Preparation for Long Ride (long distance horseback riding)

Are you dreaming of a real time out from the hectic world on the back of a horse? Long distance riding might be the thing for you. Being one with the animals and the nature can change a person and will most certainly do. My family and I have a long history of being Kazakh horsemen and in breeding exceptional horses. We have lived with these animals for years and know them by heart. We can prepare you with all the knowledge you need for a long ride. My father and I did long riding several times ourselves.

We will prepare you with everything you need to know a couple of days before you trip. Then you get familiar with the animals and how to handle them. In that time, you are welcome to stay with me and my family in our yurt. When you are ready we will set you up with all the animals (horse and camel for transportation) you need and your trip of a lifetime has started. If you need a guide for the trip, we can make that happen according to arrangement.
