Horse Trekking and Riding In Ukraine
Horse Riding in the Carpathian Mountains
The nature of the Ukrainian Carpathian Mountains and riverbanks are ideally suited for riding holidays. Travelling by developed routes tourists become acquainted with different districts, way of life and culture of local people that hasn't changed much over the last three hundred years.
In many mountain districts you may ride as much and as often as you want or take it at a more leisurely pace. In some areas you will be offered a special hutsul breed of horse - "Hutsulyk", the kind natured, quiet and friendly horse. With its strong constitution it is considered to be one of the best mountain breeds. This horse is respected for its firmness of foot and capability for carrying of heavy load through mountain valleys. The Hutsul horse breed can be referred to as the ancient one, because the first mentions about it date back to 1603. In a history there are facts that these horses were purchased for the Austrian army. Hungary and the principality of Luxembourg only bought the best horses for breeding and the Ukrainian Hutsul very much fell into this category. The local people very much appreciate the mountain horse, praising it in their songs and in their legends. In almost every village as well as in the tourist centres you can hire a horse for riding at a very reasonable prices. Near the regional centers there are many stables where riding instruction is available. A ride in the national clothes will give you unforgettable impressions.
