Morocco and its traditions… Horses,
nature, adventures, hacks and hikes, food...
In Morocco, religion forbids animal gelding which is why you will mostly meet stallions. Moroccan people are used to dealing with stallions and the fact that they are stallions never causes any problem.
Barb horses originate from North Africa and are mostly found among Berber people (Amazigh). They are famous for their resistance, especially under dry and hot climates. They’ve adapted perfectly to life in the desert.
Their reliable temperament makes them the ideal teachers. Quiet, gentle, well balanced and courageous, they are also very energetic and enjoy working.
The Barb horses are great all rounders, fast and with great stamina, they are commonly used for hacking, but also make great show horses, such as for the Fantasia shows (Cultural event of North Africa).
Our horses have been carefully selected and trained. They are sure footed and adapted to the hard dry Moroccon ground.
Saphir, born in 2012, is an Arab-Barb stallion with mostly Barb blood. He is still very young, which is why he is only ridden by experienced riders. He is well balanced, gentle, and loves to cuddle! He is a fast paced horse, making him an ideal trail partner.
Kimbo is a whole born around 2008-2012, with us since January 2020. Horse that we still discover, which seems strong and very nice. Surely an ideal horse for beginners but which can be appreciated by all riders.
Young bay whole, very promising. Full of energy, stepping forward and very kind. Given his young age, he is still a bit playful and needs a light rider. We reserve it for the moment for the guide. Horse born around 2017, with us since November 2019.
Mistral is a dark bay stallion, born in 2014. He just arrived at us! We can not wait to get to know him better. It is currently reserved for light riders because it must take a little weight and muscle.
With his head and his "pony" size, Mabrouk is quickly appreciated! However, he needs a good rider because he is still a little green and can have strong reactions. Very appreciated by experienced riders. Horse born around 2016.
