Mother and daughter, both of us ride and have horses at home. Impressed from start to finish. The horses (and dogs!) were in cracking condition. Dinesh is a particularly empathic, understanding and knowledgeable horseman, who bought out the best out of the horses who were impeccably mannered, yet had spark and humour to them. They tether the horses, but let them loose individually during the day. No worse or better than stabling at home. We learned more about nutrition and feeding then we ever did at pony club or from vets in the UK. The food and accommodation is basic but wholesome. Would suggest more adventurous/ advance riders do a 2-3day trek, the 1day ride is more of a sightseeing on horseback affair, and although interesting it is a little less challenging.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- DISCOVER RURAL INDIA! The Krishna Ranch is an excellent place for everyone who wants to get away from India's busy cities and discover rural India. The ranch is located at a very peaceful spot in the Arravali mountains, just 7 kilometers out of Udaipur city. The Krishna Ranch is not a typical resort, but a living farm with 14 beautiful Marwari horses, many other animals and lush fields with a variety of crops. The cottages at the ranch are clean and spacious, nicely decorated with regional handicrafts. We serve excellent vegetarian meals, mostly prepared from vegetables grown at our ecological farm. The ranch is a great starting point for short walks and bicycle rides to the surrounding villages. We will provide a simple map of the area and packed lunches for a pick-nick on the way are available. Guided treks to the remote parts of the Arravali-mountains are also possible. The beautiful and peaceful ranch is of course also a place to just sit back and relax. There is a small library with books and games. Roomrates include breakfast and pick up from Udaipu-city at the start of your stay and drop off at the end of your stay. The main activity organized by Krishna Ranch are professionally guided horse-safaris through the beautiful Arravali mountain-range. There are possibilities for everyone: from beginners to experienced riders, from 2,5 hours to 10 days! Of course all our horses and other animals are very well looked after by us and our dedicated staff. Note that rides/guided hikes need to be booked in advance. ... more less
