Horse Safari

Horse India welcomes groups of between 4 - 12 riders.  We can cater for all riding abilities, but to get the most from the holidays you should be comfortable at canter in open countryside.  We have a rider weight limit of 90kg.

 You can book your own private group, join one of our open groups, or if short on time ask us for Day rates.

The most popular time to ride in Rajasthan is between October and March however, the  rides can be booked for any time of year to suit your required dates, and will be tailored to suit the weather conditions (summer heat / monsoon rain etc) as well as your riding abilities and requirements.  Families with children, and non-riding partners welcome. 

Where are we? You may have heard of the 'Golden Triangle' - well we ride the bit in the middle!

Equidistant between the blue city of Jodhpur, the lake city of Udaipur, and within easy reach of the pink city of Jaipur.

Join us to ride Marwari horses in their homeland.
