Basic riding skills
Most of the horses that we use in horse riding tours are from dare shuri breed (one of the Persian horse breeds), which used by qashqaee nomads in the past.
This breed has good stamina to pass the path with ups and downs, also the physical structure is suitable for walking in nature, and it has a good stamina for long term riding.It’s height probably ranged between 145-155 cm. also we have two horses from Caspian breed that are smaller, so children and Teenager enjoy from riding with them.
The types of saddles that we use for our horses:We use 3 type of saddles: a)west saddles b)berno saddles (that made in Iran) c)hungry saddles The Iran’s army and Qashqaee nomads have used berno saddles.
On this program we start horseback riding from our riding club enclosure, which is nice and large place; If you have good horse riding ability we continue riding to foothill of mount Derak.
