What you'll do

If you like, I will pick you up from your riad or hotel in the medina. We start (and finish) either in the village Diabat (just 5-10 minutes drive from the Medina of Essaouira). After you and the horses get know each other, I will give you a first introduction to make sure everyone feels safe and secure. The route starts with a ride on the long and beautiful sandy beach to a small original fishing village. After that we will see on the beach a small fresh water source, where animals (cows, camels, donkeys etc) drink at low tide. We will have a nice picnic break at the beach (and when the weather is good and warm, we will have the opportunity to go swimming with the horse). After lunch, the ride continues to the tall dunes of Cap sim. There you feel like in a small desert surrounded by sand dunes. After we ride through the dunes, we come through a forest full of mimosas (all yellow during the flowering season) and eucalyptus trees before we stop at an old beautiful ruin. In 1969 Jimi Hendrix visited this area and got inspiration for the song ‘castles made of sand’. We visit the remains of this castle. For everyone this is an unforgettable experience.

Ismail

My name is Ismail and horses are my passion. And I would love to share a beautiful ride between sky, land and ocean with my guests. I live in diabat, a peaceful village that is known for horses, next to essaouira (5-10 minutes drive from essaouira). As a young boy, my love for horses started with Jimmy, my first horse. He is my best friend for more than 15 years and I accompany him on almost every trip. All my horses are very close to my heart and a part of my family. Over the years i’ve hosted many people from all over the world. People who never rode a horse in their life before and very experienced rider. I carefully choose the right horse for each guest and respect all wishes, whether fast galloping or relaxed going... Kids, couples, families and large groups, they all had a unforgettable holiday experience during the trip.
