India pulsates with a dazzling array of rich culture and vibrant landscapes. From the hot sultry beaches of the southern coast to the imposing snow-capped peaks of the north, India's spectacular terrain is perfect for a horse riding adventure.
Fit, adventurous riders can experience the challenge of riding in Ladakh, a small mountainous corner of North West India known as the Trans-Himalaya. Camp in the wilderness of high altitude Changtang plateau on an epic trail ride. In contrast, discover the splendour of a riding holiday in colourful Rajasthan. Ride majestic, spirited Marwari horses on a memorable journey, staying in converted forts and palaces and lavish camps, immersing yourself in the stories and culture of your knowledgeable hosts. Confident riders will delight in fast pacey rides discovering a variety of landscapes, from exquisitely carved temples rising majestically out of arid desert, to the lush fertile Aravali hills. Traverse rocky gorges on these sure-footed, magical endurance horses with their characteristic curved ears and canter through rural farmland and acacia forests. Combine trail rides with visits to seasonal camel and horse fairs or as an alternative to longer treks, simply stay at one of the many hotels in this region which organise safari style day rides and lessons.
From relaxing rides through the lush rain forest and fertile tea plantations of Assam in the north east, to fast beach riding along the endless soft white sands of multicultural Goa, mesmerising India will leave you spellbound.
