Horse riding safari /trek - any recommendations ?

Looking to do a horse ride trek ( 2 / 3 days) July next year. Can anyone recommend a company. Thank you

Top company for this is probably Offbeat Safaris. Very nice people, great camps, a beautiful ranch house and a lovely old Rift Valley base.

Offbeat are superb. If they can't offer what you're looking for, have a look at Safaris Unlimited maasaimara.com/activities/…safaris-are-cool

Have you thought of a camel safari? Have a look at:

For horses also have a look at:

Fl410's recommendation for Gordon Church and Roadwarrior's for the stables at Ol Donyo Lodge pretty much covers it I think. They're all good - as far as I know! (not being a rider)

Thanks for all the input. Greatly appreciated. Will follow this up. I am suprised more horse trek companies (and this applies all around the world) do not offer 3 day (2 night) rides. 7 to 10 days on a trek seems a lot of time, when you only have 2 weeks in total. Cheers

It's partly due to the logistics of getting the horses out to the riding safari locations. Financially it wouldn't be worth transporting 10-15 horses, the mobile camps and all the equipment all the way to the Mara just for three days. I believe Ride Kenya, in the Chyulus, offers shorter treks and we have several good options here in Nairobi, and one down in Maanzoni, for shorter hacks and treks.
