GUEST REVIEWS
Johanna (France) - October 2021

Very, very nice week in Jordan on horseback. Memories full of head and for a long time.
The ride was wonderful, the mare very very good. The landscapes were exceptional and the camps, each one more beautiful than the next. A very good atmosphere despite the large group. The team that followed us was also very friendly and knew how to set the mood on a daily basis.
