A True Horsewoman
When it comes to hearing stories of fellow horsewoman, Lee brings her own list of adventure to us today. I pulled this off her website, couldn’t be more true:
“As we age, horsemanship can involve facing fear after illness or injury. It’s about honouring old dreams and being open to new realities. My mantra is living well and riding better. Hi, I’m Lee… I invite you to saddle up and ride! “
Her love for horses started young with a little black shetland pony. From there her passion and her story began. She refers to herself as a stay at home horsewoman, wife and mother. On there ranch they raise, train and sell horses that she takes great pride in. In her spare time she she is the voice behind the popular blog on Keystone Equine. Here she share her up and downs of the day and give some amazing advice on everyday horsemanship.

Horse India aims to give you a holiday to remember, to ensure that through our safaris you can experience the passion we hold for the Marwari horse and Rajasthan. We want to share with you the thrill of riding the unique and spirited Marwari.
Ride through magical Rajasthan, feel the spirit of the Marwari horse as you discover history, culture, forts and palaces, by retracing old routes through the forests of the Aravalli (A-ra-Valley) Hills, and riding over the sand dunes of the Thar Desert. You may have heard of the “Golden Triangle” – well we ride the bit in the middle! Between the blue city of Jodhpur, the lake city of Udaipur, and within easy reach of the pink city of Jaipur.Join us to ride Marwari horses in their homeland.Horse India welcomes groups of 4 – 12 riders. They can cater to all riding abilities, but to get the most from the holidays you should be comfortable at a canter in the open countryside.
You can book your own private group, join one of our open groups, or if short on time ask us for Day rates. The most popular time to ride in Rajasthan is between October and March however, the rides can be booked for any time of year to suit your required dates, and will be tailored to suit the weather conditions (summer heat / monsoon rain etc) as well as your riding abilities and requirements. Families with children, and non-riding partners welcome.
