Horse Safari India
Marwari - the desert horse of Rajasthan. Young horses are bought
and reared in the hills. His dexterity in negotiating the narrow bridle paths
in the hills - every manoeuvre so safe and simple, has to be experienced to
The Marwari has a beautiful head crowned by perky
lure shaped ears meeting at the tips. In line with his desert elements when

Nainital is situated in the Kumaon hills where thick wooded
hills, snow capped mountains in the distance and clear pine scented air were
a respite from the hot steamy plains.
It was here that Col. James Edward Corbett was born. His love for the richness
of the region and sensitivity to the miseries of the simple hill folk, were
to shape his life as a courageous hunter of the man-eating tigers & leopards
that plagued the villagers. Later on he became a visionary conservationist and
Corbett National Park is rightfully named after the man who was instrumental
in its creation. It is here that the first three non days of riding are spent.
With Jeeps and Elephants as modes of transport, one gets an excellent opportunity
to examine, survey and enjoy the diverse flora and fauna of the Park.
The Forest Lodge and Tiger Camp provide sumptuous meals, clean comfortable bed
and bath and an ambience that matches the wilderness. The first phase of the
ride is easy, through thick peripheral reserve forests of Sal. Canter or gallop
on the soft tracks and the opportunity to stop and examine whatever catches
your fancy, is always there. Camping sites provide all the magic of the Jungle,
the nocturnal sounds, bright lit skies and tales around a crackling camp fire,
all make a heady cocktail.
The second phase of the ride begins the ascent into the hills. It provides the
thrilling adventure of an uphill climb on narrow bridle paths, breathtaking
views across growing hills, valleys and gorges and the changing vegetation at
every turn. The Lodge at Pangot provides great comfort after a good days riding.
The descent into Betalghat is equally dramatic.
