Ranch Rider adds Jordan to its list of riding holiday destinations for 2022

Friday 1 July 2022

Leading riding holiday specialist, Ranch Rider is adding Jordan to its collection. This is the tour operator's first foray into Asia, the new horseback adventures including opportunities to follow in the footsteps of the Nabateans and the Bedouin. Both Jordan holidays last for 10 days and include six days of riding, with the option of a Red Sea or Amman extension. Prices start from £1,500pp (two sharing).

Sandra Potter, Marketing Director at Ranch Rider comments: "Whether we are talking about its wealth of history, dating back to the Paleolithic period, archaeological treasures or otherworldly lunar-like landscapes, Jordan is larger than life. Almost made to order for the post pandemic era, on our horseback journeys you are free to explore unhindered.

"For example, each of our rides includes the option to canter across lengthy stretches of the Barragh Canyon, the longest canyon in Wadi Rum. Authentic travel at its best, we traverse vast swathes of desert with the Bedouin tribe, who are our guides and camp hosts, many of the locations we visit known only to these nomadic people."

Many of the travellers who come to Jordan are looking to retrace the journey of Captain T.E. Lawrence, the iconic 1960s film, Lawrence of Arabia, which was loosely based on his adventures, putting the country on the map. The legendary site of Wadi Rum with its towering canyons and the Rose Palace of Petra remain a huge draw to this day. All of Ranch Rider's Jordan riding holidays start and finish in Amman with guided visits to Madaba and Petra.
