"horse and cart" Horse Carriages Tip by uglyscot

Horse Carriages, Petra: 8 reviews and 15 photos

To get through the siq to reach Petra takes some time. The options are: to walk, ride a horse or camel, or take a horse and cart. In view of our age and fitness we opted for the latter. To begin with the cart is not the most comfortable vehicle. Then then poor horse was having great difficulting walking on the cobbled areas where he slipped and slithered, and had to endure his owner's whip; whereas on the tarmac he went at a cracking pace. By the time we got back at the end of the trip, we felt it would have been better for us and the horse if we'd walked.
