This ride makes us discover the Tafraout region with its spectacular and varied landscapes.

The ride ends at the ranch (return by truck for horses and taxi for riders) so the rider spent two days on the coast to take advantage of a more fertile ground for the faster gaits, the fabulous scenery from the top of the cliffs and the beach!

The rides are aimed at riders taking the three gaits and having a good practice of horses on all types of terrain. It is advisable to have a good physical condition. On average 6 hours of horse per day.
