“Good bride has a price, good horse is priceless”

Advantages of horse riding can be talked indefinitely, and it was a key reason why ancient nomads had great health and endurance in comparing with us, the city dwellers. There were plenty of other factors indeed, they lived in a rough climate and people were in constant pressure of psychological and physiological factors. They had to take care of themselves not only for several days in advance, but have a constant food supply for a winter season and horse was a great and valuable asset. For centuries horse was a center of spiritual and economic life of Kyrgyz tribes and many folklore tales and songs mention them followed by multiple depictions in national jewelry and crafts.
