If you like to spend a nice holiday with animals and a good conscience: This is the place to be. The animals are in good shape. The equipment fits and I had a very pleasant riding experience.

I did the four day, three night 'Loop of Ifthane' trek in October and loved it. The horses are incredibly well training and very well cared for. The trek took us through the desert, through a number of villages, and gradually down onto the beach. I think this trail would be even better in the spring time when it's not... More

4 days and 3 nights riding a beautifully turned out stallion, as all the stallions are, @Zouina Chevel riding establishment in Diabat. The love and level of care put into the animals is obvious by the immaculate cleanliness of the horses and premises. The horses are extremely well mannered and every aspect of the day is well organised from pairing... More

Zouina was the saving grace of Morocco for me. It is an all-stallion stable with lovely, lively horses. The staff catered to my needs as an advanced rider and i went out 3 days in a row with a personal guide and no other riders. The horses were lively and well looked after, Hidalgo was a dream to ride. The... More

What a place!? Me and my friend wanted to go for a ride in Morocco, but after seeing the horses in Marrakech, we lost interested. Then we looked online and found this place, and the ride was amazing! We got them to get us, and they were on tie and everything. When we got to the place we got welcomed... More

I rode here twice. I'm an experienced rider. The first time with my partner who is less experienced and then alone. They tailored the ride according to experience and how wonderful the two ranch dogs come along for the ride. I rode an Arab stallion who was a great character and I just loved it. I am a huge animal... More

My friend and I booked in advance a two day, 1 night camp. It was super. The guide, Abdul, catered for both extremes - advanced and a beginner. We trekked through forest from the stables close to Essaouira and had a super picnic lunch with the help of a support team - a driver and a cook. Best food we... More
