Horse riding holidays and trail rides in Asia

Asia is the birthplace of the ancient horse - the Przewalski horse still roams free in the wilds of Mongolia - and horses are intricately woven throughout its history. Horse riding holidays in Asia offer a unique chance to immerse yourself in the culture and traditions of local people - Buddhist festivals in Tibet or horse and camel fairs in Rajasthan. Riding trails lead you through spectacular high mountain scenery in Ladakh or Kyrgyzstan or across deserts and steppes in Mongolia and India. A riding holiday in Asia is a true adventure.
