7-Day Trip Itenerary

Days 1-3

During the first three days of your stay, you will spend time connecting with your horse and working closely with Dr. Katsamanis in a state of the art, newly constructed indoor arena to establish the basic foundational principles of the alchemy of lightness. You’ll practice groundwork and proper lunging before moving on to connect with your horse in the saddle. After day 3, the goal is for you to become deeply connected with your mount so you can continue your tour feeling completely safe and in tune with your horse.

After your daily lesson, you’ll have plenty of time to relax and take in the beauty and rich history of this grand Castle and it’s breathtaking surroundings. Lounge by the pool, stop by the spa or enjoy a delicious gourmet meal- your time is your own!

Days 4-6

After settling in to your new surroundings and establishing the basics of lightness during the first three days of your stay, you’ll split your time between riding lessons in the morning and exciting afternoon safari excursions to satisfy your appetite for adventure and give you a taste of the local Marwari riding culture. You may ride to a nearby village or explore a wildlife sanctuary to spot some of the most amazing and exotic animals on the planet!

On longer trips, you’ll make a stop along the way for a catered, sit-down meal and get the chance to enjoy live entertainment including traditional music and dance while you dine.

Day 7

No trip to India is complete without a visit to one of the world’s most fantastic destinations (and one of the seven world wonders) the Taj Mahal! For the last leg of your stay, you’ll get the chance to travel to the city of Agra to visit the world famous destination that attracts millions of visitors every year. It’s the perfect ending to an unforgettable week full of fun, learning, and horses, immersed in the epicenter of India’s equestrian history and culture.
