Princess Trails is an Indo-European family business, which aims to provide our guests with the best quality and most unique equestrian experience possible. We combine Indian hospitality with European standard of horse keeping. Our main concern and highest priority is the safety of horse and rider.Virendra & Ute organize horseback safaris, horse riding, riding lessons and related services. On our farm we have comfortable Swiss Tents for our guests wishing to stay overnight.Our Horseback Safaris usually go along off-the-beaten tracks through the hilly landscape of the Aravalli Mountains, the endless plains of Malwa or into the fringes of the Thar Desert and the Rajasthani Bagar. The riders can experience unspoiled nature and the unique culture of the hill tribes of Rajasthan. Our destinations are places of historical or cultural significance such as the medieval town of Chittor or the hill fort of Kumbhalgarh.Some of our Safaris are connecting major festivals in Rajasthan such as the Pushkar Camel Fair and are bound to certain dates. Many of our safaris are also going through a number of wildlife sanctuaries such as the Kumbhalgarh Wildlife Sanctuary or the Sita-Mata Wildlife Sanctuary so our riders can enjoy the spectacular Indian flora and fauna. We believe in the principle of natural horsemanship. That means we keep our horses as naturally as possible and care for them with love and affection. Our horses are properly fed, shoed and have fitting, comfortable high-class saddle tack. We do not make use of underfed and untrained village horses! In fact we take pride in the point that by now we own a stable of finest Marwari horses, some of them bred and trained by us.Most of our horses are Marwari horses, indigenous to this region, perfectly adapted to the geographic and climatic conditions of Rajasthan and very comfortable to ride. Their ears are distinctively curved inwards in a lyre-shape, which makes them unique and easily recognizable. Like many other ancient breeds some of them have a forth gait, the so-called Revaal, a type of rack, very relaxing for the rider.We have horses for both beginners and advanced riders and also provide riding lessons if necessary. All our horses are forward going, well trained and a pleasure to ride. Some are ridden bitless with a hackamore or just a halter.All our safaris are organized as close to nature as possible and are eco-friendly. We use local supplies and groceries and prevent unnecessary waste. Cooking and lighting is done with gas as not to cut done forest wood.Our safaris provide rural employment as we occupy local people as helpers, guides or artists. We strongly emphasize local culture and try to help preserve it in giving the people a sense of value and pride. Our main aim is to show the unique culture and ecology of Rajasthan to our guests and connect this with an unforgettable equestrian experience.

I booked this for my family as my daughter is a keen horse rider and I'm a total novice but we all wanted to try it. It's a lovely trek, nice and peaceful away from the chaos of the city, and the horses are delightful. I take on board some of the other reviews but if you go with no... More

If you are near Udaipur and enjoy horseback riding, definitely take the time to have a trail ride. I arranged an early morning ride and the team was incredibly helpful despite my late notice. The trail was beautiful and the ride was catered to my level of experience such that I fully recommend it for both very experienced riders as... More

This was a beautiful way to see the countryside around Udaipur. I was with a group of five, ranging from never-been-on-a-horse to experienced rider. The owner took the time to establish each of our skill levels and proceeded accordingly. We were a bit late making our decision to go horse-riding, but compared a few companies and were all pleased we... More

Having not been in the saddle for nearly 10 years, I figured that a 2 hour ride would be enough - and it was, though not from the riding point of view! When you do this - GO EARLY... the heat gets intense really quickly. Other than the heat, it was brilliant. I saw lots of local wildlife (once it... More

I went on a multi-day trek, about 2.5 days of riding. My trip also included the Hol festival, which is not to be missed. The camp was comfortable enough and we were well looked after. The scenery was desert, but it was certainly beautiful in its way, and I would love to see it other times of year. The horses... More

We had a 2 hour trek on the most well cared for horses that are so beautiful and great to ride. We were really well looked after and our horse matched to our experience. We wish we could have done one of the longer rides! Maybe next time Great way to explore the local area, go early it gets hot!

I did a half-day ride with Princess Trails - taking us through rural villages and countryside in the course of four hours. Having not ridden for a while four hours seemed quite a long time and my bum was a bit sore! It was just me and the guide (who didn't speak much English, but was lovely) and I really... More
