Every person should go on a trip to the desert at least once in their life. We give you the opportunity to do it on horseback: an extraordinary experience.
You don't need to be an expert horse rider to understand the enormous benefits of horse riding : at any level you can realize how much this activity can benefit the body and mind.
The horse's gait , even when walking , passively stimulates various muscles of the body, starting from the legs: the lower part of the body works to maintain balance, while the back and abdominal muscles are constantly under strain, even if lightly. to maintain good posture, upright and not squatting.
In short, horseback riding is a perfect way to keep the body in training and regenerate the mind .
Far from nature and immersed in the frenetic pace of modern life, we find ourselves often stressed, tired and sometimes nervous. It is no secret that contact with nature brings innumerable positive consequences on productivity , creativity and above all on mood .
The horse is the perfect companion to perceive these benefits: in horseback riding not only are you immersed in nature, but the security given by the relationship with the animal gives us serenity and relaxation, to allow us to breathe deeply clean air, elaborating the information provided by the landscape.
The preparation of the horse , as well as the connection that is created, have a beneficial effect on self-esteem and self-awareness, as they teach mutual respect and stimulate awareness of being able to control such a majestic and strong animal, a metaphor for many aspects of our life.
Horseback riding not only brings us closer to nature but also to ourselves , giving us the opportunity to engage body and mind in a tiring but particularly positive activity.
Trekking in the desert
During our excursions we slowly immerse ourselves in the desert . From the valley of the Draa River, where there is still rich vegetation, we move further and further away from civilization, traffic, noise and confusion. The vegetation becomes very sparse, but there is always some frugal plant to observe. Thus we enter a nature that is completely foreign to us. Infinite expanses in which we become very small and seem to disappear. The desert presents itself with its different faces: a sea of stones, rocks, gravel and stones, to get to cross the more famous sand with the colors of the sun.
Our night camp consists of typical Berber tents. At night it can be very cold and sometimes a sandstorm can be expected, but the view of the sky, dotted with dense and bright stars, is priceless. No headlights, no car noises, nothing to disturb.
We slowly return to civilization, enriched by many experiences.
Experiences at the tireless side of our Berber horses , which carry us safely up hills and slopes, facing expanses of almost boundless landscapes.
This horse trekking activity is among the most requested, because it allows you to immerse yourself totally in the desert territories, admiring, while on the saddle, panoramas that will remain indelible in your memory and in your photographic shots.
A unique activity of its kind, which we at the Ranch love to share with you all the way.
