Our journey starts in Delhi, from where we travel into the Shekawati Region and stay in a beautiful local Haveli. At the second day meet the horses and have a short casual ride. The next day we start our ride from town to town with daily average riding distances about 35 kms with 4-6 hours in the saddle per day with a break for picnic lunch. We pass small towns and get in close contact with the people and the culture. It´s a unique expierience to explore the original India. The topography changes from day to day, starting with large sand dunes and sandy tracks, then changing into a more flat area where the soil is richer and plant life more vigorous. The nights we spend in our comfortable camp or in local Havelis and luxurious Hotels like Lalgarh Palace or Gangan Mahal Palace. Our ride is accompanied by our Jeeps, so Non-Riders can also join the Group and enjoy this awesome experience.

 

Our trail ride ends in Bikaner, where we visit the beautiful Fort and make some Sightseeing.  From there we travel to Jaipur, make again some Sightseeing and visit a typical Indian market. We get the chance to play some Stick and Ball on well trained Polo horses and have dinner in the Polo Club. Our unique journey ends in Delhi.
