  • Overview
    • Iran has a multitude of ethnic cultures.  Iran is also a country with four very distinct seasons.   With its diverse fauna and flora Iran is ready to be explored, this time by means of our Iranian horses. The lush Caspina Hyrcanian forest and stunning Alborz mountain ranges in the north; the peaceful Dasht- e - Kavir desert and the amazing features of the Lout desert in the south; the wild Zagrous ranges in the west, homeland of our Bakhtiari and Qashqa’i  Nomads, could be one of your destinations. With great stamina and sure-footedness our various breeds such as Arabian, Dareshori, Turkman make it unforgettable for you. Horseback riding in Iran has an ancient lineage in history and culture. It started with the use of horsemanship to win in combat on the battlefield and lead to the significant contribution of horses in nomadic migration to reach richer pastures. Nowadays, horseback riding trips in Iran focus on representing the lifestyle and beauty of nature. Depending on your choice the horseback riding trip gives you the chance of riding Arabian horses to follow the Bakhtiari Nomad's foot prints in wild mountain environments.  Dareshori horses help you to reach Qashqa’i Nomads in their black tents. Turkman horses lead you among the lush forests to expose the lifestyle of Turkmanian.
