Meet & Assist clients upon arrival, and drive directly to their destination (Petra hotel), check-in, dinner & overnight . Tonight your host/guide will meet you in your hotel and you can ask him questions about your tour. He will also explain the program, discuss more details, ask for special wishes and diets and about the riding experience of each client, so he can select the correct horses suitable for each rider.  Also this evening the guide gives each rider a Jordanian scarf (Kafihe).
 
Day 2: Horse ride day
After breakfast at hotel - all the guests will have a transfer around 08.30 am from the hotel in Petra to the stable of Jessica and Rami (10 minutes drive). Please dress in horse riding outfit and take the needed things with you for the riding (helmet, sun cream and camera). We will provide water bottles for drinking.
 
At arrival at the stable Rami or the guide will select a suitable horse for each rider.
The horses are already brushed and saddled.
After all the riders have a horse and got on, the tour will start from the stable and takes you directly into the mountains with great view over Petra. The beginning is rocky area and we always recommend wearing a riding helmet on the first day.
 
The first part this morning will be riding for 3 hours via the mountains, via the back of Taybet, through the beautiful Rajev village, where will be the first lunch under Prince Hassan castle, at an area with natural springs and tree gardens with amazing views over Petra and Wadi Araba.
 
The support team is already there and laid out the mattresses and the ropes/chains for the horses.
 
When the guests arrive; the horses receive care first with water and food and then the guests can relax and will be served lunch and drinks.
 
The lunch/rest will be for about 2 hours (depending on the time of the year with daylight)
After lunch the ride is about 2 -2.5 hours via mountain area, the viewpoint of Dlaaga and then descending down to Wadi Thugra, there will be more possibilities for trotting and cantering and the riders will be already used to their horses by now.
 
We make camp in Wadi Thugra! When we arrive, again the horses are tied first and the saddles are taken off, the horses are given water and food, then the guests can set up their tents. Tea is already made and by the time everyone sits down, dinner will be served on a table (small buffet style). If there is wood, a campfire is made and the first evening under the starts can be enjoyed.
 
Day 3: Horse ride day
Breakfast is usually served around 07.30 – 08.00 am, the guests take down their tent, brush and saddle their horses and the riding usually starts at 09.00 – 09.30 am.The jeep will be loaded again and will catch up with the group later and drive towards the lunch location where they will all meet again.The riding will be via a small Bedouin village into a desert area, the riding will be about 2.5 hours until the 3 trees for lunch, the only shady place in this area.
The rest for lunch will be about 3 hours and again, first the horses are taken care of, but of course the mattresses and tea is ready for the guests and soon after lunch is served. Most of the time after lunch the riders will take a short nap in the shade.
 
After the lunch, everyone brushes and saddles his horses and the riding will be now via the town Humayma, here we cross the Desert High Way. We get off the horses and take them by hand. Because of the speed  bumps the traffic is slow in the area and easy to cross.
 
On the other side, everyone will get on and then we ride into the Kharaza area of Wadi Rum, the north area. Here is also a nice opportunity for a trot and canter. The riding is about 2 - 2.5 hours to the camp location. The second night we always camp in a beautiful U shape rock and sand area with bushes. From here when it is full moon, you can see the moon rising over the mountains and in the morning a beautiful sunrise.
 
Here for sure a campfire is made this evening and everyone is taken care off. The sand is soft and the horses love to roll in it. Also for the tents it is a nice area to set up.
Enjoy!
 
Day 4: Horse ride day
After breakfast, everyone brushes and saddles the horses and the third day of riding begins in a very  stunning part of the desert, also a part where it is not busy with tourism at all.
 
Today we will see a small rock bridge, the "Mushroom", a nice path for cantering, then again 2 rock bridges and inscriptions. The riding will be 2 – 2,5 hours until the lunch location. We have made sure this is in the shade. Again it is time to relax, enjoy the lunch, maybe a small nap, or take your time to make pictures and enjoy the scenery.
 
After lunch we cross into a sandy area with a nice long canter path. By now everyone knows his/her horse and can enjoy a nice long canter through the desert. In this area the sand has many colors and it is very nice for taking pictures while riding. The riding will be 2,5 - 3 hours until the camp location, this night we stay in a small canyon out of the wind and nice and sandy for the horses and the tents.
 
Camp is made, the horses taken care of and then the dinner will be served and a campfire will be made.
 
Day 5: Horse ride day
Last day of riding! After breakfast we brush and saddle the horses and ride via the mudflat, where we can do a gallop with the horses, 2 by 2. Again this is a beautiful area. We ride towards the desert village of Disi.
 
There is a area with natural springs and this has made a beautiful oasis in the desert with high trees, grass, water and a small pond for swimming if the weather is good. Where the lunch is prepared the horses can be washed with the water hoses, they will enjoy the water after a few days desert and the horses love to eat the grass. Most of the riders enjoy this part very much. While the lunch is served the horses are drying in the sun.A small heaven on earth for all!
 
After lunch we ride via the mud flat, where we can do a good canter! Then we ride into the last part of the desert; also with a nice gallop before we let the horses to walk to cool down before reaching the set camp for the last night. The camp is called Oasis Desert Camp, the horses are tight in the beginning area, while the guests can have a warm shower and a bed to sleep in tonight. Dinner is served and if wished, we can play music this evening. Have a nice evening, the last evening in the desert.
