I'm Lasha, a horse-riding tour guide and equestrian from Georgia. I have 10 more years of working experience. In 2020 with two European horse guides, I crossed the Caucasus mountains on the territory of Georgia from east to west for 29 Days and research new trails for riding tours. After that trip, I have more than 20 riding trails in Georgia, and I'm adding more every year.

Route details

Day 1
Tbilisi to Village Shenako, Tusheti

After arriving in Tbilisi, it will be time to visit Tusheti, where an equestrian tour is waiting for us.
At 9 am, a comfortable minivan will come to the hotel, we will pack our bags, sit down and go in the direction of Tusheti. After a 2-hour drive, the road enters the Stori gorge, from where the 70-kilometer Tusheti road begins, which is slightly tiring but a road of scenic beauty. 

After another two hours of driving, we will go to the Abano Pass (2960 m). Despite the tiring road, we will no longer feel weary because beautiful views will unfold in front of us. The road goes down a deep valley and follows the river from the Abano pass. After a 6-hour drive, we will arrive in the village of Shenako, which is distinguished by its houses with balconies and the traditional way of life that has survived till today.

We will have dinner at 7 p.m. and go up to the bonfire lit in the center of the village. The night sky of Tusheti deserves to be mentioned especially. The galaxy of the Milky Way will be as clear as if we are observing celestial bodies with a telescope.

Day 2
Shenako to Chigo to Dartlo to Chesho
Day 3

    I just went on this awesome horseback riding tour in Borjomi, and let me tell you, it was absolutely amazing! We rode through some breathtaking scenery, and I felt like I was completely one with nature. The guides were super cool - they knew everything about the place and were so passionate about horses. If you're up for a special adventure, I totally recommend giving this tour a shot 🌟🐎

    It was awesome, I hadn't been on a horse in ages. The scenery was stunning with those mountains and forests, and Tango, the horse, was super friendly too. Such a great trip!
