Following the adventures in the golden deserts of Oman and Morocco, the 3rd edition of the Gallops will take you deep into the stunning colours, the exotic scents and the majestic scenery of the eternal Rajasthan in India.
Immerse yourself in this exclusive horseback adventure across sumptuous palaces, mighty fortresses, arid lands, colourful markets, and charming villages. Discover the treasures of the Jewel of North India: the holy land of water and fire and an ancient land rich of history, traditions and legends.The Gallops of India will be a mesmerising and initiatory experience on the indigenous majestic Marwari horses with their magical incurved ears shaped like crescent moons.
The Gallops is a combination of a great ride, a passionate challenging race, a unique human and cultural experience, a very entertaining journey and a discovery of breath- taking natural landscapes. More than an equestrian adventure, a human adventure!
This one and only adventure is an international luxury sporting and touristic event which gathers 100 horse riders from all over the world, of all ages (18-70), as many women as men from various equestrian riding backgrounds (polo, trails, jumping, dressage). The participants compete with the help of their loyal adventure companions the Arabian thoroughbred, Barb-Arab and Marwari horses.
Since 2014, the Gallops team has created a new and innovative equestrian concept: an orienteering and endurance horseback race – similar to a Paris-Dakar – organised in teams of 5 riders across 200 km in 5 stages over 6 days. The horse riders have to rely upon their navigation skills by GPS to guide them through the endless landscapes.
The only requirement of our competitors is to be advance level riders, no matter their age, nationality or their regular equestrian discipline. The Gallops riders come to share a once in a lifetime horseback adventure where solidarity, stamina, self-discipline, love of horses and respect of local environment are the basis.
