Association "Horse Tours Georgia" was organized within the framework of the project “Development of Horse Riding Tourism and Building a Network of Local Partnerships in Rural Communities around Borjomi in Georgia” operated by Kaukaz.net Foundation. The project was financed by Polish Development Cooperation Program implemented through Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland in 2013.
The aim of the project was to improve the horse riding tourism service in the district of Borjomi. Project participants - members of the Association were selected from among many applicants by high class Polish specialists with long experience in horse riding tourism. All members of the Association took part in a variety of trainings (safe use of horses in tourism, proper usage of equipment and the principles of movement on the hiking trails in the mountains and in the protected areas). Half of the members of the Association also took part in the training trip to Poland where they directly got acquainted with the European tourism standards and gained valuable experience.
