Our horses:

Our horses are the Mongolian breed. We have the special contract with a horse farm, where horses are trained for alpine conditions. Our horses are not afraid to cross the river and go on the stones or rocks. They know how to walk in rain or snow conditions. In Kyrgyzstan it snows often in the mountains, even in summer, but our horses can produce grass in the mountains by themselves. Our horses are shoded . We guarantee that we have trained horses. Don`t try to take the horses out of the village, they can be not trained special in the mountains. We really know the bad experiences of using horses out villages.

888Saddles:The Kyrgyz people say: "You can have no horse, but be sure to have a saddle”. If you ask your neighbor for a horse it is common thing, but the saddle, he gives it to you with a great difficulty.Because it always cost much more expensive than a horse. Good saddle cost today two horses and can be used for a long time.
