Description

Strode into equestrian heaven at a stud farm near Lake Badi, just 5 kilometers away from the bustling cityside. Alongwith 10 beautiful Marwari horses that are used for breeding and horse-riding tours, the ranch focuses also on organic farming and small scale livestock farming. The Ranch is owned and operated by Dinesh Ji, a specialist in the field of Marwari horse-care, and his wife Francine Jain - Rothuis, an anthropologist from the Netherlands. Apart from horse stables, the sustainably-managed 12-acre ranch has fruit orchards, fields, a lovely pond, comfortable stay setup and a restaurant. You’ll spend some time getting to know one of the most rare, spectacular breed of horses in the world, the Marwari. This proud, loyal and incredibly resilient breed was bred by Rajputs since the 12th century for speed, stamina and incredible bravery in a harsh environment. It’s also known for its curly ears that swing 180 degrees and touch each other at the tips. Get a feel of farm life by caring for these graceful beasts. Learn how to feed and groom them. This allows you to develop a relationship with the animals instead of approaching it directly for a ride. Next, you get to the exciting phase of suiting up for a ride. You’ll be assisted to dress up in riding boots, helmets, saddles and gloves, before getting astride your horse. A slow walk and trot within the ranch will help you get accustomed to the Marwari’s unique rehwal, a quick, four-beat lateral gait, which is smoother and more comfortable than a trot, used in the desert to cover long distances with greater comfort. Of course, you’ll break in at a slow pace, especially if you’re a complete novice. Once you’re comfortable on the horse (and he’s comfortable with you!) we set out together - under the guidance of Dinesh Ji, a master rider himself - for a delightful trail around Badi village. The thrill of the ride is enhanced by scenic, peaceful surroundings; the sight of the Aravalli's rising around you, the trees and the placid waters of the lake form the ideal countryside canvas to a wonderful bonding experience with a very special animal. This is the royal Udaipur version of a classic Western ritual.
