There are places in Russia where horse tours can be carried out for 5-7 months a year. For example, in the Krasnodar Territory and Adygea. And there are those where you need to catch the sunny days. In particular, in the Urals or in Buryatia.  Winter equestrian tourism in some regions is also possible. If the climate allows, there is no danger of avalanches, the roads are suitable for walking, then why not.

Khakassia
 
In Khakassia, horse trails are laid past caves, graves and ancient buildings. These trails are designed for lovers of history and archeology. Barrow burial grounds and rock carvings are also found in the region. All this is combined with beautiful nature, surrounded by streams and mountain rivers. Routes are mainly designed for people with average training.
Buryatia
 
Buryatia offers horse trails of varying degrees of difficulty. Most of them include  Shumak Pass and lead to waterfalls and mineral springs. Tourists are usually offered strong and  calm horses of Mongolian or Buryat breeds. Tours last no more than a week - this time is enough to see all the sights and admire nature.

Altai
 
Horse tours in Altai pass through meadows, steppes and taiga. They are designed both for beginners and professionals who will have to cross the mountainous terrain. There are also rivers, lakes and waterfalls. But in order to fully enjoy the nature, it is better to take an instructor with you - it will be safer.

Ural
 
This region is not suitable for winter tours due to its climate and landscape. But in the warm season, you can make a grand transition through the South Urals. The route runs through the taiga, rich in mushrooms and berries, with crossings over the river.

Many trails go through the Bashkir State Reserve. You can get here only with instructors.

Baikal
 
Baikal often has combined tours, when you are riding a part of the way on a horse, and   overcoming another by boat or kayak.  

All tours are extremely interesting and intense. In addition, they give an opportunity to see how Baikal lives, get acquainted with the culture and way of life of people there.

Krasnodar region and Adygea

In the Kuban and Adygea regions,  horse tours begin in March. In the Krasnodar Territory, the best places are Sochi with Krasnaya Polyana, Yeisk district, Tuapse and Mostovskoy district.

Adygea for such walks offers the area of ​​the Una-Koz ridge and St. Michael’s Monastery. On the way, the panoramas of the Lago-Naki Highlands, the Main Caucasian Range, Chugusha, and Fisht open up.

Moscow region
 
You can also ride a horse not far from the Russian capital. In the suburbs there are enough camp sites and special complexes where you can book a horseback tour or take a few riding lessons.
