It is better to buy a Ass, which rarely complains even if u kick it in the *** and happily carries ur load

So, how much would an ass cost, in Rajastan, Arif?

Mel, u mean Ass, the animal;)

Since im not inclined to any kind of ass, be it the animal or otherwise, i havent gone deep into it.;)

Enquire for Howie.
He could buy an ass, if it is more economical, than a horse.
No backpacker could afford to spend 3000 USD on transport. ;)

Surely, ass would be a cheaper and better option.

Spending 3000 USD on a horse is not advisable

So Howie, what about an ass instead?

Craig,
It might sound fine when sitting in Glasgow, but bumping around Rajasthan by yourself via horse is just not practical or safe. Join a tour when in Rajasthan that uses horses and do it that way. Good Luck.

I'm not in Glasgow, I'm in China right now, been traveling for about 4 months already. And as far as safe goes :D I could post one of my mass emails that I send to my family and friends and you could judge if I do any safe stuff when I travel.

I was going to buy a camel at the camel festival in November, and travel the north with my travel buddy, but a horse seemed a way cooler idea.

And I refuse to take part in tour guides!

U dont seem to need guides Howie.:)
U are adventurous enough to do it alone. U seem fearlessly willing to try everything. I think we need to hear from more travellers like u, to inspire us.
Keep us posted, because I am enjoying reading about your adventures.
What kind of budget are u travelling on? Just asking out of curiousity. Now I am starting to wish I had months at a time to travel. I have not had that much time on my hands, for years.
