Yakutia, the legendary northern state of Siberia.
_ Every spring, the country celebrates it equine origins by holding a kumiss festival, wherein the fermented mare’s milk is enjoyed._

Yakutia has no equal in the Northern Hemisphere in terms of absolute lowest temperature, sometimes reaching minus 170 degree Celsius range.

Under these harsh conditions, the fabled Yakut horses live out of doors in winter lasting eight months. These horses have always played a major role in Yakutia history.'

According to one ancient legend, “first God created a horse, which gave birth to the centaur and then appeared the man.”

In Yakutia, the horse is not a thing of the past.
