Marwari Horses

Turn aside from the beaten tracks going on Rajput’s well-trodden path.

Horse Ride
Turn aside from the beaten tracks going on Rajput’s well-trodden path.

There are more than thousand ways to discover Rajasthan, but going on with a pure breed of Marwari, as Rajas (Kings) could have during the medieval time, it already treads in their “hoofsteps”.

It is already entered in their history and find out palaces hidden in unconquered forts.

It is already in contact with a past perfume from the Maharajas time.

Far from common tourism, our team propose you to turn aside from the beaten tracks and explore horseback, safety and going on with your own rhythm, discovering countryside noted with the chivalrous history of brave Rajputs warriors.

We offer choice either to guide you with 3 carefully prepared itineraries or show you the way to organize your own trip, fitted in with your feelings.
