Photo from the Sahara Desert Trails (Morocco) ride.

Morocco , whilst only a few hours away from the UK, has a rich culture so different to our own which seems to us very exotic. Arab, Berber, African and European influences have made this country very fascinating to visit. The Islamic deeply traditional culture is so unfamiliar to us. With both Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines and with a rugged mountainous interior, the country remained independent for centuries. Its history, climate and geography appear more closely related to the Mediterranean than to the rest of Africa so it is often difficult to believe exactly where you are.

Morocco boasts both snowcapped mountains and sandy deserts, fertile plains and long white beaches. It has so much to offer visitors with its ancient ruins and modern resorts and horse riding is one way to explore this fascinating country. There is a great choice of landscape in which to ride - the mountains, the lush highland valleys, the palm groves and the sandy expanse of the desert with its oases interspersed with evocative old cities.

Quarzazate is the capital of the South and is dominated by the Atlas Mountains to the North. It is a popular tourist destination - its dry hot climate and well connnected position make in an ideal base for exploring the south. Many films are shot here including Lawrence of Arabia because of the amazing landscape and diverse countryside and the magnificent horses. Horse riding in Morocco has a long history and the country produces some fine horses.
