Horse Riding in Matheran
Matheran (2,500 ft) is a heritage hill station located off Mumbai-Pune route and a popular weekend getaway. One can enjoy a horseback ride here like the erstwhile British years as cars and vehicles are prohibited in Matheran and cars have to be parked 3 kms from the town centre.
Horse riding is one of the preferred ways of getting around in Matheran. Finding a horse is not very difficult. It is a great way to travel for people who prefer not to walk, but rates must be negotiated in advance. Horses that look like thoroughbreds are available for experienced riders. First time riders and kids prefer ones that are shorter and often resemble mules.
Seasonality: October - May
