Roman Chariot Driving Video

by Darley Newman

In the historic Roman city of Jerash in Northern Jordan, I was able to try one of the most unique equestrian experiences I could have ever imagined, riding in a horse drawn chariot- rather racing- as a part of RACE, the Roman Army and Chariot Experience. It’s the NASCAR of over 2000 years ago, a fast, exhilarating Roman chariot reenactment race in Jerash’s well-preserved hippodrome. Check out this video of my Roman Chariot experience!

Watch more Jordan footage in Equitrekking's two Jordan episodes, Jordan: Wadi Rum, Aqaba & Jerash and Jordan: Petra, Royal Stables & Dead Sea. Check your local PBS listings for dates and times. Take an equestrian vacation in Jordan and ride with the Bedouin, including Bedouin guide Atallah Swalhen on his Arabian horses on the Jordan Bedouin Trek & Classic Tour, which includes Petra, Jerash and the Dead Sea!
