Horse Riding activities in Jordan
An alternative and memorable mode of four-legged transport through Wadi Rum and surrounding areas is by horse. A hack costs around JD20 per hour. These trips are for people who have some experience of riding, and novices should not underestimate the challenge of riding high-spirited Arab horses in open country. Among the agencies or guides who can organise such an expedition is Rum Horses, a professional French-run trekking, camel- and horse-trekking agency located on the approach road to Wadi Rum visitor centre, about 10km from the Desert Highway. Look for a signboard beside the road.
The Royal Racing Club holds horse and camel races in spring and summer, and offers horse-riding classes. Details are available from the club, located off the Desert Highway and on the way to Queen Alia airport.
