A visit to Petra Jordan, and its ‘horse mafia’

A visit to Petra Jordan, and its ‘horse mafia’

“You want a horse? You wont make it five feet” – This was the advice of a young man who is part of the “horse mafia” that operates here in Petra. If you go into Petra as a group you have to pay an additional 7 JD on top of the large sum of cash you already dished out. This money goes directly to the horse mafia in order to keep them off your tail and to allow you to ride a horse if you wish.
