    What to bring list:
  1. Sleeping bag – nights in the desert are cool, it’s better to have warm sleeping bag and warm clothes for sleeping
  2. Torch – the best is small one which you can put on your head; it makes easier searching for things at night
  3. Slippers – useful thing when taking a shower
  4. Sunscreen
  5. Sunglasses – are useful also during gallops, they protect against dust and sand
  6. swimming suit - it is possibile that there will be swimming pool in some hotel
  7. Powerbank – most of the days we don’t have electricity
  8. Some warm clothes for evenings
  9. There is no need to take special clothes for riding, however it is reasonable to think about something comfortable to wear unless you want to take breeches. But jeans and trainers will suit as well. It is good to have also some shirt with long sleeves –it protects against the sun.
