Horse rentals

Until today, horses have been absolutely indispensable in local farming and many men and women can ride them very well. Equestrian tourism has recently thrived and you can rent a horse in several places in Omalo and other villages. If you contact a guest house, you will get a helping hand. There is a fixed rate of GEL 40 per horse and day (you may rent for half a day, too). A guide is required even for smaller groups at a price of GEL 50. One guide will be provided for a group of about 10 people, i.e. more guides for larger groups. You are not asked about your riding skills but generally expected to manage the horse somehow on your own. Nonetheless, the guides know that not all tourists are experienced riders and usually walk slowly.
