Forbes recommends Kyrgyzstan as the best country to travel on horseback. The American financial and economic magazine has published an article in which readers are recommended the top five countries for horse riding, and Kyrgyzstan is included in the list. “This one is for experienced riders who’ve always wanted to truly traverse a county on horseback. On this trip, you’ll be like Marco Polo exploring the most beautiful passes alongside what used to be the Silk Road. Arrive in the capital Bishkek and then embark on your adventure where you experience the Juuku Pass, Kumtor Gorge and Uch Koshkon settlements. Along the way, you can see animals like yaks and wild ibex. Accommodations will be in tents or at shepherd’s homes, so prepare for a truly off the grid experience,” the magazine writes.

The list also includes also California, Jamaica, Argentina and Iceland.
