Starting and finishing at the very comfortable Terres d’Amanar you follow mountain trails & paths and ride at an altitude between 1,500 metres & 3,100 metres. Amongst the high barren peaks are woodlands of pine oak and cedar open pastureland and small lakes. This trail can only be done in summer because many of these trails and passes are closed in winter due to snow.

The horses are Barb Arabian and mainly stallions. They are well schooled and behave well on the trail and the only thing you need to remember (as on all trails but of even more importance when riding stallions) is to keep your distance from other horses at all times.

The tack is good quality English-style saddles.

Guests normally assist with grooming and tacking up their horse but assistance is on hand at all times.

The riding is a mix of paces to suit the terrain and is fast in places. You need to be confident riding in open spaces and in control at a fast pace. You must also be physically fit as well as riding fit since there is some walking on foot on steeper descents. The trails are not suitable for nervous riders.The terrain varies. In some places it is very rocky and suitable only for walking. In other areas it may be very soft and also not suitable for fast riding. Where possible there are opportunities for trots and canters which may be along hard tracks.

The first and last night is at Terres D'Amanar and the other nights are in tented camps which are moved on each day. A support vehicle meets you each day for lunch and then goes ahead to set up camp.

When camping you stay in two person dome tents with a porch for baggage. There is a large mess tent for eating and relaxing and a chemical loo. There is also a  separate shower tent and you are provided with a large bucket of hot water for showering.

Weather & Climate

The high interior can be visited year-round, although it does get cold in winter. The Toubkal Trail runs in the summer months when the mountains are clear of frost and snow. On the first and last day of the trail it may feel hot, but once into the mountains, the temperatures are pleasant.

Guest Review

The horses were top quality, in great condition (no sores which unfortunately can be all too common on some riding holidays) and very willing and able to cope with the challenging terrain.
I cannot praise Rashid and his team too highly - all very genuine guys.

You will be riding amongst some seriously big mountains. It amazes me how people first settled in these inaccessible places.

My Top Tip

Make sure you have comfortable boots which you can walk in because there are times when you need to lead your horse on foot.
