen. Your bivouacs are equipped with a shower.

Meals

Food is good quality tasty traditional fare prepared over camp fires on the overnight treks. Any dietary requirements need to be requested in advance so menus can be prepared for any special diets or food allergies.

Equestrian Issues

Each horse is equipped with a randonnee-saddle and saddle-bags, which will enable you to transport your picnic and the personal effects necessary for your day on horseback. For sensitive riders it is recommended to bring a sheepskin cover for protection in the saddle. Do not forget your water bottle. Helmets are available but riders may wish to bring their own thereby ensuring they are appropriate in terms of size and safety. In order to participate in the treks, you need to be comfortable in all three gaits and have experience of riding outside. It is best that you have already done a full day on horseback. If you wish, you can arrive at the ranch a few days before the trek to benefit from lessons and determine your level.

In the Atlantic Coast and Desert Regions it should be noted that stallions are widely ridden since it is illegal to castrate horses in Morocco. We are informed that stallions are safe to ride and that the horses are very carefully trained, but you may wish to seek further advice on this matter.

Insurance

It is important to note that clients taking part in treks ensure that they are properly equipped, sufficiently fit and appropriately insured for accidents, medical repatriation, mountain rescue and repatriation helicopter.
