I am French and originally from the hinterland of Nice. Since my Caucasian wanderings in 2003, I have been passionate about the mountain ethnic groups of these little-known regions and more particularly that of the Tush, the last semi-nomads of Georgia. Adventurous and organized, I know well all the routes, manage all the expeditions and am your guide. I speak French, English, German, Georgian, a tad of Russian and Spanish.

During the trail we galop, canter and trot but be aware that they are not race horses. Riders considering this trail must have a good level of physical fitness and general good health.
