I wrote the company and they arranged a camel ride tour and picked me up the same day, which was very nice. I first thought I was gonna do the 3 hour trip, but since it was cold and just the same beach/forrest the whole tour I told my guide 1 hour would be fine. He questioned this decision three... More

I was impressed from the moment I was picked up from my Riad in Essaouira. The horses at Zouina Cheval are very well cared for. This was important to me as I have been riding elsewhere and this is not always the case. I am a horse lover and this organisation was professional, with nice tack, healthy cared for animals...

Riding with your family in the woods and heading towards the sound of the ocean is something that everyone should do. We rode 3 times here whilst in Essaouira - my wife and I (experienced riders) and our two boys (11 and 13, never been out of a paddock on horseback before). The horses - handsome Berber/Arab cross stallions -... More

If you're looking for a place to go horse riding, this is the one. Amazing people and the sweetest horses and camels. I did a two hour ride on the beach with Mohammad and had such an amazing time! The horses are well looked after and loved. They are all great for beginners and there really isn't a much better... More

We had an absolutely fantastic time on the 2 hour horse trek along the beach. The horses were beautiful and very well looked after. Our guide, Mohammed was fun, interesting and a lovely person. The scenery was stunning. I highly recommend zouina cheval and would definitely go riding with them again if I had more time in essaouira. Next time!

My boyfriend and I did the two hour tour with a picnic and it exceeded expectations! The stallions were amazing (I rode Hidalgo and my boyfriend, Ayour), very well trained and our guide was wonderful as well, you can tell that he really cares for the horses. Logistics were seamless (pickup and drop off). The tour was a nice mix... More

If you like to spend a nice holiday with animals and a good conscience: This is the place to be. The animals are in good shape. The equipment fits and I had a very pleasant riding experience.

I did the four day, three night 'Loop of Ifthane' trek in October and loved it. The horses are incredibly well training and very well cared for. The trek took us through the desert, through a number of villages, and gradually down onto the beach. I think this trail would be even better in the spring time when it's not... More

4 days and 3 nights riding a beautifully turned out stallion, as all the stallions are, @Zouina Chevel riding establishment in Diabat. The love and level of care put into the animals is obvious by the immaculate cleanliness of the horses and premises. The horses are extremely well mannered and every aspect of the day is well organised from pairing... More

Zouina was the saving grace of Morocco for me. It is an all-stallion stable with lovely, lively horses. The staff catered to my needs as an advanced rider and i went out 3 days in a row with a personal guide and no other riders. The horses were lively and well looked after, Hidalgo was a dream to ride.
