Heaps of riding options, and definitely worth doing. The staff are multi lingual and very helpful. The horses are amazing. Recommend you do this when you visit Essaouria HInt: book, suitable footwear and clothing, camera, and just enjoy it - you will NOT forget this experience

I wrote the company and they arranged a camel ride tour and picked me up the same day, which was very nice. I first thought I was gonna do the 3 hour trip, but since it was cold and just the same beach/forrest the whole tour I told my guide 1 hour would be fine. He questioned this decision three... More

I was impressed from the moment I was picked up from my Riad in Essaouira. The horses at Zouina Cheval are very well cared for. This was important to me as I have been riding elsewhere and this is not always the case. I am a horse lover and this organisation was professional, with nice tack, healthy cared for animals...

Riding with your family in the woods and heading towards the sound of the ocean is something that everyone should do. We rode 3 times here whilst in Essaouira - my wife and I (experienced riders) and our two boys (11 and 13, never been out of a paddock on horseback before). The horses - handsome Berber/Arab cross stallions -... More

We had an absolutely fantastic time on the 2 hour horse trek along the beach. The horses were beautiful and very well looked after. Our guide, Mohammed was fun, interesting and a lovely person. The scenery was stunning. I highly recommend zouina cheval and would definitely go riding with them again if I had more time in essaouira. Next time!
