Wadi Rum Horses

Wadi Rum Rd, Jordan

While the camel is prized by the local Bedouins, no desert animal is more romantic than the pure-bred Arabian horse. See for yourself at Wadi Rum Horses, a stud farm and horse-trekking company on the desert highway just outside Wadi Rum proper. Here, the team raises fine stallions and mares so beautiful even the Emir of Dubai is an admirer. For experienced riders, the company can also arrange short excursions in the Rum area, as well as fully supported, multi-day riding and camping treks.
