Rum Horses

Lonely Planet review

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.
