Horseback Riding in the Southern Ural

Horseback riding routes cross a really picturesque mountainous territory of the southern Urals covered with taiga. Qualified instructors will teach you how to use horse gear, as well as how to ride a horse. Strong and trained horses will take you though thick taiga rich with all kinds of mushrooms and berries, though huge glades full of delicious scents of herbs, through clear mountainous rivers and streams. Charming beauty of landscapes, swimming in refreshing rivers and the heat of fire in the evening will enrich you with energy and health.
