Our herd consists of seven safari horses that are well accustomed to the ecosystem we’re riding in. Our stables accommodate a variety of different breeds and crossbreeds. Most of our horses are barefoot. All horses’ vaccinations and other medicals are up to date. Their feeding plan is carefully adjusted to a change in workload, age and climate. Our horses are regularly trimmed by a farrier and checked by a specialised dentist. You can read more about our horses on the “Meet The Horses” page.
Exclusive rides are available on request. Beginners are welcome for a relaxed ride around. Only riders of the same skill level will be mixed unless they are family or a group of friends.
Yes, travel insurance cover is compulsory. And while we carry public liability insurance and take all reasonable precautions, we insist that you travel with full travel and medical insurance for the duration of your holiday, including coverage of cancellation and curtailment, missed departure or delays, stolen, lost or damaged luggage, medical expenses, personal liability and activities (safari driving, bushwalking and horse riding).
It’s strongly recommended that every rider wears a hard riding hat on safari. Ride Mara will provide hard hats or hats. If you choose not to wear a hard riding hat, this is at your own risk. Please check if your holiday/medical insurance covers you in an accident if you are not wearing a riding hat. The safari guides always carry a radio and mobile phone for communication during the ride.
