Riding Experience
Riders must be reasonably experienced and comfortable riding at all paces on spirited horses, at brisk gallops, and over challenging terrain. This means you can spread your arms at a gallop without being insecure. The horses are used to being ridden with a light contact with the mouth and light use of the leg. Riders should be comfortable in the saddle for several hours in an open environment. Small jumps are possible. 
You will enjoy your trip much more if you are fairly fit - both riding fit and with a reasonably good level of general fitness as there will be some short walking some days.
Please do not overestimate your abilities!

Pace & Riding Terrain
The trip includes 8 riding days with 5-7 hours in the saddle per day. Many opportunities for gallops. Challenging terrain.
The pace is moderate overall, with some good opportunities for a faster pace when the terrain allows. The route takes you through forests, up some quite steep mountain tracks, across open meadows and agricultural land. There are a few places where riders need to dismount to walk over rough ground and lead their horses.

Horses
Our 14 horses are all locally bred. They are mix of thoroughbreds, crossed with Arabs, Akhal-teke and local horses. They are generally between 14.2 and 16 hh, are responsive and forward going but also adaptable and well suited to the terrain

Tack
Russian military saddles are used. Saddle bags are provided and there are seat savers available for those who wish. The horses are mostly ridden in snaffle bits.
